Counties and their elected officials face numerous legal challenges on a daily basis. Whether determining the extent of a county’s authority, defending against a lawsuit, answering a Public Information Act request, or advising on an ethics question, counties need legal representation. Some counties maintain their own law department while others retain an outside firm or private practitioner. Regardless of their individual circumstances, county attorneys provide a vital service to your county. Speakers will discuss the myriad issues and duties that your county attorney provides on your behalf and highlight a few recent court decisions that could have major county ramifications. Speakers include:
Edgar A. Baker, Jr., Wicomico County Attorney
Margaret Ann Nolan, Howard County Solicitor
John F. Breads, Senior Counsel, LGIT
