Congratulations to Kevin G. Hessler on his Recent Appointment to Associate Judge of the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland

The partners, associates, and staff at Dragga, Hannon & Wills, LLP, wish to extend a heartfelt and sincere congratulations to Kevin G. Hessler, Esquire, on his recent appointment to serve as an Associate Judge of the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland.  Kevin, who joined the firm as a partner in 1999, and who practiced law in Montgomery County for 35 years, was an instrumental part of the firm’s growth and success and will be sorely missed by his colleagues.  His selflessness, kind nature, patient disposition, intellect, and wit, which endeared him to colleagues and adversaries alike, will no doubt be valued by the attorneys and citizens who will appear before him as an Associate Judge.  The firm’s loss is the community’s gain.  Please join us in congratulating Kevin on his latest, but surely not last, achievement in the legal realm.
