About us

This is a non-profit community service of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland. We connect you with vetted, qualified, local lawyers.

Lawyer qualifications

No one other than duly admitted members of the Bar may practice law. To be admitted to the Bar in Maryland, one must meet high educational standards and pass a comprehensive examination to demonstrate his/her qualifications. Upon being admitted to the Bar, a lawyer is sworn into the Bar by the Court of Appeals.

Lawyer responsibilities

A lawyer's first duty is to the person who employs his/her services, you the client. The lawyer will work to see that you obtain the benefit of all legal rights you may have in connection with the issue presented. Since your lawyer is bound by the high standards of his/her profession to be completely loyal to your case and to advise you fully of your rights and obligations, you, in return, must give your lawyer all the facts and make a fair disclosure of the entire situation.

$50 for a 30-minute consultation from a qualified, local lawyer.
