The event will be a presentation targeted towards new practitioners entitled Anatomy of a Family Law Case: Process, Planning & Resources, to be presented by Lindsay Parvis, Anne Grover, and Chris Roberts.

Judge Dwyer began her impressive legal career as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation before joining the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office where she served for 14 years.  In 2002, Judge Dwyer then accepted a position in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Baltimore where she served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, and Deputy Chief of the Organized Crime and Gang Section at the U.S. Department of Justice. Judge Dwyer has been a Judge on the Circuit Court bench since November 17, 2016, and is currently in the Family Law rotation.   
Please join us on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 at 12:30 pm for a brown-bag lunch in Conference Room 4600 (South Tower 4th Floor). This is an excellent opportunity to get to know one of the newer members of our Circuit Court bench in this informal setting, and to benefit from Judge Dwyer's particular insight in how to refine your trial advocacy skills. The Chamber Chat is open to all members of the Bar.
