Big firm experience. Small firm service.

While our education & experience allows us to go toe to toe with “big firm” estate planning lawyers, MGD Law attorneys prefer practicing in the “small firm” environment – where we can help you implement the customized estate, trust and wealth planning that is right for you, your goals, and your loved ones, rather than offering our clients standard “cookie cutter” or incomprehensible plans. We not only aim to do the right thing, but to do what’s right for you.

Our Approach

Founding Members

MGD Law was formed when leading lawyers Lisa D. McLaughlin and Beverly J. Greenley joined practices in 2018. Lisa and Bev were joined by Adrienne J. Davis, whose experience includes both private practice estate planning as well as in-house senior Counsel at a local trust company. The partners are supported by an expert team of attorneys, paralegals and staff, who are all committed to providing smart, practical, personalized service.
