Big Enough to Provide Full Service. Small Enough to Focus on You.
More Attorneys = More Capabilities
We are one of the oldest and largest law firms in Southern Maryland – serving clients for 50 years. This means many people have trusted us to be their lawyer over the years. That is because we get results. You can be sure we know how to help our clients.
We have more attorneys and a larger staff than other local law firms. That means we can help you and your family in a wider variety of legal matters. From personal injury to bankruptcy, criminal law to family law, we have lawyers who handle the most common legal problems people will face in their lives. Each attorney concentrates in a few key areas so you can be assured of the expertise you need.
But we are not so big that we forget about personal service. In our communities of Waldorf, Maryland & Lexington Park, Maryland, personal service from your lawyer is still expected. Your legal matter is unique, and requires a personalized approach. We will always remember that.

Your Primary Care Attorney
We are like your family doctor, but for legal problems. While we have more lawyers than most Southern Maryland law firms, each one practices in a particular area. This allows us to “treat” the most common legal problems you and your family will encounter.
We handle these cases: personal injury, car accidents, bankruptcy, foreclosures, criminal defense, DUI, DWI, juvenile crimes, family law, divorce, child custody, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, real estate law, land use, zoning, administrative law, corporate law for small businesses, contracts, civil litigation, and wills, trust, and estates.
If you need more specialized help, we have a network of lawyers throughout Maryland we know and trust, and we will gladly refer you to them if that is in your best interests. Call us first for any legal problems you encounter. If we can’t help you, we will find you someone who can. Contact us if you need a lawyer.
Consider us your Primary Care Attorney!
We are a Different Kind of Law Firm
Why are we “different?” You will find we have a more relaxed personality than you may expect. We retain the personality and vision of our founders – a friendly, honest group of lawyers serving the community with high quality legal work and great customer service. We tend to be a little more easy going and friendly – not exactly qualities most lawyers are known for.
Let’s be honest – lawyers as a group tend to be stuffy and boring. Not us! We actually like our clients, and we genuinely want to help you solve the legal problems you are facing.
There is no reason a lawyer has to be lifeless and dull. In fact, having a personality makes us more effective. Wouldn’t you rather reach a settlement with someone who has a good personality? Don’t you think the same thing applies to judges, prosecutors, insurance adjusters, and even other lawyers?
Our lawyers have been serving clients here for 50 years. The law firm was founded in 1964 by George Andrews & Bob Schick. These founding lawyers quickly gained a reputation for quality and service. The law firm was built on real estate in those early days, but quickly expanded into other general practice areas.
We were in on the “ground floor” of the explosive growth of Waldorf, Maryland, and we have grown right along with it. Waldorf is the largest community in Charles County, Maryland. It is also the largest community in all of Southern Maryland. Being located in Waldorf puts us at the heart of Charles County, and the heart of the greater Southern Maryland community.
We also got in on the ground floor of growth in Lexington Park, Maryland. Lexington Park is quickly becoming the largest community in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. And we are right in the heart of it too.
As Waldorf, Maryland and Lexington Park, Maryland have grown – we have grown. Over the past 50 years we have been steadily adding more lawyers and more practice areas to better serve our clients here in Southern Maryland.
Serving Our Community
As part of our commitment to service, the attorneys and staff of Andrews, Bongar, Gormley & Clagett have always been actively involved in bettering our community here in Waldorf, Lexington Park, and all of Southern Maryland. We actually believe giving back to the community is a very important part of our job. For more on our service in the community, visit our Community Service Page.
