Our Montgomery County office is close to being fully staffed
Greenbelt, Maryland (Vocus) October 19, 2009
Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A., the second largest firm in Prince George’s County, has added two lawyers to its new Montgomery County office.
“Our Montgomery County office is close to being fully staffed,” stated David Bulitt, JGL’s assistant managing director who will head the new office. The Montgomery County campus is located at 111 Rockville Pike, #975 in the heart of the Rockville Town Center. The office will open in early November 2009.
“We are pleased to have Harvey S. Jacobs, Esq., and Regina A. DeMeo, Esq., joining us as we move fulltime into Montgomery County,” said Bulitt. “Each of them helps us fulfill our strategic plan which calls for not only expansion of offices but expansion of talent and areas of law,” he continued.
Both Jacobs and DeMeo have been practicing as solos in Montgomery County.
Jacobs has more than two decades of experience in corporate and business transactions—from residential real estate settlements to intellectual property. “I have called my firm ‘The Internet Law Firm,” explained Jacobs, “because I know how to capture the net’s resources for my clients, many of whom have been high tech clients.” “I am pleased to bring my experience with local and national entrepreneurs in the internet, telecommunications, software, and emerging technologies areas to JGL’s 40-plus years of experience with local and regional businesses. The synergies of my practice areas and JGL’s established business base are exciting,” he said.
Jacobs’ many professional accomplishments include handling “roll-up” of the then-burgeoning paging industry; handling all legal and financial aspects of mergers, acquisitions, outright sales and licensing of telecommunications assets; representing a wide variety of business clients as outside general counsel (environmental remediation contractor, postal service government contractor, real estate developers, real estate investors, skydiving center, computer manufacturers, software companies), and representing over 80 “Dot-Com” and other high tech clients.
Jacobs will join JGL effective December 1, 2009.
DeMeo has been practicing family law in the DC Metropolitan Area for over a decade, and has been listed in the Washingtonian Magazine as one of the Top Divorce Lawyers in the area. She has been a long-standing volunteer at the DC Bar and DC Family Court, and is active with both her alma maters Georgetown University and The George Washington University Law School, where she is lecturing this fall. In 2006, she was trained in Mediation and Collaborative Divorce and has been approved as an Alternate Dispute Resolution facilitator for both the District of Columbia Family Court and Montgomery County Circuit Court. In 2009, DeMeo was named as a “Rising Star” in Maryland’s SuperLawyer Magazine. She is currently serving a three-year term on the DC Bar’s Family Law Section Steering Committee, and was recently elected President of Collaborative Divorce Association, Inc., which is an interdisciplinary group of lawyers, mental health professionals and financial experts in Montgomery County who practice and promote collaborative law. “I am very excited to join JGL’s family law group,” said DeMeo. “Virtually every year several members of this group of JGL attorneys are recognized by Washingtonian Magazine, SuperLawyer Magazine, and various state and national groups as outstanding family law practitioners. It is an honor to be part of this group,” she said. “I have a particular interest in the emerging field of collaborative law, and JGL has given me the green light to move forward in expanding its family law practice in that area, as well as supporting the firm’s long-established family law litigation and mediation practices.,” DeMeo said.
DeMeo will join JGL effective November 1, 2009.
With the addition of Jacobs and DeMeo, JGL will have 33 lawyers. Its main office will continue to be located at 6404 Ivy Lane, Suite 400, Greenbelt, Maryland.
