Stein Public Interest Center, especially as there are so many outstanding law firms in our region.   

“When a few of us took the leap of faith 25+ years ago to establish our own firm, I was optimistic and confident that we could create a unique and successful environment and culture, of which we could be very proud, comprised of outstanding passionate and enthusiastic lawyers. This recognition of our attorneys’ dedication and commitment throughout the years is gratifying.”
