I am the only candidate with years of real judicial experience. During my time as a judge, I'm proud of the reputation that I developed for being fair, efficient, well-prepared for court and courteous to all litigants.
When announcing my appointment, Governor Hogan said that "I have confidence that Mr. Titus will be a strong advocate for the law and will serve the citizens of Carroll County admirably." I do not take this trust in me for granted and remain focused on providing our citizens with good "customer service" by issuing prompt, carefully thought out decisions to all litigants who appear in my courtroom.
Upon my graduation from the University of Baltimore Law School in 1990, I was immediately admitted to the bar and began the first of my two judicial clerkships. I am a lifelong Marylander and have resided in Carroll County since 1992. In 1994, I began the general practice of law with a small firm on Main Street in Westminster. I remained with that firm for more than two decades until my appointment to the Court required me to give up my successful law practice.
I have been a member of the Carroll County Bar Association since 1995 serving on its Public Records Committee, Education Committee and chairing its Technology Committee since 2011. I have also previously served on the Technology Committee of the Maryland Judicial Conference.
I am proud to be entering my third year as a volunteer judge for the Carroll County High School Mock Trial competition.
