Stein Sperling Bennett De Jong Driscoll PC is a law firm in Montgomery County, Maryland. The firm currently employs 43 attorneys and offers legal services in multiple practice areas including business law, civil litigation, criminal law, employment law, estates and trusts, family law, injury law, municipal law, real estate law and tax law. In 2007, Stein Sperling began purchasing wind-generated power for a portion of the electricity use in its office in Rockville, MD, and became the first Maryland-based law firm to join the Green Power Partnership. Stein Sperling's switch to green power for its Rockville office will avoid approximately 287 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, which is equivalent to taking over 52 cars off the road for one year. "It was an easy decision," said Millard S. Bennett, co-founder and managing principal of Stein Sperling. "We take very seriously the protection of our community and environment. The opportunity to become an environmental leader was a no-brainer. We encourage others to follow our lead."
