(When we say that at least five of the 50 homes are owned by lawyers, we’re not counting Earl F. Glock. It appears that Glock, also a GULC grad, is holding the #32 house in a trustee capacity; he’s not the beneficial owner. Washingtonian didn’t make the same mistake that the Boston Globe made in reporting that real estate lawyer Henry Rosen was the real owner of a $13 million Boston condominium.)
Eugene Ludwig and Carol Ludwig occupy the lofty perch of #19. You can read more about their gigantic abode — such as how much they paid for it, and how big it is — over at Washingtonian. Ludwig is a graduate of Yale Law School, where he was pals with Bill Clinton, in whose administration he served as comptroller of the currency. Before his time as comptroller, Ludwig was a partner at Covington & Burling — but it seems he made his real money as founder and CEO of Promontory Financial Group, a consulting firm for financial services companies.
Finally, let’s check out the highest-ranked lawyer home. It’s worth more than $10 million — and we have many photos of it, because the real estate listing for it is still online.
The owner is a lawyer at a Biglaw firm, interestingly enough. Which one?
