Her tireless efforts, commitment to efficiency in her operations, and her personal warmth make all the difference in making clients feel comfortable with our firm. Continuing the tradition started many years ago by partners Richard Fessenden, Kevin Laumer, Mary Schiller, and Dan Gullotti, we’re delighted that Galena has joined our firm as a partner. Galena’s commitment to growing our business and continuing its legacy is important to our law firm.”
