Miller Poppleton Moves to “Retired Counsel” with Offit Kurman
For Immediate Release
December 20,2016| Maple Lawn, MD Offit Kurman announces the retirement of commercial trial attorney Miller Poppleton. His retirement marks the next stage in an illustrious 40-year career spent providing legal counsel and guidance to clients in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. In moving on from his current role, Mr. Poppleton has taken a “Retired Counsel” position with Offit Kurman.
The change in Mr. Poppleton’s status is effective January 1st, 2017. Starting on that date, Offit Kurman commercial litigation attorney Brian Loffredo will take over all of Mr. Poppleton’s active cases and will accept all new cases on Mr. Poppleton’s behalf. While he will officially retire as an equity partner, Mr. Poppleton will remain fully licensed and will retain full access to the office and email.
For four decades, Miller has advised clients on how to avoid litigation through alternative dispute resolution, providing strategic counseling in the construction industry to encourage early resolution, while at the same time ensuring that the requisite notices and conditions have been met in the event litigation becomes necessary. This experience and expertise in pre-litigation services have provided clients with smooth transitions for any ensuing disputes.
Prior to affiliating with Offit Kurman, Mr. Poppleton was a co-founder and principal of a mid-sized general practice firm: Poppleton, Garrett & Polott, P.C., in Rockville, Maryland. He also served in the U.S. Navy Nuclear Submarine Corps for six years, with two years aboard the nuclear submarine U.S.S. Skate (SSN 578).
Offit Kurman had only 18 practitioners when Mr. Poppleton joined the firm’s Maple Lawn office—6 months after the office was established. Today, the firm is affiliated with more than 130 attorneys in multiple office locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
“It is with great admiration and respect that we congratulate our colleague, Miller Poppleton, on a stellar legal career,” said Ted Offit, co-founder and CEO of Offit Kurman. “His contributions to our firm have advanced our reputation as one of the fastest growing, full-service law firms in the Mid-Atlantic. I look forward to continuing to work with Miller in his new role as Retired Counsel, as we continue to meet and exceed the needs of Offit Kurman’s diverse clients.
Please join Offit Kurman as we bid Miller farewell and wish him a successful, enjoyable, and happy retirement.
