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 forcing our clients into “cookie cutter” or incomprehensible plans. We not only aim to do the right thing, but to do what’s right for you.

Our Approach

Our Team

MGD Law was formed when Lisa D. McLaughlin and Beverley J. Greenley joined practices in 2018. They are accompanied by Adrienne J. Davis, whose experience includes both private practice estate and wealth 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.
