P. HONG LE, PRINCIPAL ATTORNEY
Hong was born and raised in Montgomery County, Maryland and graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in the Spring of 2002. After college, he became a background investigator, but the appeal of a challenging career in law spurred Hong to move to Baltimore to attend the University of Baltimore School of Law where he graduated with honors in the Spring of 2008.
While attending law school, Hong clerked for the Honorable H. Patrick Stringer, Jr. of the Circuit Court for Baltimore County. After graduating, he clerked at the Circuit Court for Baltimore City for the Honorable M. Brooke Murdock. His time in Baltimore City was spent in the Family Division of the Circuit Court. Serving as a judicial law clerk provided Hong with insight into the mechanics of the judicial system and the judges, administrators, and personnel that make up that branch of the government. It has also provided him with a unique, insider's perspective that many other attorneys do not possess.
After his clerkship ended in Baltimore City, Hong became an associate attorney with a firm in Howard County. There, he focused on Property Law matters and provided legal representation to homeowners associations and condominiums. He successfully litigated cases in both district and circuit courts throughout the State and achieved both monetary judgments as well as injunctive relief for his clients. Additionally, Hong provided clients with transactional services including: opinion and governing document drafting; contract drafting and review; and, the drafting and review of waivers, releases, and other legal documents.
After working as an associate attorney for a number of years, Hong decided that the best way to achieve his personal and professional goals and to represent his clients was to become a solo practitioner. He moved on to establish the Law Office of P. Hong Le, LLC.
Hong is active in several bar associations. He volunteers his time providing pro bono representation to low income clients through the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, tutoring elementary school students, and at pro bono events throughout the City. He is of Vietnamese descent. He resides in Baltimore City, in the eclectic neighborhood of Hampden. He enjoys sports, the arts, and music. He also likes spending time with his family and traveling.
