Montgomery County’s Attorney Marc Hansen Retiring After 37 Years

Marc Hansen, who served 37 years in the Montgomery County Attorney’s Office and as the county’s Attorney for 12, is set to retire on Jan. 31.

Beginning his career as an assistant county attorney, Hansen has been the longest serving County Attorney in Montgomery County history.

“Being a lawyer for the County has given me the opportunity to work on many immensely challenging legal issues—many of them cutting edge legal issues,” Hansen said. “But what I will treasure most has been the opportunity to work with, and to get to know, so many extraordinarily talented and dedicated public servants—merit employees, appointed officials and elected officials.”

Hansen received the highest award presented by the International Municipal Lawyers Association—the Charles S. Rhyne Lifetime Achievement in Municipal Law Award in 2014. Recipients of this award are recognized for truly outstanding public service and municipal law achievements, and have gone significantly beyond the call of duty.

County Executive Marc Elrich has named Deputy County Attorney John Markovs as the Acting County Attorney. Serving the county since 2007, Markovs has served as the County’s lead attorney on major litigation cases, real estate development, and construction matters.
