Meet Judge Titus  

Governor Larry Hogan appointed Judge Titus to the Circuit Court bench on January 27, 2016.   The appointment followed a comprehensive and extensive screening process of nine applicants by various statewide Bar Associations, the Carroll County Bar Association and the  Carroll County Trial Courts Nominating Commission.  After investigating and interviewing all applicants, the Nominating Commission submitted a list of the four recommended and qualified candidates (two women and two men) to the Governor.     

Following personal meetings with each applicant, Governor Hogan chose Judge Titus for appointment to the Circuit Court for Carroll County.  In announcing Titus as his choice, Governor Hogan noted that his “decades of legal experience in Carroll County have prepared him well for this appointment and I offer my sincere congratulations.” 

A lifelong Maryland resident, Judge Titus was admitted to the Bar following his graduation from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1990.  After two judicial clerkships, he began the practice of law with a small firm on Main Street in Westminster in 1994.  He remained with his firm for 23 years until being appointed a Judge of the Court at which time he gave up his successful law practice.   

As an attorney, Titus focused almost exclusively on Carroll County.  Most of his clients were private citizens or small businesses, but he also had the distinct honor of serving as counsel to three of Carroll’s Volunteer Fire Departments as well as two Carroll municipal governments. 

He has been a member of the Carroll County Bar Association since 1995 serving on its Public Records Committee, Education Committee and chairing its Technology Committee since 2011.  Upon becoming a Judge, he was appointed by the Chief Judge of Maryland's highest court to serve on the Technology Committee of the Maryland Judicial Conference.
