Paley Rothman’s Patricia Weaver Receives BAMC Professionalism Award

Trish Weaver, Professionalism Award Winner

BETHESDA, MD — Patricia Weaver recently received the 2013 “Professionalism Award” from the Bar Association of Montgomery County (BAMC) in recognition of her exemplary conduct, long-standing service and extraordinary accomplishments in the legal profession. Ms. Weaver is a former BAMC president who previously served in the same capacity with the Montgomery County Bar Association and the Montgomery County Women’s Bar Association.

The award is given annually to the BAMC member who has made a significant contribution to the altruistic goals of the profession, whose professional courtesy and integrity are without question—and who has constantly upheld the highest standards. Ms. Weaver is the second Paley Rothman attorney to be selected for this prestigious honor; Linda Schwartz is a previous recipient of the Professionalism Award.

“We are extremely proud of Trish and everything she has done for the firm, the Bar Association, the legal profession in which she works and the community in which she lives,” said Paley Rothman Co-President James Hammerschmidt. “Her professional accomplishments are widely acknowledged, but her selfless support of the soup kitchen at Shepherd’s Table and other local groups reflects her never-ending compassion for those in need. She is a special person, one I’m proud to call a colleague and a friend.”

Ms. Weaver, of Bethesda, Md., is chair of Paley Rothman’s Appellate practice group and a member of its Alternative Dispute Resolution and Litigation groups. She graduated in the top 10% of her class from the University of Maryland School of Law after receiving her B.A. Magna Cum Laude at Maryland.

Paley Rothman, a full-service law firm in the Washington area for more than 40 years, provides legal counsel to corporate and individual clients in a wide range of practice areas. It maintains a business orientation, but handles tax, real estate, employment law, estate planning, litigation and a variety of other matters for businesses and professionals in Montgomery County and throughout the Washington metropolitan area.
