Todd K. Pounds, Esq.

'Someday, I intend to write a book on some of my cases and experiences from the past 23 years at A&C. I've had the opportunity to work on all kinds of legal challenges — from courtrooms across Maryland to zoning, development and permit issues all over the state. Our clients appreciate our hard work and success.'
