Baltimore, MD  -- Beverly L. Winstead, ESQ made history when she was appointed as Chair of the Tax Division for the Maryland State Bar Association -- the first Black woman and person of color to hold the position since the organization was founded in 1896. She'll serve her first term through fall 2019.

As Tax Chair, the Bowie State University alumna immediately assembled a Diversity and Inclusion Committee to prioritize recruitment and mentoring for diverse attorneys and law students in the tax field. She's also created guidelines for members to prioritize diversity and inclusion initiatives in their workplaces and hiring practices. Additionally, under her leadership, the Tax Section created a statewide tax hotline to assist furloughed federal employees and government contractors during the longest government shutdown in US history.

A personal and business tax expert, Attorney Winstead is the managing attorney for the Law Office of Beverly Winstead, LLC where she handles client disputes with the IRS and state taxing agencies. She also serves as Clinic Director and Clinical Law Instructor for the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic at the University of Maryland, Carey School of Law, where she advocates on behalf of low income taxpayers and teaches students advocacy skills needed to resolve federal and state tax controversies. Attorney Winstead is also a member of the Steering Committee for the American Bar Association's International Tax Section and Vice Chair of the Tax Section for the National Bar Association.
