Why Danna McKitrick?
- “I was attracted to the way the firm is run and the absence of the 'command and control environment' present in large firms. Danna McKitrick provides me with a platform to accomplish what I feel, as a lawyer, is important: the critical mass to offer clients a broad range of services and a sophisticated, experienced team of attorneys to deliver them. This combination serves clients effectively.”
Rich Huck, veteran litigator & mediator, joined the firm in 2009
- “After interviewing with a number of firms, I chose Danna McKitrick upon meeting the attorneys and experiencing the open door culture. Instead of a formal mentoring program, you can walk into any colleague's office, whether an associate or a principal and get the support you need including the ability to tap into years of experience beyond your practice areas. I also value the fact that I can refer a matter to any colleague within the firm with complete confidence that the matter will be done well.”
Jenn Doering, associate, promoted from law clerk in 2008
- “Given a well-thought-out plan, the firm has never balked at supporting development of a practice area, sending an attorney to a CLE, or marketing a person’s experience. Danna McKitrick is a huge proponent of marketing. A six-eight year associate on a partner track at a larger firm or even other mid-sized firms, doesn't generally bring in much business of their own. Here, we are given the opportunity and the backing to market our practice.
Patrick Murphy, Big 4 CPA firm alum, past partner of a private law practice, joined the firm in 2006
