Offit Kurman Business and Real Estate Attorney Celebrates 50 Years of Law

As you may recall from our blog post “Offit Kurman Business and Real Estate Attorney Honored,” Seymour Stern recently celebrated 50 years practicing law. He was honored by Frederick, Maryland Mayor Randy McClement, who presented Seymour with a 50th Anniversary Serving the Frederick Community Resolution that reads: “The City of Frederick congratulates you for providing 50 years of outstanding legal services to the Frederick business community and for diligently serving your community through your work on numerous civic organizations and boards. Your continued dedication to the citizens and businesses of the Frederick community is valued and appreciated.” Seymour was recently featured in the Maryland State Bar Association’s (MSBA) new video series “Maryland Legal Lions,” which is intended to highlight the wisdom, experience, and motivations of Maryland’s long-practicing bar members for the benefit of younger and future generations of attorneys, as well as their own contemporaries. Maryland Legal Lions: Seymour B. Stern

Seymour Stern has been practicing law since October 14, 1963. In the above video, MSBA Immediate Past President John P. Kudel asks him to reflect on his legal practice. “My family was in retail,” explains Seymour. “I knew from junior high school on that I was not going to go into retail. And when I thought about the opportunities – what to do – the law, at that time, struck me as a very honorable profession. It was respected by members of the community and it gave me a chance to help people.” In 1963, Seymour also joined the Frederick County Bar Association and the Maryland State Bar Association, in both of which he is still a member. He has also served as president of both organizations. Earlier in 2013, Seymour’s firm, Seymour B. Stern & Associates, merged with Offit Kurman Attorneys at Law. “Mr. Stern is one of the foremost attorneys of Frederick,” said Offit Kurman managing principal Ted Offit. “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.” Real Estate AttorneyIf you have any questions for Offit Kurman business and real estate attorney Seymour Stern, you can reach him at or 301.575.9700.
