Through orderly and planned growth we grew to become the WITTEN LLP law firm of today, with over 50 lawyers and 100 support staff. Careful recruiting ensures these individuals come from diverse, yet complementary backgrounds and have a strong sense of commitment to the community. The result is a firm that provides each of our clients with experience and expertise in a wide range of legal areas.
