Recommendation for electrician to install 240V outlet in Howard County, MD?

I received my Tesla Gen 2 Mobile Connector this weekend, and am planning on getting a 240V outlet (NEMA 14-50) installed. If anyone in the area has a recommendation for an electrician, it'd be most appreciated. Thanks! I figure I need an outlet wired for 40A, as the MC is rated at 32A max.

You actually need a 50 A circuit, per code, as a 14-50 is defined as a 50 A outlet. Also, it will be wired with a neutral, even though the UMC doesn't use one. Any electrician can wire a 14-50, and probably cheaper, just be sure the neutral socket is down on the socket to match the UMC's plug (to reduce stress on the cable).
