Meet Offit Kurman’s Founders – Part 1

In 1987, brothers Maurice Offit and Theodore “Ted” Offit founded a two-person legal practice in a small office just outside Baltimore, Maryland. The brothers ran the entire business, from providing legal counsel to managing the day-to-day operations. Shortly thereafter, they were joined by their childhood friend, Howard Kurman. Little did they know what was to become of their modest, legal practice. In the 30 years since, Offit Kurman has developed into one of the region’s fastest-growing and most successful law firms, with over 120 attorneys in multiple locations across the Mid-Atlantic. Today, Offit Kurman is a full-service law firm with loyal clients across the entire nation. In this video, Offit Kurman’s founders discuss their humble beginnings, strong work ethics, and strategic vision for growth. They also share the values that unify their partnership and have led them to long-term success.
