Get to Know Celia 

After many years with the firm in various part-time capacities, Celia Lankford joined Hantzmon Wiebel full time in 2012. Her extensive volunteer service in long-term care provides Celia with a unique perspective regarding the taxation of estates, trusts, and individuals. She enjoys musical pursuits such as singing with the Oratorio Society of Virginia and playing hymns with the residents of Martha Jefferson House. If the weather is good, you may spot her and her husband out bicycling on a rural road. When she has an opportunity to get away, she enjoys traveling throughout the U.S. to stay connected with family and explore new places.

Celia Lankford has been my savior on tax, estate, and business problems. She is constantly patient and professional, and I highly recommend her services. Additionally, she is always upbeat and pleasant, and it is a joy to work with her.
