Elville and Associates recently welcomed Nicole T. Livingston, J.D., to the Firm and its estate planning team. Ms. Livingston will maintain offices at the Firm’s new 7100 Columbia Gateway Drive, Suite 190 location, and at the Firm’s Annapolis office, located at 1997 Annapolis Exchange Parkway, Suite 367.
Ms. Livingston concentrates her practice in the areas of estate planning and elder law (including guardianship), as well as special needs and advanced tax planning. Furthermore, she creates solutions to client needs concerning asset protection and wealth preservation.
“Elville and Associates is proud to announce that Nicole Livingston has affiliated with the Firm and joined its busy estate planning and elder law practice,” said Stephen R. Elville, principal of Elville and Associates. “I am very happy to welcome Nicole to Elville and Associates, and am pleased that Nicole has brought her substantial talents and years of experience to our law firm to assist us in the accomplishment of our mission and vision of educating clients and their families and making planning work, and offering solutions that make a difference in people’s lives.

Since joining Elville and Associates, Ms. Livingston has begun offering her educational “storytelling” approach in estate planning workshops on a recurring basis.
As Elville and Associates has established a strong reputation for empathy and a “Caring for Clients Model” over the years to coincide with the Firm’s mission and vision of educating clients and their families through counseling and superior legal-technical knowledge, Ms. Livingston was attracted to the Firm’s culture and purpose, one that coincided with her own values. She knew she had found the right law firm with which to continue her growth as an attorney and make the biggest difference in the lives of her clients.
“With a focus on education and counseling, Elville and Associates represents my core values for providing legal representation to estate planning clients,” remarked Ms. Livingston. “The collaboration of working with clients, their financial advisors, and accountants as a team to properly plan and administer estates is important to me. Providing superior legal-technical knowledge through a customized, personal approach is why I chose to join the team at Elville and Associates.”
