Whiteford Taylor & Preston announced Jan. 12, MaryEllen Willman and Jennifer McManus have joined the firm’s Estates and Trusts group.
“I am delighted to join WTP, with its broader practices and resources,” Willman, who was a partner at Durbin Willman & Associates, said. “As my client base has expanded to cover people with estate planning needs throughout Maryland, D.C. and Virginia, it became increasingly clear that I needed the reach of a firm with offices in all three jurisdictions. Joining WTP will allow me to serve my clients from locations that are convenient for them.”
“We are very pleased to welcome MaryEllen and Jennifer to our Columbia office,” Martin Fletcher, the firm’s managing partner said. “Strengthening our estates and trusts practice will allow us to more fully serve our clients throughout the mid-Atlantic.”
With the addition of Willman and McManus, the firm’s Estates and Trusts group now includes 14 lawyers, based in our Towson, Baltimore, Columbia, Washington and Falls Church offices.
Willman, who will be a partner at WTP, is a 1986 graduate of the American University, Washington College of Law, and is admitted in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. McManus received her J.D. earlier this year from the University of Maryland School of Law and is admitted to Maryland.
