Paley Rothman

4800 Hampden Lane, 6th Floor




What should prospective clients know about your firm?

In 1972, Paley Rothman became one of the first tax/business firms in Montgomery County to hire a female attorney. Since then, our firm has expanded and more than 30 percent of our attorneys are women. This gives us an advantage when representing our female clients—women going through divorce, custody battles, adoption issues, real estate matters, estate planning, employment issues and more. We also understand our male clients well.

How has working at Paley Rothman, a mid-sized regional law firm, enhanced your career?

Several attorneys here left careers at large downtown firms. Moving to Paley significantly improved their work-life balance by eliminating long commutes and enabling them to be more involved with their families (e.g. attending mid-day school events). Professionally, it was a leap of faith. Many clients followed them to Paley Rothman, and our platform allowed them to expand the type of services provided to their clients. We handle a wide-range of legal counsel and representation in diverse areas, including litigation, government contracts, tax, retirement planning, corporate transactions and a variety of other matters for clients, both locally and nationally.

How do you measure success in your career?

Most of us measure success by satisfied clients pleased with the outcomes of their legal matters. Many of us take pride in sharing the “Paley Perspective,” which means arguing new areas of the law in creative and productive ways for our clients, as well as using cutting-edge legal strategies and applying them to our cases. Thinking outside the box is an excellent way of helping our clients achieve their goals.
