A Short Period Of Retirement

The Daily Record has an announcement

After a little over a month of retirement, former Maryland Bar Counsel Glenn M. Grossman has found new employment, this time helping attorneys navigate the grievance process. Grossman will became of counsel at Eccleston and Wolf P.C. in Hanover on Monday and handle ethics and Attorney Grievance Commission matters.

Longtime Deputy Bar Counsel Raymond Hein is serving as Acting Bar Counsel pending the appointment of Mr. Grossman's successor.

Maryland is a place that has demonstrated a great deal of stability with only either  Mel Hirschman and Glenn serving as Bar Counsel for the past 36 years.

Mel was in the position when I started in February 1984.

He became one of my favorite National Organization of Bar Counsel colleagues and we worked closely together because of the large number of attorneys over whom D.C. and Maryland share disciplinary jurisdiction.

I actually have been watching with interest the process of selecting the next Maryland Bar Counsel and may blog on the subject in the near future. Forewarned is forearmed. 

Every time a new chief disciplinary counsel is selected in a jurisdiction, the soul and conscience of the legal profession there is at stake and at risk.

Note that the District of Columbia  is similarly situated, although there have been seven different Bar (now Disciplinary) Counsel over that same 36 year period of time.  (Mike Frisch)
