Pittsburgh-based law firm hires former Devine Law Offices attorneysMove expands Central Pa. presence of Cipriani & Werner
Pittsburgh-based law firm Cipriani & Werner P.C. last week hired seven attorneys from Devine Law Offices LLC in Lancaster, which has disbanded.
The lawyers will remain at the same Lancaster office, which is now being leased by Cipriani & Werner, said Patricia Haeck, firm administrator at Cipriani & Werner.
The deal took effect July 1.
Founded by James F. Devine, the former Devine Law Offices specialized in employment law. It welcomed the change.
"Being part of a larger, multi-disciplinary law firm that extends throughout the mid-Atlantic region will allow us to expand our geographic reach and draw on additional resources to benefit our clients," Devine said in a statement.
Joining Devine at Cipriani & Werner are six additional lawyers from his firm. They are: Stephen Fleury Jr., Jeffrey Gray, Morgan Hays, Susan Jortner Deely, Daniel Lieberman and Ryan Murphy.
"These highly skilled attorneys bring with them over 75 years of litigation experience that will complement and expand our core practice areas, particularly in employment law, while we increase our presence in the central Pennsylvania area with the opening of our 14th office," Dennis Cullen, managing partner of Cipriani & Warner’s Central Pennsylvania offices, said in a statement.
Cipriani & Werner has 150 attorneys in 14 offices in seven states and the District of Columbia, including offices in Wormleysburg, Philadelphia and Scranton.
