  • FTA Amnesty Program Proves Successful

    I told you it wasn’t a sting! It was the county’s first Failure to Appear Warrant Amnesty Day and it was a huge success! I must give a big shout out to our partners. Without them, this would have never been a success. Let me recognize the public defender’s office, the States Attorney’s Office, the Division of Parole & Probation, the hardworking staff at the Annapolis District Court and, of course, your Sheriff’s Office.
    Just to recap, roughly 70 percent of all our warrants are for people who have been arrested for a crime but fail to appear (FTA) for their scheduled court date. When this occurs, the courts issue a second warrant for their absence in...

  • The Importance Of Leaving A Legacy

    One of the most difficult conversations that I have with clients is about death and what will happen after they die. Of course, we leave the philosophical part of that question to more learned and religious people, but someone like me can address the practical part.
    Planning for death, and the goals for the money thereafter, usually falls into one of two distinct strategies. One group of people wants the last check that they write to bounce, meaning that they do not want to leave any money to children, because they feel it is theirs to spend. Most parents who take this approach have successful children and are not worried about their future. The second group of people purposefully leaves...
