Alumni | About | Venable LLP


Venable’s alumni include current and former U.S. senators, congressmen, cabinet members, federal and state judges, and state attorneys general, among other business and civic leaders.

For more than 100 years, Venable has grown and prospered because of the tremendous contributions of the many professionals who have passed through our doors. We are proud of our numerous accomplished alumni, and we are grateful that they choose to stay in contact with us after they leave.

The success of our firm is directly attributable to the quality of relationships that we have built over the years.
