Message From the Executive Committee

The 50th Anniversary of Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin

In 1962 when Frank Marshall opened the Law Offices of Francis E. Marshall, he could not have imagined that what he started from those humble beginnings would become a firm of over 400 lawyers in 20 different offices in six different states. Frank Marshall was an energetic, talented and gifted trial attorney. He was also compassionate and respectful of others. As the firm has grown since 1962, we have always tried to maintain the values that Frank instilled from the outset.

Throughout the course of the year, we look forward to sharing with you more details about the history of Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin. We study our history not only to honor those who worked hard to create our firm, but also because it inspires us and guides us in making better decisions for our firm. The founders of our firm created a work community where humor, hard work, respect, perseverance and teamwork are important values. These values are in many ways responsible for our success. We believe that maintaining and enhancing these values and traditions will only make the firm stronger and more successful in the future.

For our 50th Anniversary, we want to celebrate our values, traditions and success with our clients. We owe much of our success to the relationships we have developed with our clients over the years. We want to use the occasion of our 50th Anniversary to celebrate not only our firm, but our clients as well.

To celebrate our firm's anniversary, we are undertaking a number of activities internally, including creating a special 50th Anniversary logo and creating a book of our firm's history. We are also recording short videos of current and retired employees that will be shown on the firm's intranet throughout the year. We also hope to incorporate the story of our firm into our marketing plans to all of our clients this year.

We are excited and proud as we enter the firm's 50th year. We know that we would never have achieved the success we have without the teamwork and partnerships we have developed with all of our clients. We look forward to nurturing and growing those relationships in 2012 for the benefit of all of us.
