Paley Rothman, Attorneys at Law

4800 Hampden Lane, 6th Floor




Forty-six years ago, Steve Paley and Mark Rothman recognized a need for sophisticated business and tax lawyers in Montgomery County, and Paley Rothman was born. They chose Bethesda for its proximity to D.C. and convenient suburban location. Little did they know what Bethesda would become.

“We’re proud to see how this area has grown into a thriving business and cultural hub, and how Paley Rothman has become the law firm of choice for informed businesses and individuals,” says Co-President Robert Maclay.

Satisfied with their results and the firm’s service, clients have stayed with the firm through the years. Many in the firm’s diverse workforce have been in the family for more than 20 years. Each of the 40 attorneys applies the “Paley Perspective” to matters in more than 20 areas. These include business and corporate transactions, tax, commercial and residential real estate, healthcare, commercial finance and litigation, employment, family law, science, technology and intellectual property, and estate planning and administration.

“Clients rely on us to identify and address key issues, analyze and interpret complex information and develop solution-oriented strategies that protect their interests and ensure their long-term success,” says Co-President Jim Hammerschmidt. “Our problem-solving perspective offers favorable results and makes us a leading law firm in Maryland.”

The firm remains committed to nurturing deep roots in the community. For 46 years, lawyers and staff have participated in and contributed to hundreds of local cultural organizations, food kitchens, religious organizations, chambers of commerce, state and local bar associations, local hospitals and more.
