About Us

The Law Offices of James A. List, LLC is a mid-Atlantic law firm serving business owners; families with developmentally disabled members; and individuals with real estate, estate planning, asset protection and trust needs. The cornerstone of this law firm is its personal, responsive customer service.

In the estate planning arena, we counsel clients in the use of traditional wills and revocable and irrevocable trustsasset protection trustsspecial needs trusts, and powers of attorney and medical directives.  Our core competencies include gifting strategies and the use of family LLCs/LLPs, 1031 exchanges and family charitable foundations.  We represent families in contested estate and trust litigation.

We continue to provide the traditional practice of business formation, contracts, corporate governance and litigation support, but our corporate practice is evolving into a succession planning and business advising company.  As our business clients mature and transition to the next generation of family and employees, we are emphasizing the need for tax and transfer structure advice.

Finally, we believe in and fully support public service and participation, and encourage all of our employees, consultants and clients to actively participate in charities, schools, religious and civic organizations.
