About Us

At the Law Office of Catherine R. Mack, my practice focuses on estate planning and probate for Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia clients and estates. Whether you need just a simple Will to name a guardian for your minor child — or a complex trust to address the needs of a disabled member of your family or children from a prior marriage — I am here to assist you. No matter how difficult the situation, I know how to ensure that assets are properly distributed after death. I also help with estate and trust administration, including probate and trust litigation matters, and with legal concerns associated with aging.

I work as a solo attorney — with the help of a small team — by choice. This gives me the flexibility to give you the attention you deserve when you need it. I am also able to charge very reasonable fees for first-rate legal work.
