DENTON -- The Caroline County Chamber of Commerce welcomed back a familiar face Nov. 15, with a ribbon-cutting officially opening Funk & Bolton's new office in Denton.
The office, at 300 Market St., Suite 104, is the same office occupied by the law firm the last time it had a branch in Caroline County.
The Denton office joins the law firm's other locations in Annapolis, Baltimore and Chestertown, and will offer law services relating to real estate transactions, estates and trusts and family law.
Chip MacLeod, a partner with the firm, said the firm sees a lot of opportunity in Caroline County.
“I think Walmart (in Denton) will spurn more activity,” MacLeod said.
The law firm used to provide attorney services to the Caroline County government, until the county decided to hire an in-house attorney, MacLeod said, which is when Funk & Bolton closed its Denton office the first time.
The Denton office's main focus will be real estate transactions. Sandy Hayman, a settlement agent, said she will be conducting closings.
“We wanted to be a part of downtown Denton,” Hayman said of the firm's choice to reopen in its previous location. “It's convenient for the legal community, being so close to the courthouse, and it helps with the revitalization of the downtown area.”
