Attorney Profiles

The lawyers at our firm typically start their careers with a judicial clerkship and/or several years at one of the nation's largest and most respected firms. We attract attorneys who wish to continue to have the highest quality legal work, but prefer the informality and atmosphere of a small firm. We are uncompromising in hiring only the most exceptionally qualified lawyers, in terms of both academic background and hands-on experience in litigation and appeals.
