Paula Calimafde, Jim Hammerschmidt and Alan Mark were guests on 104.7 WONK-FM, “M&T Bank Local Business Spotlight” on November 9, 2020.

Paula, Jim and Alan discussed employment law, real estate, estate planning and more issues that small businesses and individuals are experiencing due to COVID-19 and the plethora of economic changes that are occurring. They shared tips and advice with Host, Michael Czarnecki, and discussed how Paley Rothman has been a monumental part of Montgomery County’s growth for the past 50 years.

When asked what sets Paley Rothman apart from other law firms in the area, Alan Mark said, "It’s not just what is in front of us, but it’s what is over the horizon.” Having the ability to see over the horizon and provide council to our clients to mitigate issues before it is too late is what sets Paley Rothman apart from the competition.
