Nicole M. Davis, Legal Assistant
Nicole M. Davis joined our law firm in September 2015. She was born and raised in South Carolina, then moved to Maryland after graduating from high school in 2005. Nicole studied art education at Montgomery College before taking some time to raise her three children. Before joining our law firm, Nicole worked in international sales for a diamond retailer, where she juggled managing another employee, answering the telephone, and maintaining real-time online messaging conversations with up to six international clients at the same time. Before that, she worked in security and in clothing retail. Nicole is also an expert self taught baker who enjoys making custom ordered cakes and cupcakes. In her short time at the law firm, Nicole has learned and completed tasks that usually take others significantly longer to master. Her varied work and life experience, combined with her kind demeanor and keen perception, make Nicole a wonderful asset to help us serve our clients effectively. Nicole and her husband, Steven, welcomed their fourth child on 27 October 2017.
Margaret H. McRory, Courthouse Clerk
Peg grew up in New Jersey and studied chemistry at Radcliffe College, the (then) all-female college affiliated with Harvard University. In 1941, she married George W. McRory, Jr., an officer in the US Army Air Corps (which became the US Air Force); their family grew to include three daughters, of whom Camilla is the youngest. Peg became a lobbyist for moderate and low income housing in Montgomery County, served as Administrative Aide to Councilwoman Elizabeth “Betty” Lee Scull, was hired as Housing Consultant by the County Council, and then spent three years working for the Community Ministry of Montgomery County (now InterfaithWorks), an organization dedicated to serving the poor in Montgomery County. Peg first became involved with our law firm by working as Courthouse Clerk, helped to conduct interviews with prospective coworkers, and always provided her perceptive guidance on the needs of our clients. She good-naturedly described her role with the firm as the “example” of the ever-changing needs of the elderly. We at the law firm thought of her as our official WOW: wise older woman. Unfortunately for the law firm and all others who had the honor of knowing Peg, she died on 03 November 2010 of acute myeloid leukemia as a result of chemotherapy she received more than twenty years earlier. Until a few hours before she died, Peg lived to the fullest and was an inspiring example to all who knew her.
