New York, NY (PressExposure) October 02, 2013 -- Seymour Stern has seen Frederick grow from a small town to a thriving entrepreneurial center, where established businesses have been thriving and new businesses have found a community that is conducive to their growth. And for many owners of those businesses, Mr. Stern has served as an essential legal counsel.
"I grew up in Frederick, went to high school here, married and raised a family here," said Mr. Stern. "I've seen Frederick undergo significant changes over the last 50 years, and my practice has kept pace with those changes, providing legal services to old and new businesses alike".
In 1963, as a young lawyer, Mr. Stern introduced himself to the Frederick business community and announced that he was ready to practice law on their behalf. He immediately joined the Frederick County Bar Association, the Maryland State Bar Association, of which he is still a member. He also was active in the American Bar Association for a number of years.. One of his prized achievements was serving as president of the Maryland State Bar Association during 1990-1991. He also served as president of the Frederick County Bar Association.
Earlier this year, Mr. Stern merged his firm, Seymour B. Stern & Associates, with the Mid-Atlantic based law firm of Offit Kurman. At that time, Ted Offit, managing principal of Offit Kurman, commented: "Mr. Stern is one of the foremost attorneys of Frederick. He has a superb reputation based upon his long association with Frederick's business community, his participation in numerous civic organizations, and his reputation for providing the highest level of ethical services."
As Mr. Offit noted, Mr. Stern's commitment to Frederick has extended beyond his work as one of the community's leading attorneys. He has worked diligently to improve his community by serving numerous civic organizations from the Frederick County Heart Association to the Frederick County Red Cross, from the Frederick City Personnel Commission to the Board of Directors of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce, from the Board of Trustees of Frederick Memorial Hospital to the Board of Directors of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. And the list goes on and on.
"I am proud to continue my services to Frederick and look forward to many more years of being of service," said Mr. Stern. "And I shall do so as a member of Offit Kurman, one of the fastest-growing, most innovative and creative law firms in the mid-Atlantic region."
In addition to its offices in Frederick, Offit Kurman has offices in Baltimore, Bethesda, Owings Mills, and Howard County, Maryland; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Tysons Corner, Virginia; and Wilmington, Delaware. The firm's website is http://www.offitkurman.com
