THIENSVILLE – Willms S.C., a local estate planning law firm on North Main Street in Thiensville announced on Jan. 1 that it has changed its name to Willms-O’Leary S.C.

That comes in conjunction with the announcement that attorney Maureen L. O’Leary will become the president and CEO of the company. Attorney Andrew J. Willms will continue to serve the firm and its clients in an “of counsel” role.

Willms founded the firm in 1990 in the house converted to an office building at 414 N. Main St.

Over the past nearly 30 years, the firm grew to be known for providing clients with excellent trust and estate planning, business, tax and elder law services, according to a news release.

O’Leary, who has been with the firm since 2008, said “our firm has extensive experience with estates of all sizes. We are proud to provide our clients with the technical expertise that is typically associated with a firm many times our size, while maintaining the friendliness, individualized attention and fee structure of a smaller firm.”

Other attorneys with Willms-O’Leary S.C. include Samuel Azinger, who is also a Thiensville village trustee, and Peter Smiley.

“Experienced attorneys like Andy (Willms) and Maureen (O’Leary) are great resources for our community,” said Azinger, who has been with the firm since 2016.

“With so many of us helping our parents and grandparents as they age, most of us eventually need a trust and estate law firm like Willms-O’Leary S.C. I’m thankful to be a part of a firm that Thiensville and the surrounding communities have available to help residents plan for the future, and I look forward to this new chapter with the firm,” Azinger added.
