Despite having a law degree, a Ph.D. in economics and a distinguished health care background, Carol M. McCarthy can still laugh at herself.That's good, because her new colleagues at the Baltimore law firm of Ober, Kaler, Grimes & Shriver jokingly selected a Goodwill Industries motif for her office furniture.She also chuckles about the first time she tried to visit her 10th-floor office in the Bank of Baltimore building and wound up on an express elevator to the 17th floor instead.Practical jokes and newcomer gaffes notwithstanding, Mrs. McCarthy is excited to be at Ober, Kaler, which recruited her aggressively.
