“When Steve Paley and I decided more than 50 years ago to each leave the law firms we were working for in D.C. and start our own firm in Montgomery County, everyone thought we were a little crazy. But that turned out to be a wise decision. I no longer practice full time, although I do continue to maintain a relationship as counsel to several long time clients. ”
