Why Choose Dorchester?
"Our Dorchester County community has an amazing mix of past and present. It’s both old fashioned rooted in traditional values, yet "up-and-coming" with an exciting revitalization underway. You can’t beat the natural beauty or historical feel of downtown Cambridge. There’s nowhere else like it. It’s a great place to put down roots and practice law."
"Dorchester is home. I returned after college and dove into our family business. There is an authentic sense of community here - a general "get the job done" attitude. Combined with the natural balance of four distinct seasons, access to the Choptank River and waterways, and more seafood, farms and wildlife than you can shake a stick at, I'd say it's a pretty great place to live."
"Being in a central location really helps us and the access to the water, waterways and the bay for recreation is a big asset to living in Dorchester."
"The people in Dorchester County are amazing and Cambridge is special because of the location. Obviously it’s gorgeous, we’re right on the water."
"After opening the Eastern Shore Dance Academy, I have met the most amazing children and families. Our community has so much talent."
"Dorchester provides the close community feeling that small businesses thrive. Our county has so many driven people with incredible ideas and resources. Collaborating on a creative level and the friendships I’ve made makes this more than a "job" for me."
"One of the things I love about living and working here is the amazing energy. There are a lot of great things happening simultaneously right now and I’m constantly meeting new people who are excited to be engaged and involved. It’s a great feeling to watch and be part of the progress unfolding in my hometown."
"I would not want to be anywhere else in the world, or doing anything else than what I am doing today."
"I enjoy working in Dorchester because there are an increasing number of millennials relocating, building lives and thriving here. There is a great deal of potential to reach your professional and personal goals, live the dream and leave your mark."
"As someone who was raised in Dorchester – and spent my career working internationally - I wouldn’t want to live nor work anywhere else. From our beautiful landscapes and outdoor recreation to our close-knit community and proximity to major cities, Dorchester is a great place to raise a family and enjoy an Eastern Shore lifestyle."
