Welcome to the "Rights and Wrongs" issue of the Bar Bulletin. The desire to champion rights and right wrongs goes to the heart of why many of us went to law school. It's worth taking a moment to reflect on where we are in our careers and how they have followed or deviated from whatever it was that made us go into law school in the first place. This brings us to the main point of this column, which is to look at where people are today...
New Partners and Shareholders
When I first started writing this column 20-plus years ago, I would have a ton of new partners to announce in February because firms promoted people to partnership effective January 1. Over the years, lawyers have become increasingly mobile, so I receive announcements of new partners and new members year-round. There still are, however, those stalwart firms that elect new partners and members effective January 1, which I am happy to include in this column.
Eric Robinson has been named the newest shareholder at Mills Meyers Swartling P.S. His practice focuses on the representation of individuals and business organizations in a variety of commercial contexts. He also rowed on the varsity crew team at my alma mater, the University of Washington.
Filmore Rose has joined Rimon Law as a partner. He is a member of the firm's tax team and private client team. Rose was formerly with Lane Powell PC.
Eric Christensen has joined Cairncross & Hempelmann as a partner. Christensen's practice involves energy regulation, transactions and litigation. Christensen was formerly a partner at Gordon Thomas Honeywell.
Elizabeth Hershman-Greven and Alan Schuchman have become shareholders at Skellenger Bender, P.S. Hershman-Greven practices family law. Schuchman's areas of practice include design professional representation, construction litigation, labor and employment counseling and litigation, and commercial and general civil litigation.
Sarah MacLeod has been elected to shareholder at Lane Powell PC. MacLeod is a member of the firm's Trusts and Estates Practice Group. Her practice includes estate and gift planning, estate and trust administration, and business succession issues.
Aaron Riensche and Amber Quintal have been elected members at my absolute favorite law firm, Ogden Murphy Wallace, PLLC. Riensche's practice emphasizes general litigation, including personal injury, products liability and insurance defense. Quintal's practice focuses on federal, state and local taxation, estate planning and general business.
