Over 2000+ Satisfied Clients

Client Testimonial

I was involved in a motorcycle collision in 2013, it required a year of physical therapy, and 38 days in the hospital. Tucker Clagett worked with my wife and I while managing all legal affairs for us. I had to only focus on my recover while he and his staff handled all other aspects of the claim process. Professional and fair in all aspects.

Why Choose Southern Maryland Law?

We are your community law firm

We have been a vibrant part of the Southern Maryland community for over 55 years. And we believe in community service. Our community has been very good to us, and we try to repay that kindness. We believe giving back to our community is an important part of our job.

One of the oldest law firms here

We are the second oldest law firm in Southern Maryland, serving clients for over 55 years. Thousands of your neighbors have trusted us to be their legal counsel. That’s because we get results, and we treat our clients right. We would never have lasted this long if we did not.

Large enough, yet small enough

We are large enough to provide full service, but small enough to focus on you. Some of the larger firms that opened satellite offices in Waldorf have dozens of attorneys, and even more support staff to handle their clients. At Southern Maryland Law you will be a name – not a number.

Not your grandfather's lawyer

While our firm has been around a long time, we are not what you think lawyers are like. We pride ourselves on being a little more approachable, a little more casual, and a little more likeable than the average lawyer. We are real people with real solutions to your real problems.
