I just learned that I passed the Maryland “Attorneys’ Bar,” which is obviously good news.  The Attorney’s Bar is a shortened bar exam that Maryland offers attorneys who have been practicing more than five years.  I am glad to have that behind me—it has been almost ten years since I have taken a test that was graded.  As soon as I am sworn in to the Maryland Bar I will be licensed to practice in the three DC area jurisdictions:  DC, Maryland and Virginia.  That will allow me to better serve my clients, especially those with claims arising in Maryland.
