The Honorable Lacy M. Flook was sworn into office as the Register of Wills for Washington County on December 5, 2022, after serving as Assistant Chief Deputy and Senior Deputy for Frederick County since 2010.

 Prior to working for the State of Maryland, Lacy worked as a paralegal for a private law firm in Frederick, Maryland with ten (10) years of experience in Estate Planning and Administration. Lacy received a paralegal certificate from Abbie Business Institute and graduated from Middletown High School where she focused most of her studies in Agriculture. Lacy also attended the Career Technology Center in Frederick studying landscaping. Growing up on a dairy farm and through FFA and 4-H, Lacy showed dairy cattle at the Great Frederick Fair along with her siblings and passed that experience down to her children. Her favorite part of growing up on the farm was getting on that tractor and raking hay, for hours on end or until the job was complete.

 Lacy has served the public since joining the workforce at the age of 15, rather it be making someone’s sandwich, checking out their items at the local farm store or preparing their estate plan for review by their Attorney. Hard work and dedication are no stranger to her.

“My goal as Register of Wills is to show compassion during a difficult time and to hopefully enlighten some with knowledge to do their estate plan” ~ Lacy M. Flook
