Robert G. Blue Partner

Prior to joining Royston, Mueller, McLean & Reid, LLP, Bob practiced law at one of Baltimore’s largest law firms and then later was a partner with his father, Bill, in Blue & Blue, P.A., a firm that concentrated on estate planning and the administration of decedents' estates. In 2004, Blue & Blue, P.A. joined forces with Royston, Mueller, McLean & Reid, LLP and buttressed an already dynamic trusts and estates practice. Bob is a member of the firm’s Trusts and Estates practice group and focuses on assisting clients with developing strategies for the tax-efficient transfer of wealth through lifetime and testamentary planning. He works to craft sensible, understandable plans and then drafts the wills, trusts, and other documents needed to accomplish his clients’ goals. He also advises clients on probate matters, charitable planning, and matters relating to trust administration. Bob has written articles on estate planning for a number of publications and has made several appearances as a guest on the Baltimore radio show, Money, Riches and Wealth.
