Jennifer McManus

Jennifer McManus is an experienced attorney in our firm’s Estate Planning, Elder Law and Probate & Trust Administration practice groups.  Jennifer works with individuals and families to protect their assets and plan for their future needs.  She takes the time to break down what can sometimes be overwhelming tax and legal jargon into layman’s terms so that each client understands all the tools that are available to them.  Jennifer strives to ensure that clients develop estate plans that are shaped by their own unique circumstances.  Jennifer chose this field because she truly enjoys helping people as they contemplate some of life’s more difficult decisions.  In administering estates, Jennifer helps families navigate through this difficult process and ease the many burdens they encounter. 

Prior to joining our Firm, Jennifer worked as an attorney at large regional firm in their Estate Planning and Estate Administration practice.  Jennifer is originally from Ellicott City, Maryland.  She is thrilled to be working in the community where she grew up.  Jennifer is currently living in Howard County with her family.
