Miller, Miller & Canby’s James Thompson was honored, along with Larry Shulman of Shulman Rogers and Mark Goldstein of Paley Rothman, with a President’s Citation for Outstanding Service on Friday, May 4. The three attorneys each received the award at the 2018 Annual Meeting and Law Day Celebration of the Montgomery County Bar Association in Bethesda, Maryland. The men were recognized for re-establishing and bringing new energy to the Senior Lawyers Society of the Montgomery County Bar Foundation.
The Montgomery County Bar Foundation was established to support the Bar Association of Montgomery County, to help educate legal professionals and the general public, and to provide pro bono legal services and charitable support to the community. The Senior Lawyers Society was formed to support senior lawyers in the county so they may continue to be active and to contribute to the legal community and the public. It has quickly become the fastest-growing section of the Bar Association.
After a morning of informative programming, the honorees each received their Citation during a special luncheon featuring keynote speaker U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein.
Mr. Thompson’s distinguished career has spanned more than 45 years, during which he has served clients and the legal community. He concentrates his practice in eminent domain, real estate valuation litigation, tax assessment appeals, and civil litigation involving complex real estate and commercial disputes. He has led the litigation practice group at Miller, Miller & Canby for more than 25 years. He may be reached at 301.762.5212 or via email.
