Tiffany Wrkich ATTORNEY
Tiffany represented some of our nation’s largest hedge funds, real estate investment trusts, and institutional investors during the credit crunch, and developed skills to creatively and flexibly solve problems in seemingly impossible situations. Tiffany has nearly twenty years of experience in corporate, finance, real estate and commercial law and is known for her ability to make even the most complicated matters seem clear.
Tiffany Wrkich has been an attorney with Seiler Mitby since 2018, after an extensive legal career in Washington, D.C. In addition to her commercial litigation practice, she advises on a wide range of transactional matters for the firm, including start-ups, business divorces, asset and stock purchases, joint ventures, debt and equity investments, real estate transactions, commercial leases and loan workouts.

Additionally, Tiffany has represented numerous national homebuilders to acquire and entitle land, and develop large multi-phase residential communities, including resolving matters related to title, zoning and property owners’ associations.
She has also served as general counsel to a medical company providing clinical and drug safety services, where she negotiated government contracts, established an institutional review board and led the company’s mergers and acquisitions to acquire competing businesses.
Tiffany graduated from University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 1998 and earned her law degree from University of Baltimore School of Law in 2002. During law school, she served as Editor-in-Chief of the University of Baltimore Law Forum.
She is an active member and practicing lawyer with the State Bar of Texas, the Maryland State Bar Association, the District of Columbia Bar, The Woodlands Bar Association and the Montgomery County Bar Association.
Outside of her legal activities, Tiffany serves in leadership for Junior League of The Woodlands, where she works with many community partners, including Yes to Youth–Montgomery County Youth Services, The Giving Gown Foundation, and the Montgomery County Coalition Against Human Trafficking.
