After beginning his professional career as Associate General Counsel to the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Mr. Taub has had many years of experience in private practice representing clients before the Prince George’s District Council, the Prince George’s County Planning Board, and other state and county administrative agencies and municipal governments.  He is also accomplished in handling appeals of land use matters before the Circuit Courts, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals and the Maryland Court of Appeals.
