(Attorneys Megan E. Easter and Joseph L. Kroart III added as associates at Adelberg, Rudow, Dorf & Hendler, LLC.)
Adelberg Rudow has added two new attorneys as the firm continues to expand its estates and trusts and business law services.
“The firm is pleased to bring on Ms. Easter and Mr. Kroart as associates,” said Oren D. Saltzman, managing member of Adelberg Rudow, Dorf & Hendler, LLC. “These are both rising professionals who have promising legal careers ahead of them. Their presence will be a great benefit both to our clients and the rest of our team.”
Each attorney comes to the firm through unique pathways into the practice of law.
Megan E. Easter began at Adelberg Rudow in 2013 as a paralegal in the estates and trusts department prior to attending the University of Baltimore School of Law. Easter was admitted to the Bar of Maryland in June of 2018 and has now been made an associate with the firm.
Easter will primarily focus on estates and trusts while also supporting clients in the general corporate and business practices. Prior to receiving her J.D. from the University of Baltimore, Easter received her B.A. in Economics from Washington College in 2011. Originally from California, Easter was born and raised in La Jolla. Easter’s professional and civic involvement includes membership in the Maryland State Bar Association (Section of Young Lawyers) and membership in the Maryland Association for Justice.
“Working as a paralegal for Adelberg Rudow inspired me to pursue a career as an attorney,” said Easton. “I am grateful for the opportunity to begin the next chapter in my career as an associate here at the place where that vision was created.”
Joseph L. Kroart III joined Adelberg Rudow in 2018 as an associate in the business and corporate practice.
Prior to practicing law, Kroart spent years running his family’s multi-store retail operation in Ocean City, Maryland and southern Delaware, a background that gives him a rare combination of business experience alongside formalized legal training.
Kroart graduated in 2014 with a joint J.D./M.B.A. degree from the University of Maryland Carey School of Law and the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School. He also holds an M.A. in organizational sociology from the University of Maryland College Park, as well as a B.A. in
history and sociology from Villanova University. Kroart joined the Maryland Bar in 2015, and his professional and civic involvement includes membership in the Young Lawyers Section of the Maryland State Bar Association and membership in the Baltimore County Bar Association.
“Adelberg Rudow embodies the approach to client service and teamwork that is required for successful businesses,” said Kroart. “Having worked in a family business and understanding the importance of that value, it was a perfect fit for me.”
