Joe Sperling, JD is an independent insurance broker in Rockville, MD, Montgomery County

I'm a native Washingtonian who never left. I’ve lived in Maryland (Montgomery County) my entire life, so far.  I attended Blair High School (with Goldie Hawn and Connie Chung – my claim to “fame by association”) , University of Maryland (Go Terps) and Georgetown Law Center (Go Hoyas).

Native Washingtonian

I married my high school sweetheart, and we’re still together, going strong and friends after 50 years.  She even saved my life.  But that’s a story for another time.  We have been blessed with two beautiful and dynamic daughters (one a Physical Therapist and the other an Emergency Department nurse) and four fantastic and quite energetic grandchildren. A lot to be thankful for.

As for hobbies, beside reading and movies (like action and suspense, not sappy chick flicks), I enjoy motorcycling, especially in the country when the honeysuckles are in bloom.  But riding around 495…not so much.

I also play golf…badly.  But, hey, it’s a good walk in the sunshine.

Reformed Litigator

For about 16 years, I practiced law as a litigator.  Then, in 1988, shifted from a very negative environment  into the world of insurance, where I was able to realize the joy of helping people protect some important stuff:  their families, income, assets and retirement.  There is a very profound satisfaction in being the guide, providing information, security and comfort, and being appreciated for what you do, and who you are.

Thank you for considering me as a future friend.​
