TOWSON - Former County Circuit Judge Donald J. Gilmore will join the law firm of Parks, Hansen & Ditch and head its planned new office in Carroll.
Gilmore recently retired from the bench after serving 13 years, 11 of those as administrative judge. In that capacity, he was responsible for the scheduling of cases and directing the physical and budgetary operation of the court.
He also oversaw the restoration and rededication of the Carroll County Courthouse.
Parks, Hansen & Ditch, headquartered in Towson, Baltimore County, is a nationally known firm that engages in general civil practice, including litigation, corporate, estate planning and administration, family law, real estate and development, and commercial and banking law.
"I considered a number of options when I retired from the bench and found Parks, Hansen & Ditch's plans to expand into Carroll County to be an exciting opportunity," Gilmore said.
"I have a keen interest in the well-being of this county and look forward to continuing my service to the Carroll County community in this new capacity."
