THE TEAM

Twenty years of experience as a financial advisor and principal of the brokerage firm he founded in 1971 alerted Bill Conway to the pressing need among his clients for effective, creative and comprehensive planning not only for their lives, but for the protection of their legacies upon their death. In 1990, Mr. Conway opened his legal practice in McLean to provide clients with the comprehensive, innovative and personalized planning he feels every client deserves. With the partnership with Jessica Pannell in 2008, we have expanded our services to address the diversity of needs in the entire Washington metropolitan region along.  Over the years our family-oriented office has increasingly focused on the importance of total family and multi-generational planning, including business succession, ongoing care for those with special needs and asset protection, and those seeking to protect their legacy for generations to come. We are a team that values relationships driven by the process, not the transaction, in which the personal goals of our client families come first.
