Meet our Attorneys
As partner Andy Gillin is fond of saying, “We love fighting for the little guy.” We all began our careers in public service, and while the cases have gotten larger and more complex along the way, that hasn’t changed our firm’s focus. We're still proud of our community involvement over 40 years later. The one-on-one relationships with our clients are truly important for every member of our firm, and we maintain friendships with our clients long after we’ve won their cases. We invite you to get to know each of our attorneys better by visiting their profiles.
