New Practitioner Section    

A Guide to the Montgomery County Circuit Court
and
Reception with the Bar Association Sections

Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to help pack boxes for MANNA.  That small gesture makes a great difference for local families and is something that the New Practitioner's Section is proud to be a part of.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS:  On March 21, 2017, we are hosting A Guide to the Circuit Court and Bar Association Sections from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.  This event will kick-off at 5 p.m. with a tour of the Circuit Court and culminate in a reception and section fair in the Cafeteria of the Executive Office building. The various sections of the Bar Association will each host their own table and be able to provide information about their section, such as upcoming events, programs offered, how to become involved, etc.  Drinks and Refreshments will be provided.  This is a great event to meet your fellow practitioners and learn more about each section of the Bar Association and what they have to offer. Both newer and more experienced attorneys are invited and encouraged to attend. Please RSVP to Elizabeth or Josh.

On March 29, 2017, Judge McGann will be hosting a seminar on Courtroom Presentation that should not be missed.  This will be a great opportunity for New and Seasoned Practitioner's alike.  The seminar will take place in Courtroom 8C of the Circuit Court from 5:00pm - 6:00pm.

Stay tuned for further emails and other announcements about meetings and events in the New Year!  We’ll keep you in the loop regarding any changes or additions to the existing schedule..

The 2017 Annual Meeting will be held on Friday, May 5, 2017, at the Gaithersburg Hilton. The New Practitioners Section will be presenting The New Practitioners Guide to Building Your Practice in Today’s World with speakers Donald A. Rea, Esq., Partner at Saul Ewing LLP and Dean D. Jill Green, Assistant Dean of Law Career Development at the University of Baltimore School of Law.  The focus of the program will be on developing your business plan, whether as a solo or as an associate in a firm, and utilizing social media to appropriately market yourself. Make sure to register!

CHAMBER CHATS

Please join us on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 12:30 PM, for a special Chamber Chat!  Judge Karla N. Smith and Judge John M. Maloney will be co-hosting this Chamber Chat.  The Chamber Chat will be held in Conference Room #4600, South Tower, 4th Floor of the Circuit Court.

Judge Smith has been on the Circuit Court bench since January 23, 2015.  Prior to that, she served as Assistant State’s Attorney from 1996 until she was sworn in as an Associate Judge for the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County, in August 2012.  Judge Maloney joined our Circuit Court bench on January 30, 2015.  Prior to that, he served as an Assistant State’s Attorney from 1989 – 2007, and as a Deputy State’s Attorney from 2007 – 2015.  
Judge Smith is currently in the CINA and Family rotation and beginning July 2017 will be on the Civil rotation.  Judge Maloney is currently in the CINA and Family rotation and beginning July 2017 will be on the Criminal rotation.  

This is an excellent opportunity for practitioners, both new and experienced, to gain insight and knowledge in how to refine your trial advocacy skills, become a better lawyer and to get to know two esteemed members of our Circuit Court bench in an informal setting.  The Chamber Chat is open to all members of the Bar, not only members of the New Practitioner’s Section.  Bring your lunch and take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions about practicing law in the Circuit Court and learn essential litigation skills.  We encourage all to join!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (301) 738-5700 or jamie.maier@bwg-law.com.  We hope to see you at the Chamber Chat!
