The expansion of DP&F’s Santa Rosa office will help it serve the changing needs of all of its clients in a muscular, forward-thinking way.”

As part of the expansion, Gregory J. Walsh has become a Director and will head the firm’s Labor and Employment Group. Three other highly experienced attorneys have joined DP&F in Santa Rosa:

    •         Susan M. Teel joins as Senior Counsel for the firm’s Wealth Management Group. Ms. Teel has specialized in estate planning, trust administration, probate and tax matters since 1976.
  •         Delphine S. Adams joins as Senior Counsel in the Litigation Group. Ms. Adams has been practicing law since 1986, specializing in litigation and real estate matters.
  •         Jennifer D. Phillips joins DP&F as an Associate in the firm’s Labor & Employment and Litigation Groups. Ms. Phillips has practiced law since 1994, specializing in labor and employment, litigation and real estate matters.

 At the same time, DP&F announced today the departures of five attorneys.
