In 1975, attorneys William E. Furey, Devin J. Doolan and W. Shepherdson Abell founded the law firm of Furey, Doolan & Abell, LLP. For more than 40 years the firm has served clients in Montgomery County, across Maryland and throughout the D.C. metro region. As a long–serving business in Montgomery County, the firm has always believed it has a responsibility to give back to the community. Many of the employees do pro bono work, serve on the boards of area institutions and volunteer at local charitable organizations.
While co-founders Doolan and Abell have mostly stepped aside from practicing law full time, the firm continues in the capable hands of the next generation of partners and associates.
“We are very proud of the tradition of client service, ethics and integrity that Devin and Shep have instilled in the firm, and in all of us who will carry on the work of the firm into the future,” says Rob Grant, the firm’s managing partner. “We are proud of the work we do, the recognition we receive from our clients and peers, our record of results, and our contributions to the legal profession. As partners these are the values we want to pass on to our associates.”
After many years in Chevy Chase, the firm relocated to Bethesda in 2016 and is pleased to be part of the “New Bethesda” growing up along Wisconsin Avenue. The partners believe that the relocation will strengthen their ability to continue to offer the personalized and effective representation in estate planning, estate and trust administration, real estate, employment, and litigation matters for individual and corporate clients for many years to come.
