Herbert Burgunder III

Mr. Burgunder is the principal of the firm. He is a 1994 graduate of the University of Baltimore Law School and a 1991 graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Government.

Prior to starting his own firm, Mr. Burgunder regulated charitable organizations for the State of Maryland and promoted business development in Maryland in the Department of Business and Economic Development.

Throughout his years of practicing, Mr. Burgunder has developed a keen eye for direct communication and smooth transactions. His clients can count on him to keep their best interests in mind. Simple documents and straightforward language are his hallmarks. A real estate purchase might be accomplished with a two-page contract. A zoning memorandum of law will speak directly to the issues before the board or zoning commissioner.

In addition to practicing, Mr. Burgunder has taught at the University of Maryland Law School as an adjunct faculty member in the Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research program. These courses focused on legal writing for trial and appeals.

He is the co-author of two MICPEL (continuing education books for lawyers) publications: Residential Real Estate Transactions, Chapter 6 - Pre-Closing Problems and Practice Manual for the Maryland Lawyer, Chapter 12 - Real Estate Transactions in Maryland. He is also the author of Effective Legal Writing, Maryland Bar Journal, Volume XXXII, November/December 1999; and the author of Effective Legal Writing: Preserving the Power of "Shall," The Advocate, Volume 16, Number 2, Winter 2001.
