Attorney Bio

Bartlett Jones is the principal attorney in The Bartlett Law Firm, APLC.

Family is obvious important  to Bartlett Jones. One only has to glance at the many photographs in his office of his children and wife. One photo in particular stood out of his three young daughters dresses in princess clothes twirling about in a lush garden setting. Each child individually glowed in a different colored pastel glittered skirt with silver glittered foil peplum and pull sleeves. They each wore a different head dress: a tiara, a crown, and a cone hat. Long white gloves, satin slippers, and of course, “magic” wands were all part of the accessories. The green grass set off the stunning flowers and three little girls dancing and twirling about in a faery type setting. It captured a truly magical moment.  I think this photograph signified something special about Bartlett Jones as a father and a man, and as a lawyer. And if you are aware of advocacy as a measure of social contributions, you might run into the myriad instances where he’s taken a stand. For example, my Baltimore movers is a family owned business that advocates for many of the social changes that Jones inspired. Their policies include anti-discrimination clauses that stand out among the many moving companies servicing this market.
