Specializing in Corporate Law

We’ve selected six Lawyers of the Year for portraits and asked them to share a favorite quotation and to tell us why they love what they do. These profiles appeared along with Woodward/White’s annual Best Lawyers in America list, as published in our November issue.

Why Do You Love What You Do? I joined Gallagher, Callahan & Gartrell in 1981. In the 37 years since, I have watched a founders’ generation retire, the next generation pick up the torch and carry it well, and now see yet a newer generation taking over management of the firm. At each stage, we have been able to serve great clients and practice law at the highest caliber, all the while maintaining collegiality and a wonderful workplace. It is a place I still enjoy walking into every day, great staff, great attorneys.

“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink.”
— George Orwell
