Forty-six years ago, Steve Paley and Mark Rothman recognized a need for sophisticated
business and tax lawyers in Montgomery County, and Paley Rothman was born. They chose
Bethesda for its proximity to D.C. and convenient suburban location. Little did they know
what Bethesda would become.
“We’re proud to see how this area has grown into a thriving business and cultural hub,
and how Paley Rothman has become the law firm of choice for informed businesses and
individuals,” says Co-President Robert Maclay.
Satisfied with their results and the firm’s service, clients have stayed with the firm through
the years. Many in the firm's diverse workforce have been in the family for more than 20
years. Each of the 40 attorneys applies the “Paley Perspective” to matters in more than 20
areas. These include business and corporate transactions, tax, commercial and residential
real estate, healthcare, commercial finance and litigation, employment, family law, science,
technology and intellectual property, and estate planning and administration.
“Clients rely on us to identify and address key issues, analyze and interpret complex
information and develop solution-oriented strategies that protect their interests and ensure
their long-term success,” says Co-President Jim Hammerschmidt. “Our problem-solving
perspective offers favorable results and makes us a leading law firm in Maryland.”
The firm remains committed to nurturing deep roots in the community. For 46 years,
lawyers and staff have participated in and contributed to hundreds of local cultural
organizations, food kitchens, religious organizations, chambers of commerce, state and local
bar associations, local hospitals and more.
