Manning, Murray, Barnett & Baxter, P.C.
Manning, Murray, Barnett & Baxter, P.C. (MMBB) was founded in 1988 as a boutique estate planning law firm by Don Manning and Bill Murray, both graduates of W-L High School. Don and Bill, along with then and current legal assistant Melinda Burroughs and one other assistant, opened their first office on Glebe Road in the Ballston area and moved to their current office on Wilson Boulevard in the Dominion Hills neighborhood in 1994.
Over the years, the firm has grown from two attorneys and two staff to six attorneys and eleven staff. With the growth, MMBB has remained true to its original purpose of providing quality estate planning services to individuals and small business owners residing in Northern Virginia. They assist family members with the administration of loved ones’ estates and trusts and serve as executors and trustees when needed.
Elder law, another area of the firm’s practice, focuses on guiding clients and families through transitions from their homes to retirement or care communities, reviewing nursing or retirement home contracts, advising about public benefits programs, providing bill-paying services, and if necessary, filing guardianship petitions and acting as a fiduciary.
The firm seeks to serve clients young and old, both now and over the years. Because the attorneys span a broad range of ages, clients have continuity of representation and quality service.
The attorneys of MMBB take great pride in being a part of the Arlington community, participating in many local, civic and charitable ventures, frequently in leadership roles.
