Practice Summary
Practice Overview

The Law Office of Kay B. Watkins specializes in all categories of estate planning, including wills and trusts, probate administration, powers of attorney, living wills (advance directives), and HIPPA authorizations.

The founder of the firm, attorney Kay B. Watkins, is passionate about estate planning and cares deeply about her clients and their families. Ms. Watkins recognizes how confusing and painful the estate planning process can be, notwithstanding a client’s age or financial status. She takes the time to thoroughly learn the details of every case and to advise each client based on their unique situation. By explaining all available options, she ensures clients avoid errors that could delay (or, even worse, invalidate) the distribution of assets. Whether assisting with a simple estate plan, helping shield a client’s estate from taxes, protecting a client’s assets from creditors, helping heirs avoid probate, or otherwise assisting her clients, Ms. Watkins takes pride in guiding clients through the process and seeing how relieved clients are when they know their assets will be handed down according to their wishes.

Ms. Watkins believes that compassion is a key quality in any attorney. The firm accordingly practices estate planning from a Biblical perspective: “In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy path.” (Proverbs 3:6) The firm's mission is to infuse compassion and respect into every interaction it has with clients. Its further goal is to make clients feel confident about their future and the future of their loved ones. It is attentive to the wishes and needs of every client and willing to discuss legal concerns in great detail. Ultimately, the firm believes that informed and educated clients are more likely to make the best possible choices for their estates.

Ms. Watkins has been recognized as a top attorney in the area of estate planning by Top Attorneys of North America, Who’s Who Directories, and was most recently honored as a President’s Circle Member. She is additionally a member of the Maryland State Bar Association and District of Columbia Bar Association, where she is a member of the Estate and Trusts Section of both Associations. She is also a member of the Pennsylvania Bar.

Outside the practice of law, Ms. Watkins is active in the community and gives seminars at churches, community centers, and individual homes. She received her Juris Doctor from Columbus School of Law, Catholic University of America, earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Howard University and earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Oakwood University.
