March 15 is a Big Day in Rudman Winchell History

By Rudman Winchell Attorney

THIS DAY IN RW HISTORY: Rudman, Winchell, Carter & Buckley began operating on March 15 1977. Besides the 5 named partners, Mike Friedman, Rob Sutcliffe, Larry Merrill, John Wallach, Steve Emery, David Leen and Richard Relyea were with here…, hitting the ground at full speed. Paul Chaiken was brought over from the DA’s office to start with the combined firms on the first day of operation.

There have been lots of changes since (one notable one – staff used to have 1 ½ hour lunches, with the 2 ½ hours being made up on Saturday mornings.)

Thanks to the founding partners for their initial vision, their dedication to the firm rather than themselves, and the culture they created of demanding the best from ourselves and each other, for the benefit of our clients.
