Wise & Blitzer was founded on a simple idea – provide aggressive, technology driven, cost effective, and personalized legal services and solutions to clients on the Eastern Shore and throughout Maryland.
Advances in technology have caused major disruption in many industries, and the legal field is no different. Many web-based platforms and large urban firms are using new technologies to enhance and streamline the delivery of legal services. After several years of practice in small firms located outside the city limits, we noticed that many local firms simply were not adapting to this new, fast changing and tech based legal landscape. We started Wise & Blitzer to bring our clients the high-quality streamlined services of a larger firm and the cost-effective solutions of a web-based platform, in the comfortable and relationship-based setting of a small local firm.
