Kicking off 2019 are promotions for sixteen of the nation’s most talented lawyers at WSHB. Promotion of this talented group of lawyers comes on the heels of a year where the firm saw continued growth, as evidenced by its recognition in Law360 as one of the fastest growing law firms in the nation.

This year's class is comprised of James Chortanian (Orange County), Williams Daks (New York), Cassidy Ellis (Las Vegas), Robert Ferrier (Northern California), Jordan Gaskins (Glendale), Michael Harrell (New York), Anoush Holaday (Northern California), Kimberly Jones (Tampa), Andrew Kleiner (Phoenix), Danielle Kuck (Thousand Oaks), Colleen McCaffrey (Atlanta), Eric Morales (Miami), Samuel Nora (Los Angeles), Herjit Rubio (Riverside), Richard Singer (Miami), and Analise Tilton (Las Vegas)....
