I began my legal career with the two person law firm of Gleick and Steinberg, followed a stint with a large law firm in 1969 with Lashley, Caruthers, Rava, Hyndman & Rutherford. Preferring a small firm practice I have been so engaged since 1975. I have had the highest Martindale Hubble attorney rating of AV since 1968.
