Alice G. Pinderhughes, P.A.

“I was raised to treat people with respect regardless of economic status, color, ethnicity or religion.”
– Alice G. Pinderhughes

For nearly 40 years, Alice G. Pinderhughes has represented individuals, families, small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, property owners, municipalities and churches.

Earning her Juris Doctor from Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law, Pinderhuges has worked as a judicial clerk for the Maryland Court of Special Appeals and Master for the Circuit Court of Baltimore City.

She has served as corporate chair of the Civil Service Commission, a board member for the Judicial Compensation Committee and chair of the Maryland Affordable Housing Trust. A former secretary of the Morgan State Foundation, she currently is on the Board of Trustees of Goucher College.

She also established a scholarship fund in honor of her late mother, Alice G. Pinderhughes, who was the first female and African American superintendent of the Baltimore City Public School System.

She says her greatest challenge “was leaving a job with stable pay and good benefits and starting my law firm when I was six months pregnant with two young children, ages 3 and 5. I was questioned by many regarding how I would accomplish this goal; however, 2 Corinthians 5:7 states, “We walk by faith, not by sight, which became my mantra,” she said.

“I faced many issues as to where I would obtain an office, how could I pay the rent and how I would be able to obtain clients. My walk-by-faith mantra proved to be the answer to my prayers as a former colleague and friend offered an office space until I could assist with the rent. I began teaching at a local law school and junior college to cover my expenses. Without my faith, prayer, and loved ones I would not be where I am today.”

She explained her legacy as based on a  favorite quote by Maya Angelou: “I’ve learned people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
