Lawrence D. Hollman, a Washington lawyer specializing in tax, corporate acquisitions, estates and trusts, died June 27 at Sibley Memorial Hospital. He was 81.

The cause was lung cancer, said a granddaughter, Ali Hollman.

In 1956, Mr. Hollman moved to Washington and began his legal career with a firm that later became Ober Kaler. He had continued to work until shortly before his death.

Lawrence David Hollman was born in Brockton, Mass. He graduated in 1953 from Harvard University and in 1956 from its law school.

He was a Bethesda resident and a past president of Woodmont Country Club in Rockville.

Survivors include his wife of 59 years, Sally Wineck Hollman of Bethesda; three children, Laura Brush of Fort Washington, Pa., Steve Hollman of Chevy Chase and Mike Hollman of Rockville; and six grandchildren.
