It’s a big day for us at the law firm formerly known as Walsh, Anderson, Gallegos, Green and Trevino! We have changed our name! We are now:
WALSH, GALLEGOS, TREVINO, RUSSO and KYLE
And yes, we are absolutely the very same firm. Only the name (and the letterhead, the business cards, the website, the coffee mugs, the baseball caps, the pens and the other swag) has changed.
What brought this about? Well, as many of you know, Dorcas Green left us recently to travel to Ireland and other fine places and otherwise enjoy retirement with her husband Gary. So it was time to drop the “Green” and add the next in line. But since we were going to need to change the name in light of Dorcas’s departure, we decided it was time to make an additional change as well. Denise Anderson retired from the firm some years ago. We kept her name in accordance with State Bar regulations, and Denise has stayed in touch with us and done occasional work, when not otherwise occupied playing with her grandchildren in Arkansas. We decided we wanted to use the firm name to promote those lawyers who are still actively practicing with us, the ones that you know. Moving Elena Gallegos’s name up a notch was also a way for us to celebrate our two-state practice, since Elena inaugurated our Albuquerque office.
Elena and I made a phone call to Denise to let her know that we thought it was time to drop her name from our corporate title. Denise was most gracious about this, as we knew she would be.
So today is the day! I am very pleased to see my longtime partners, Bob Russo and Paige Kyle, both in our San Antonio office, attain this recognition. Oscar Trevino has served as our leader and managing shareholder for over a decade, and so I am pleased also to see his name move up a notch. Elena now enjoys the second longest tenure among the lawyers in our firm. She clerked for us while attending UT Law School, and then joined the firm upon graduation. She has been here her entire career, first in Austin and then in New Mexico.
Our state is very diverse, and changing in its demographics. We are proud of the fact that our name reflects that.
So get used to it, folks. As of today, the phone will be answered “Walsh Gallegos.” The website is www.walshgallegos.com. Email addresses remain the same, Thanks Be to God!!
Same firm. Same excellent service. A new name for an exciting new day.
