Offit Kurman is pleased to announce that Lauren A. Jenkins and Theodora Stringham have been named to the Virginia Business Magazine’s 22nd annual Legal Elite list. Ms. Jenkins and Ms. Stringham are principal attorneys in the firm’s Tysons Corner office. Launched in cooperation with the Virginia Bar Association in 2000, Virginia Business’ Legal Elite polls lawyers licensed to practice in Virginia each year, asking them to identify which of their peers are the top attorneys across 20 categories of legal specialties.

Ms. Jenkins was named for her work in Taxes and Estates and Trusts.  She 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, Arlington Magazine, Bethesda Magazine, and Washingtonian, and is a Fellow of The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel.

Ms. Stringham was named for her work in Real Estate and Land Use. She assists individuals, businesses and organizations with growing successfully while minimizing liability. Focusing on real estate and personnel needs, Ms. Stringham executes sustainable plans for real estate development and employee matters. She provides comprehensive representation for everyday growth issues, including, but not limited to, re-zonings, site plan approvals, eminent domain/valuation concerns, employment discrimination and disciplinary issues.
