to announce that the firm is

founding on April 2, 1945. As the country
was moving towards the end of World

Leonard Talone, Morris Gerber, and four

Report for many years. Numerous attorneys
have also been haled repeatedly as " Super
Lawyers " and " Rising Stars " by Philadelphia
Magazine.

of our professional and support staff
substantially since 1945, we remain devoted
to the basic, core values of our founders:
attention to detail, time sensitivity, and
integrity. Our attorneys write, teach, and
organize programs for local and statewide
business and legal organizations, they serve
in leadership positions in legal, charitable,
and religious organizations, and they
mentor other attorneys. Many of our staff
members are leaders in their communities.
We care deeply about our profession, our
clients, and our communities. We feel
particularly privileged to be part of the
Montgomery County legal community.
