George Reilly has been an attorney for over 37 years, with the first half of his career serving the legal needs of Sailors, Marines, and their families as an
officer in the Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps.

Originally from Long Island, New York, George earned his bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and his law degree from Saint John’s University
School of Law. In 1997, George earned a Masters in Law degree from George Washington University School of Law with a specialization in income taxation and estate planning.

During his Navy career George served as the Navy’s... Tax Counsel during three separate assignments. In that position he represented the interests of Navy leadership as well as Sailors, Marines, and their families with respect to tax legislation, regulations, and policy. He also did extensive writing and teaching on such topics as income and estate taxation, estate planning, legal readiness, and financial planning.

Following his active-duty career George served for several years as a civilian attorney and inspector for the Navy and DoD. He then formed his own firm to provide a comprehensive service he referred to as “Peace of Mind Planning” to address the life and estate planning needs of his clients in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Peace of Mind Planning is more than just a typical estate plan. It involves the integration of the estate planning process with a client’s financial situation as well as seeking out opportunities for tax planning.

In addition to his legal and tax experience, George is also a Certified Financial Planner™, and has served as a financial advisor for many years. Although fewer than 5% of all of the CFPs in the U.S. also have a law degree, George recognized the importance of the financial planning process in preparing a comprehensive estate plan and earned this certification to enhance his legal practice. He brings this coordination of financial, tax, and legal planning into the comprehensive Peace of Mind Plan that we offer our clients at DBL.
