Of Counsel


Linda has spent many years in the fields of Estate and Wealth Planning and Trust and Estate Administration, dealing with people at all stages of life and sophistication. It is her goal to provide her clients with customized service and solutions tailored to their specific needs. She helps them to understand complex estate planning issues to enable them to make the decisions that will protect their families and assure that their financial and planning goals will be met.

Linda began her career as an attorney in a law firm with a general civil practice, focused primarily on estate planning and tax matters, with some work on corporate, real estate and civil litigation matters. She subsequently spent over two decades working for St. Louis trust companies, providing high net worth clients with expertise and sophisticated solutions in the areas of estate and trust fiduciary administration, charitable planning, and retirement, IRA and tax planning. She developed and taught in-house estate and trust training programs to educate trust company and bank staff about estate planning and trust administration issues.

After a brief retirement, Linda resumed practicing law and joined MGD Law, LLC. In 2024, Linda transitioned to being Of Counsel with MGD Law, LLC.
