The Courts and
Judicial Affairs Division are the attorneys for the Judicial Branch of State
government. As such, we are counsel to the judges of the Court of Appeals, the
Court of Special Appeals, the Circuit Courts, the District Court, and the
Orphans' Courts. We also represent and advise the clerks of each court
(including the Clerks of the Circuit Courts for each county) and the Registers
of Wills for each county.
The Division also
represents court-related agencies, such as the Administrative Office of the
Courts, the Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure, the
Commission on Judicial Disabilities, the Attorney Grievance Commission of
Maryland, the Client Protection Fund, the State Board of Law Examiners, the
Maryland Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO), and the Maryland
State Law Library.
In addition, the
Division represents select independent agencies, such as the Maryland Tax Court
and the Office of Administrative Hearings.
