Gov. Larry Hogan has appointed two attorneys to join the bench in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
C. Carey Deeley Jr. and Dennis M. Robinson Jr. have "a wealth of legal knowledge and experience" that prepares them well to be judges, Hogan said in a statement Wednesday.
Deeley is a partner at the Venable law firm, where he has practiced since 1989. Before that, he practiced at Cook, Howard, Downes & Tracy and clerked for a Baltimore County CIrcuit Court judge.
Deeley's specialties are commercial, product liability and personal injury litigation. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia and the University of Baltimore School of Law.
Robinson is a partner at Whiteford, Taylor and Preston, where he has practiced since 2006. He also practiced at the Baltimore office of Hogan & Hartson.
Robinson specializes in product liability and business litigation. He is a graduate of Towson University and the University of Baltimore School of Law.
Deeley and Robinson were recommended by the Judicial Nominating Commission for Baltimore County. They will fill two new judgeships created this year by the Maryland General Assembly.
They will be sworn in within the next 30 days.
