Welcome to The Maryland Litigator!!

Hello and welcome.  I’m glad you came.

I’m Jeremy Rachlin, a Senior Associate at the law firm of JDKatz, P.C., in Bethesda, Maryland.  I practice civil and commercial litigation, employment litigation, and estate and trust litigation.  Prior to my time in practice, I spent a year “in the trenches” as a law clerk to a judge on the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland***.  If you want to know more about me, please click here for my official biography.  It’s almost as cool as a baseball card, but not quite.  And no chewing gum included.

One of the things that I enjoy most about my job is talking to folks about the law, about how the courts function, and about legal issues that are important to them.  I understand that far too often lawyers speak in our own language, sometimes referred to as “legalese,” other times referred to in more colorful terms by clients who are annoyed that they just don’t understand what we’re trying to say.  This is not only an ineffective way to communicate, but is entirely frustrating to folks who want to know more about legal issues that directly impact them.

Through this blog, I hope to speak to legal consumers, those who are just curious about the law, and those who happen to stumble upon my blog through the wonder of Google.  It is my goal to use this blog as a forum to answer questions that I often field from friends, potential clients, existing clients, and others, regarding the practice and process of law.  If you have any ideas for posts or wish to chat with me more, please feel free to e-mail me at jeremy@jdkatz.com.

So sit back, enjoy, add me to your Blogroll and your RSS feeds, subscribe to me by e-mail, and keep reading and commenting!


*** If you want to know about what the Circuit Court is, how it differs from the District Court, and what kind of cases are heard in Circuit Court, you’ll just have to stay tuned for a future post!
