Williams, Birnberg & Andersen, L.L.P., a Law Firm

To us, the term "law firm
" connotes a working together, a resolve to a common mission, a commitment to mutual support.
It also implies continuity, consistency, and stability.
At Williams, Birnberg & Andersen, L.L.P.,
we strive to fulfill those expectations and to exhibit that understanding
of what a "law firm" is supposed to be. Established in 1973, we evidence the permanence which indicates reliability and
steadiness. In fact, the original founding partners are all still with the firm. These longstanding relationships among the partners have
created a solid base for future growth and the means to develop strength in diverse areas of the law.

community involvement. Our approach to the representation of clients combines determination to provide high quality legal services
with a recognition of the practical realities (economic or otherwise) of each engagement. We are large and symbiotic enough to staff
matters with a team of attorneys where appropriate, yet small enough that each client matters greatly to us. Above all, our commitment
to excellence is unwavering. At Williams, Birnberg & Andersen, L.L.P.,
