Welcome to Arness & Associates, PLLC.

Leibner & Potkin

The law firm of Arness & Associates, PLLC was formed in 2008 as a successor entity to Leibner & Potkin, P.C., after the retirement of Robert Leibner and the departure of Lane Potkin for an in-house corporate counsel position.


John E. Arness, II began with Leibner & Potkin, P.C. in 1992 after several years of previous legal experience, and the same high quality legal and settlement services provided since 1983 continue. Commercial and residential real estate settlement services are now provided under the name of LP Title, LLC, formed in 2007.


The attorneys and staff at Arness & Associates, PLLC remain committed to providing quality legal services to a wide variety of clients in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Over the years, our professional staff has represented some of the area’s largest real estate developers relating to the acquisition, development, leasing, and financing of major commercial projects.


The law firm’s practice areas include real estate transactions (both residential and commercial – sales, finance and leasing); civil, commercial and appellate litigation in both Maryland and District of Columbia local and federal courts; tort and contract law; corporate law; business law; probate and estates; real estate and general practice matters.


Our title company staff has performed thousands of residential real estate settlements, with many years of experience in acquisitions, refinancing, and sales.

Lane Potkin has since returned to the private practice of law in an of counsel role with the firm, lending his considerable insight and experience to our practice, as well as his.
