Maureen O’Leary-Guth, president of Thiensville-based O’Leary-Guth Law Offices, S.C., was recently elected by her peers to the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. ACTEC Fellows must have more than 10 years of experience in the active practice of probate and trust law or estate planning. Lawyers and law professors are elected to be fellows based on their reputation, skill and contributions to the field through lecturing, writing, teaching and participating in bar activities. O’Leary-Guth is one of seven female lawyers in Wisconsin to be recognized by ACTEC.
Beyond her legal practice, O’Leary-Guth is an entrepreneur. In the past year, she has doubled her staff and opened a second location, in Mequon.
After her daughter, who is now 6, was born four months early, O’Leary-Guth became involved in Graham’s Foundation as a parent mentor to help other parents of micropreemies. She is also active in the Thiensville-Mequon Rotary Club, serving as incoming club president. O’Leary-Guth is also an officer, programming chair and director of the Milwaukee Estate Planning Forum.
