NEW NEWS: WE'RE E-X-P-A-N-D-I-N-G!

 
Congratulations to Regina L. Farmer, Esq. (Gina)!  Gina has been named a partner at Ferenczy + Paul LLP.  Her new position with the Firm coincides with the opening of the Firm’s third regional law office in Knoxville, Tennessee, on December 1, 2013.  Gina, a native Tennessean, is thrilled about both her partnership and the Firm’s expansion. 

“Becoming a partner with Ferenczy + Paul LLP is the realization of all of my years of working and growing with the Firm and I look forward to the challenge of managing the new Knoxville office,” she says.

“Gina has been an indispensable part of our team since she began working with us eight years ago,” Ilene Ferenczy, the Firm’s managing partner, said.  “It is really wonderful to be able to recognize her contribution.  Having another regional office allows us to do what we do best for our clients, provide quality legal work with even more flexibility.  And, we couldn’t be more pleased to have Gina as our partner in both the Firm and in this new endeavor.”


We are also very pleased to congratulate and welcome our newest employee, Aaron R. Moody, as an associate attorney.  Aaron passed the Georgia Bar exam and was sworn in as a lawyer on November 5, 2013.
