We sincerely thank everyone who attended our Open Haus last week.

More than 100 people attended the brew pub themed event. We enjoyed sampling craft beers from Grist House Brewery and food from the Culinary Artists.

In addition to networking, the guests had the opportunity to meet our attorneys who recently joined the firm.

We are pleased to be a part of Pittsburgh and this vibrant and growing city and look forward to many more open houses to come.
