Maryland attorney Jeff Scholnick has recently joined the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. As one of the few Spanish-speaking attorneys in the Baltimore Area, Mr. Scholnick is proud to be a member of the Hispanic Chamber.
“America is the land of opportunity. People from all over the world come to this great land to improve themselves and their families. My great grand parents came here from Russia. Now, it is with great pride, I can try to help others who have come to this country. The Latino market place is the fastest growing portion of the U.S. economy. We must embrace these changes and recognize the success of this new market.”
Mr. Scholnick has been practicing law since 1983 and opened his office in 1996. Mr. Scholnick handles a wide-range of cases, including Criminal Defense, Traffic Defense, DUI, Plaintiff’s Personal Injury, Serious Auto Accidents, Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, Bankruptcy and Business Litigation. Mr. Scholnick also works with small Latino businesses to help them with their legal needs.
The mission of the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is to promote the establishment, growth, prosperity and retention of Hispanic businesses, and those entities, and persons that support them in the State of Maryland.
While building business relationships in 1986, several dedicated Hispanic leaders realized the enormous potential of the Hispanic business community in the State of Maryland and envisioned the need for a state-wide organization to represent its interests before the public and private sectors. Later that year, the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (MDHCC) was incorporated in the state of Maryland, creating a structured organization aimed at developing a business network that would provide the Hispanic community with cohesion and strength. Since its inception, the MDHCC has worked towards bringing the issues and concerns of the state’s thousands of Hispanic-owned businesses to the forefront of the state’s economic agenda.
