“As we usher in new leadership at the firm, we pause to reflect on the firm’s growth and outstanding achievements over the past few years,” said Thomas W. Turner, Jr., Procopio’s managing partner. “We have watched as many established firms have downsized or closed their doors in these uncertain times. Procopio is fortunate to have grown 40% over the past three years and we continue to expand our talent base and legal expertise. We look forward to continued growth in 2009 and pledge to maintain our long-standing reputation of providing high-quality legal services and commitment to the community.”
