Providing Legal Services Since 1978
I am Susan Eleff, an attorney with over thirty-five years of experience in estate planning, business transactions and commercial real estate matters. I welcome new clients in the areas where I practice, and make every effort to provide outstanding service.
My estate planning practice includes the preparation of wills, trust agreements, family limited partnerships with planned gifting, powers of attorney, medical directives, and estate administration, including resolution of controversies. I formulate comprehensive plans to address tax aspects, asset protection and business succession, in accordance with clients’ needs and priorities.
In transactional work, my practice extends to a broad range of matters, including corporate, partnership and limited liability company start-ups, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and reorganizations, private placement of securities, buy-sell and employment agreements, secured transactions and intercreditor agreements, work-outs and refinancings.
My real estate work encompasses property acquisitions, sales, development, financing, tax-free exchanges, leasing, restrictive covenant and easement agreements for retail, office, industrial, residential, condominium and mixed-use properties, including big box and shopping center developments, office buildings, raw land, and other real estate. I have also handled trial and appellate litigation on adverse possession cases in the Maryland state courts.
I am admitted to practice in Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Illinois. I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Law, and was a Benjamin Franklin Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, receiving my B.A. there in two years after high school, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, with honors in my major, Economics, where I was awarded the Shanbaum Prize (top Economics graduate). I have been rated “AV Preeminent” in the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings, the highest rating possible for both skills and ethics, and hold a 10.0 Superb rating with the Avvo attorney rating website.
I can be reached at 301.857.1990 or 800.765.2662, or via [email protected] I look forward to hearing from you.
