Bethesda, MD | December 15, 2020

Offit Kurman is pleased to announce that Michelle L. Evans and Lauren A. Jenkins have been named to the Washingtonian’s Top Financial Adviser’s 2021 list as top estate attorneys.  Thousands of surveys are distributed to the local financial-advisory community, where those individuals vote for their peers. The top financial advisers list consists of financial planners, estate attorneys, tax accountants, insurance specialists, and investment advisers. Only 56 attorneys were selected to be on the list this year, while 225 financial advisors were selected.

Michelle L. Evans focuses her practice on estate planning and trust and estate administration in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Ms. Evans assists clients with creating estate plans to meet their financial and personal objectives and dedicates a substantial amount of her time to estate and trust administration matters. Her administration practice includes directing fiduciaries through the probate process in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia, and assisting with the preparation of inventories and accounts. Ms. Evans prepares federal, D.C., and Maryland estate tax returns for taxable estates as well as estate tax returns to elect portability of the estate tax exclusion amount.


Lauren A. Jenkins focuses her practice on tax and estate planning, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, trust and estate administration, and tax compliance in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Ms. Jenkins is a sought-after lecturer and author on estate planning, estate administration, and trust topics. In recognition of her work, Ms. Jenkins has received a number of awards and honors, including distinction as a Top Lawyer, Top Wealth Advisor, and Top Financial Professional in lists published by Northern Virginia Magazine, Bethesda Magazine, and Arlington Magazine, and is a Fellow of The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel.

Ms. Evans and Ms. Jenkins were also named to the Washingtonian Top Lawyers 2020 List – Trusts & Estates practice earlier this year.  For more information on our Estates and Trusts practice, visit us at
