The Story of a Southern Maryland Firm.

A lot has changed since Bryan Dugan and Bill McKissick, Jr. opened their Lexington Park law practice on April Fool’s Day, 1994.

Bill jokes that if the firm ever failed, they could say it was all just an April Fool’s joke.

Bryan, a family law and litigation attorney, and Bill, a real estate and business law attorney, had both left a previous firm in hopes of building a practice in Southern Maryland.

The team’s expertise with transactional law and a period of rapidly increasing real estate activity positioned the firm to thrive in the region. With the addition of litigation attorney and fellow St. Mary’s county local Chris Longmore in 2000, the three partners pooled their legal expertise to form Dugan, McKissick, and Longmore, LLC. In 2021, Rebekka J. Hutchins and Samuel Wiest became partners to create a well-rounded law firm and the largest in Southern Maryland. Dugan, McKissick & Longmore, LLC is now the largest full-service law firm in St. Mary’s County.

In 2015, the partners created the in-house title company Blue Crab Title & Escrow, LLC, which conducts hundreds of residential and commercial closings each year.

Over the years, Bill, Chris, Rebekka, and Sam have given back to the community that supports their business. Dugan, McKissick & Longmore, LLC has partnered with several local non-profits to provide pro bono legal services and supports numerous community organizations.  These organizations include St. Mary’s County Chamber of Commerce, Hospice of St. Mary’s County, Christmas in April, a variety of churches, volunteer rescue squads, and other non-profits.

The four partners and the entire DML team are committed to providing experienced and professional legal counsel to Southern Maryland businesses and residents. Our quality of service is well-known in Southern Maryland. So let our team take care of all your legal needs.

Rebekka Hutchins has been my lawyer for 4 years now. She has been nothing short of amazing helping me with my child custody case! Even after my case was settled & closed she has always been available if I ever have any custody issues/questions. She fights for what is right for her clients & listens to every concern you have . Going through a custody battle was one of my most vulnerable moments in life but her reassurance & explanation of things throughout the legal process really eased my mind! I will always recommend her to anyone who is looking !
Rebekka Hutchins has been my lawyer for 2 years now and I HIGHLY recommend her. She has been nothing short of amazing helping me with my divorce and child custody case. She listens to everything you want and need and helps navigate through a world that most people don’t plan to go down.

Met w/ two SoMD divorce attorneys prior to meeting with Bryan, both fell well short of my expectations. I figured I would try one more in SoMD before going outside the county and Bryan more than met my expectations. He clearly had all the experience I needed and a common sense approach to a complex situation. He gave me sage advice. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I used Dugan, McKissick, & Longmore a little while back. I worked directly with Mr. Dugan and he was fantastic and terrific as well as also fair with pricing. While I live in VA, I had a matter that involved Southern Maryland (St. Mary's County). I chose to go with them as their name was familiar to me when I lived in MD; driving past their place daily. Very nice staff and friendly people. Overall great experience and I would highly recommend them for your needs.

I would recommend working with this firm to anyone. Rebekka Hutchins went above and beyond to make sure my case was taken care of the proper way from the start. They are a first class firm and take care of their clients the same way.

Highly competent, professional, multi-service law firm.
We've been using these guys for around 20 years. Always helpful, and they get the job done whether it's real estate related or other legal business guidance.

This is the only place I'll go. They have never steered me wrong on any of my legal needs and are very responsive.
I really don't have the words to describe how appreciative I am of the work done by this firm. And if I found those words, this review would take a month to write. I've had a 10 year nightmare put to rest with their help. I had an overwhelmingly positive experience from everyone I dealt with from this firm, including those who had no direct involvement with my case.I have dealt with other firms and lawyers whilst dealing with this very difficult and extremely stressful case. None can compare to Bryan Dugan. Bryan did not need to take my case but jumped right in when no one else could or would, and he did it with me going through unusual and difficult circumstances with a tight deadline. A huge weight was immediately taken off my shoulders. He fought on my side for almost a year to get my case into court where he was an absolute superstar through a three day trial where I got a result, that after ten years of getting kicked and beat by a system I was now terrified of, I finally got a result I knew was right and just, but never thought I would ever get.I truly could not have been represented better. I once again cannot truly express my gratitude to Bryan for helping me finally fight back. I finally had my voice heard and my point of view seen and was able to get the just outcome for my family I had been fighting for for more than a decade.I am disappointed I only have 5 stars to give.

First, I want to make it clear I rarely write reviews but with my experience with this law firm I had to share my experience. I want to thank Rebekka publicly for the amazing work she did on my case. She definitely went above and beyond IMO and made me feel as if I was her only client. She’s responsive to any questions you’ll have, and if she’s handling another case she will respond back quickly. Granted she’s not cheap BUT she’s worth every penny! I will not hesitate to seek her assistance in the future.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Rebekka for bringing closure to my 2+ year nightmare. Not only was she a great attorney but an even better human being. She worked extremely hard and was able to turn what I expected to be a total loss into a positive outcome. I would highly recommend her services!
Just had my first conversation with Mr. Longmore. He was very professional, gave clear and concise information about the process of moving forward with a legal claim, and there was no pressure whatsoever to make an immediate decision. He was an absolute pleasure to speak with. If I ever choose to pursue a claim, I will definitely contact him for representation.

I want to thank Rebekka for helping me on 2 different occasions. She went above and beyond to help me with my custody case. My previous lawyer was not willing to do half the things Rebekka did when I hired her. With her help, I was able to get everything I asked for and more. I really appreciate everything she has done for me and my family and if I ever need an attorney in the future I know I can count on this lawfirm.
I highly recommend Rebekka Hutchins! She was amazing with me through the difficult time of my divorce! She was with me every step of the way and she responded right away to any questions I had!! She seriously is one of the best! Thank you so much Rebekka for all that you have done for me!!

Bryan Dugan is an amazing lawyer with an outstanding team of legal professionals. They successfully navigated my difficult legal situation with ease while providing sound, accurate, and useful insight and advice. Just one person’s opinion, but Dugan and his legal team are by far the best in Southern Maryland, and they are worth every penny.

Recently I was represented by Rick Gross for a traffic violation and he walked me through the court process and the outcome was I received no points and I am very grateful for his help and I had a great experience through the firm and would recommend it to anyone.
Rebekka Hutchins is one of the lawyers/attorneys here and she is absolutely amazing! Not only is she a good person at heart, but she won’t stop fighting for you, and will tell you the truth. Absolutely adore her.
