We have been handling wills and estates cases in Waldorf, Lexington Park, and all of Southern Maryland for 50 years. We have helped thousands of people protect their assets and their family. We want to help you with your will and estate case too.

Chances are we have seen a financial situation similar to yours in the past. That knowledge and experience is what you get when you hire an experienced local attorney to do your will or handle your estate.

Your last words on this earth and too important to leave to some mass produced software program trying to cover everyone with the same form. We produce custom made “battle tested” documens we know will stand up later. And the most important thing you get by hiring an attorney to do your will is the advice that comes with it. No software package can analyze the unique facts of your personal situation and give advice based on those facts. A real live lawyer can do that. 

We are truly local lawyers – serving clients in Charles County, St. Mary’s County, Calvert County and Prince George’s County. We know the local court systems in La Plata, Leonardtown, Prince Frederick, and Upper Marlboro. We don’t drive down to Southern Maryland to handle occasional cases. We live here.
