News From the Firm:

  • The firm is happy to announce that Lindsay Johnson was recently admitted to the New York State Bar.

"I wish I had known (or rather understood) that you can incorporate your personality into your practice. I spent some time trying to present the image of what I thought an attorney “should” be, repressing my own personality, and often my humor. Now, I use not only my intellect and the legal knowledge I have garnered over the years, I combine them with my personality—and yes, my humor—to explain things to my clients in ways they can not only hear and understand, but can also feel like they have themselves been heard. I feel that my ability to be myself only makes me a better attorney."
