The Bel Air-based law firm Shaffer, McLauchlin & Stover, LLC has expanded its practice to the Eastern Shore. On Wednesday, September 23, the firm will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new office located at 9921 Stephen Decatur Highway in Ocean City, Maryland. The new Eastern Shore location has been a goal of the firm since its inception in 2011.
According to Gina Shaffer, a partner in the firm, “When you examine demographic data of households in Harford County, there is a trend for many older area residents to retire in the greater Ocean City area. Our new office gives those clients access to our firm’s experience in both elder law and real estate law.” Law partner Eric McLauchlin also notes that many of the firm’s business clients from the Bel Air region own vacation or investment properties on the Eastern Shore.
Shaffer adds, “I own a home in Fenwick Island and Eric hails from the Eastern Shore, so we are also both very familiar with the area.” McLauchlin is looking forward to returning to spend more time closer to his alma mater, Salisbury University.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 4:00 p.m. on September 23 at the new office, with a reception to follow at 5:00 p.m. at the Sunset Grille, located in the Sunset Marina at 12933 Sunset Avenue, West Ocean City. Anyone planning on attending is asked to RSVP to Kim Perkins at 410.420.7992 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, September 21.
