Forty years ago, Stein Sperling founding partners Paul Stein, Don Sperling and Millard Bennett set out to create a law firm that focused on making a positive and innovative difference in the way law is practiced. “We wanted to create an environment where talented attorneys with a passion for practicing law could collaborate with colleagues who shared that passion,” explains Bennett. Stein elaborates: “We didn’t get here by accident. The driving idea behind Stein Sperling has been to build something unique and strong from within, combining individual strengths into a stronger whole.”

Headquartered in Rockville, Stein Sperling and its 50 attorneys and six offices serve clients in the metropolitan Washington area and beyond. The firm’s areas of practice include business, civil litigation, tax, family law, estates and trusts, employment law, real estate, personal injury and criminal defense. Firm partners credit the firm’s steady growth and success to its unique culture. As attorney Monica Harms explains: “We want our lawyers to focus on areas of law where they have a particular passion. Our model is about harnessing those individual passions into a collective energy dedicated to serving our clients’ needs.”

Stein Sperling’s overriding philosophy translates directly to its client service. “For us, it’s about listening, being attentive, empathizing and responding quickly and proactively to our clients’ needs and wants,” says attorney Jeff Schwaber. “We understand how legal issues affect our clients, often in a very profound and personal way. We want to relate to their issues, stand in their shoes and ultimately communicate and advocate for what is important to them.”
