Marianna Batie, an Eastern Shore native with 15 years experience practicing law, is opening an office in West Ocean City.
The firm will represent clients in a range of legal matters, including but not limited to: Wills and Trusts, estate administration, business formations, sales and purchases of businesses, Medicaid applications, formation of non-profit organizations and representing taxpayers who are in conflict with the IRS (representation can be for a flat fee or on an hourly basis).
After graduating law school with honors and passing the Bar Exam, Ms. Batie was initially trained in Atlanta, Georgia, by former IRS lawyers at the law firm of Chamberlain Hrdlicka. She then worked for DLA Piper serving clients domestically and internationally. In 2012 she moved home to the Eastern Shore, and joined the Salisbury law firm Hearne & Bailey, P.A. where she ran the firm’s estate planning, trust and estate administration practices and conducted many real estate settlements. She also developed the firm’s elder law and Medicaid practices.
