Joseph, Greenwald & Laake Starts Major Expansion

Firm to Open New Office in Rockville
Debora Fajer-Smith Joins As Part of Expansion
Lawyers To Be Added in Greenbelt and Rockville Offices

Greenbelt, Maryland-Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A., one of the largest and oldest firms in Prince George’s County, will be opening a satellite campus in Rockville Town Center by Labor Day. JGL plans to house a dozen lawyers there, as well as paralegals and support staff. “A few will come from our Greenbelt headquarters and the rest will be new laterals,” said assistant managing director, David Bulitt, Esq., who is chairing the Firm’s expansion efforts.

JGL will take over 7,517 square feet of newly renovated space at 111 Rockville Pike, just a stone’s throw from the Montgomery County Judicial Center and in the center of the expanding business and legal heart of Montgomery County.

A Montgomery County office is not new for JGL. “We have had a small satellite office in Rockville for many years, but we needed more than an outpost to meet the needs of our expanding practice in Montgomery County and further west. We have come to understand that our future lies in diversifying our practice areas and our locations,” said Bulitt.

“Our Greenbelt office will remain our headquarters, and expansion is planned in both offices. If we move a lawyer to the Rockville office, we will replace him or her with another lawyer in Greenbelt,” Bulitt said.
In anticipation of the opening of the Rockville campus, Debora Fajer-Smith, Esq., recently joined the Firm’s Greenbelt’s office. “The addition of Ms. Fajer-Smith met three goals. She brings a new practice area to the firm-worker’s compensation. She also has a substantial practice in Prince George’s County and in Southern Maryland, thereby strengthening the Firm’s foothold there. And she will take the place of another lawyer who will move to the Rockville office,” explained Bulitt. (See attached biography of Ms. Fajer-Smith.)

“Not only are we expanding our locations, we are seeking to expand our practice areas. We hope that Ms. Fajer-Smith’s addition will be the tip of the iceberg, with several new practice areas to be bolstered or added within the next year,” according to Bulitt.

Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A., currently has 31 lawyers, operating from its offices at 6404 Ivy Lane, Suite 400, Greenbelt, Maryland. The Firm’s areas of practice include family law, business, tax, criminal, personal injury, and medical malpractice. JGL serves clients in Washington, DC, and throughout Maryland.
