A Message From Attorney Michael F. Hupy: When a law firm is founded or what it traces its roots to is not always an easy determination to make. I was in high school in the mid 60's when this law firm was founded. For some time, I was under the impression that this firm was founded in 1969. When I joined this law firm in 1989, it was already well established. Later someone asked me how I could be sure that this law firm started in 1969 when I hadn't graduated from law school until 1972. I took this question as a challenge and did some research. As it turned out, I had understated the firm's age by at least five years.
