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.

Client Testimonial

My consultation with D'Erra Jackson was excellent and very professional. I felt that she was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. She prepared me for what to expect and did not sugar coat the truth without being crass or offensive. She also took the time to give me options on what I should try to make sure I received a fair deal. With her preparation, we were able to work out an agreement that works for my situation. Thank you!

Client Testimonial

Several years ago, I used this law firm to help me write a will after my divorce. This year, I went to them again, this time with a renter dispute. I was very surprised when I found out that the consultation was free because I was a former client. Plus, I still received the same excellent service and legal help that I needed. I will definitely continue to use Southern Maryland Law for all of my legal needs.

Why Choose Southern Maryland Law?

Southern Maryland Law Firm.

We are your community law firm

We have been a vibrant part of Waldorf for over 60 years. Waldorf has been very good to us, and we try to repay that kindness with community service. We believe giving back to our Waldorf community is part of our job.

The senior law firm in Waldorf

We are the oldest law firm in Waldorf, and the 2nd oldest in all of Southern Maryland! We have stayed busy because we get results and treat our clients right. We would never have lasted this long if we did not.

Southern Maryland Law Contact Details.

Large enough, yet small enough

We are large enough to provide full service, but small enough to focus on you. The large firms that have satellite offices in Waldorf have dozens of attorneys who don’t live here. They use case managers to handle their clients. At Southern Maryland Law, you will be a name – not a number.

Beautiful landscape with sunset.

Not your grandfather’s law firm

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.
