Women talking in office

“What I like most about my practice in Lebanon and St. Johnsbury is that both offices have that small town feel, and I work with a lot of small start-up companies. At the same time, there are national and international businesses in the area, so I have a varied and exciting corporate and commercial practice. AND, I have a safe and nurturing community in which to raise my kids.”Mary Parent, Director, St. Johnsbury VT/Lebanon NH

“I found the best of both worlds – challenging, complex legal work in a region that is regularly recognized as one of the best places to live in the country.”Jennifer McDonald, Director, Burlington VT
