Notarization of Documents

Effective March 30, 2020, Governor Hogan signed an Emergency Order authorizing remote notarizations through the duration of the COVID-19 emergency. While in-person notarization is not required during this specific timeframe, all other requirements for performing notarial acts are in full force and effect. Our team is available to assist our customers in signing documents that require a notarial seal (such as deeds, general durable power of attorneys and trusts). If you need assistance with a document that requires a Notary Public, please call us at 443-921- 4217 or send us an email at We are happy to assist.
