January 1, 2019 marks the Tenth Anniversary of the founding of our law firm. We chose to mark this date with an anniversary celebration to express our appreciation to the many clients, colleagues, fellow Berkshire County lawyers, friends and family who have contributed to a much greater level of success than we would have dared to dream about in the summer of 2008 when this all began.
We decided to organize a new firm because of our continuing commitment to all of our clients. The ideals on which the firm was founded include: (1) working within our individual areas of specialty at the highest level available anywhere, (2) establishing great working relationships with members of the Berkshire Bar and lawyers outside the Berkshires, and (3) embracing our passion and spirit for this work.
On January 1, 2009, we started the firm with six lawyers and six staff members. Many have remained and the Firm has doubled in size so that, on our Tenth Anniversary, we have 12 lawyers, and an amazing group of other experienced and capable professionals – all of whom subscribe to the firm’s Service Commitment (and work hard every day for our firm to be the best that it can be):
We know that our clients’ most exciting opportunities and most troubling challenges do not arise just on Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 AM to 5:30 PM; and whenever those opportunities or challenges arise, we are determined to immediately respond to our clients’ needs on a 24-7 basis.
We are pleased that we have upheld our Service Commitment throughout the first ten years of our existence. We are also very pleased that over the ten years we have made three new partners, Christopher M. Hennessey, Dennis G. Egan Jr. and Jesse Cook-Dubin, each of whom has been recognized as among the very best lawyers in Western Massachusetts in his practice specialty. And we are very proud of our very strong and growing relationships with other Berkshire County lawyers who have regularly turned to us to collaborate on the most difficult matters for their clients.
To our clients, colleagues, fellow Berkshire County lawyers, friends and family: we express our deep appreciation for the good fortune of our success to which all of you have contributed.
