Dara L. McKinney
Dara will be focusing on trust and probate administration, estate settlements and agency services. Prior to joining LANB in January 2009 as In-House Counsel in the Legal Department, McKinney was in private practice for 13 years with a focus on estate planning, probate and trust work. She spent her first years with Moore & Golden, P.A., and then practiced with P. Reid Griffith, P.A. (later became Griffith & McKinney, P.A.) and finally with Scheuer, Yost & Patterson, P.C. “Having been a customer long before becoming an employee, I have always been impressed with LANB being a pioneer in the products it offers to customers well before the big banks began to widely advertise the same services," McKinney said. "I am also proud of how LANB supports our communities.” McKinney is a member of Mountain Canine Corps, a volunteer search and rescue team based in Los Alamos, is a member of the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity of Espanola Valley & Los Alamos, Inc., and is a former Board Member of the United Way of Northern New Mexico and Los Alamos Family Council.
