About the Firm
In 1968, Joseph S. McCarthy and James T. Wharton established the Law Offices of McCarthy and Wharton, with their two main clients, Erie Insurance Company and Allstate Insurance Company -- both of which remain clients of the firm today. Over the first 10 years, while housed in a historic property at 100 South Washington Street in Rockville, Maryland, the firm saw significant growth, adding attorneys and expanding its office by acquiring the adjacent historic property at 104 South Washington Street. In 1998, after another 20 years of significant growth and practice expansion, the firm acquired another adjacent historic house at 108 South Washington Street, and these three Victorian properties served as the firm’s principal office over that 40-year period.
In 2007, the firm opened offices in Baltimore consistent with the mid-Atlantic regional expansion of the practice. The Baltimore office is located directly behind the circuit courthouse in the elegant Van Sant Building at 210 East Lexington Street, Suite 300, in Baltimore City. These offices have already expanded in both size and capacity to support of the continuing overall growth of the firm.
McCarthy Wilson LLP is now comprised of approximately 25 lawyers and over 50 highly skilled legal support personnel, working on cases in the state and federal trial and appellate courts of Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, from our Rockville and Baltimore locations.
Founded in 1968, the lawyers at McCarthy Wilson LLP have hundreds of years of combined experience. For more information about the firm, please go to http://www.mcwilson.com or call 301-762-7770.
