Attorney, Member, Owner
Sengstacke Law LLC
Diane Sengstacke considers it her greatest professional accomplishment to run and own her Bel Air, law firm, Sengstacke Law LLC, and Home Title Co. of Md. Inc.
“Operating two companies with all of the market swings, meeting payroll and rent, having employees, handling all of the details, handling settlements, helping all types of clients, is quite an accomplishment,” she wrote.
The mother of twins started her career in law as a legal secretary in 1978 and formed her law firm in 2001. Ten years before, she bought the Bel Air branch of a title company and forming Home Title Co. of Md., Inc., and began working as a solo practitioner focusing on real property law.
Sengstacke has served on the Judicial Nominating Commission for Harford County from 1994 to 2006 and from 2013 to present.
She said she is proud to have helped many honorable District and Circuit judges gain seats in Harford County over the years.
“I view this service of utmost importance and hold this position with honor,” she wrote.
Sengstacke is also a member of the Bel Air Rotary Club. Through the Rotary, Sengstacke worked with the Red Cross to raise $20,000 to support efforts following the Sept. 11 attacks and organized the Dictionary Project to distribute dictionaries to third graders in county schools.
She is a board member of Harford Community College Foundation and Welcome One Emergency Center and serves as vice president of Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra and financial officer of Upper Chesapeake Chorus. Sengstacke also sings with the chorus at various events throughout the region, including at Baltimore Orioles games.
Sengstacke, who is a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law and Towson University, is a 21-year member of the Chesapeake Professional Women’s Network and has served on the Fashion Show Committee for the past two years.
I’ve helped many judges, both on the District Court and Circuit Court, to be nominated and later appointed judges in Harford County. I view this service of utmost importance and hold this position with honor.”
