About me

Being an attorney has given Beverly Winstead the opportunity to change so many of her clients' lives for the better by solving their personal and business tax issues. From negotiating with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a settlement that is comfortable for a client to getting IRS to release a lien or levy, the favorite part of her tax practice has always been the peace she gives to her clients when she tells them that their debt has been significantly reduced or their tax issues have been resolved.


 


Her decision to practice law was a natural fit because of her competitive spirit. She went to college on an athletic scholarship at Bowie State University (BSU) and received numerous honors, such as being selected to All-Conference, All- Regional, and All-Tournament teams during her tenure. To date she has been the only woman in the history of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) to win three championships.


 


She graduated from BSU with a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in finance. After finishing her undergraduate studies she worked for local government doing budgeting and teaching entrepreneurial skills. However, she was never satisfied with working for local government because she felt that she had a deeper calling. Her deep desire to help people sent her to the University of Maryland, School of Law. While at the University of Maryland she learned skills necessary to be an effective advocate.


 


Just as she did on the women's basketball team at Bowie State where she made CIAA history and was honored as the MVP of various tournaments, she always puts on a winner's attitude for her clients. She is excited to use her skills that she learned while playing sports, to be the MVP that resolves her client's problems.


 


Attorney Beverly Winstead also serves as the Clinical Law Instructor for the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic at the University of Maryland, School of Law.
