Chart a course for your future at a firm that values excellence, entrepreneurship, collegiality, diversity, and inclusion.

We enjoy an exciting practice driven by providing superior service to our clients while preserving the informality, collegiality, and entrepreneurial spirit that are often suppressed in larger firms.

We seek to hire lawyers and staff who share our commitment to hard work, who have unique ideas, and who want to control their own careers and maintain lifestyles of their own choosing. We hire entry-level associates from our summer associate program, federal judicial clerkships, and directly out of law school.

In addition to hiring summer associates, B&D also hires lateral attorneys for associate, of counsel, and principal positions. We also encourage qualified attorneys to contact the hiring principal in their area.


The National Association for Law Placement, Inc. (NALP) serves as the premier source of information for legal career planning and recruitment. B&D's 2019-2020 NALP Form provides job seekers with basic information about our firm and hiring practices.

“The reason I have been with B&D for 20 years is because there is no place else I would rather be. Why would I leave a firm that is so concerned and caring about each and every employee? The goal of B&D’s leadership is for each of us to succeed, and they believe in total client satisfaction. The lawyers strive to be their very best, which motivates staff to do the same.”

Vanessa Smith, Legal Administrative Assistant, New York

"Having worked at B&D for 20 years, I am grateful to enjoy such a warm and nurturing environment. Camaraderie and flexibility at all levels are an added plus."

Debbie Melnyk, Regional Office Administrator, Baltimore

"I appreciate working at B&D because it has made a significant investment in my professional development. The firm has provided me the support and latitude I need to grow professional relationships and fulfill leadership positions in professional organizations. This has allowed me to develop clients and grow my own practice."

Julius Redd, Principal, Washington, DC
