Seven Wolf Block Partners Leave Firm, Join Hangley Aronchick
Seven Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen partners have left the 300-member firm and will join Hangley, Aronchick, Segal & Pudlin as shareholders. This move will enable Hangley Aronchick to create two additional practice groups, environmental and matrimonial/domestic relations, as well as operate an additional office in Montgomery County, PA. According to Hangley Aronchick Chairman William T. Hangley, the move was a result of the attorneys' interest in continuing their practices in a small firm environment. (Wolf Block recently expressed interest in expanding via a large-scale merger.) Hangley Aronchick's new attorneys include M. Norman Goldberger, Matthew A. White, Laura E. Krabill, Kenneth J. Warren, Steven T. Miano, Cheryl L. Young, and Helen E. Casale.
