Marilyn A. Wethekam Joins the Council on State Taxation as Of Counsel


After nearly three decades of outstanding service, HMB Legal Counsel announces that Marilyn A. Wethekam is leaving the practice of law and joining the Council on State Taxation (COST) as Of Counsel.

Marilyn is a foundational member of HMB’s State and Local Tax (SALT) Group and has played a prominent role in building its success. Since joining the firm in 1995, Marilyn’s contributions to HMB and our clients have been immeasurable, and we are grateful for her dedication, expertise and leadership.

“It’s never easy to bid farewell to a colleague,” said Jordan M. Goodman, Partner in HMB’s SALT group. “Marilyn has been an invaluable member of our firm and SALT practice, and her impact on our clients and colleagues has been beyond measure. Her influence on the state and local tax world cannot be overstated, and we have no doubt that she will continue to make a significant contribution in her new position at COST. We wish her every success in her next chapter and look forward to continuing our relationship with her.”

COST is a premier state tax organization representing taxpayers. Marilyn has been involved with COST for over 40 years, holding various leadership positions, including serving as the organization’s first female chair in 1992. She has helped the organization grow in its success, and we expect she will have an immediate impact in her new role.

While we are excited for Marilyn, we are also sad to see her go. She has been an integral part of our firm and she will be missed. We thank Marilyn for her many years of dedicated service and wish her luck as she embarks on this new chapter in her career.

Please reach out to Jordan Goodman with questions.
