In 2016, Abes Baumann celebrated its 37th year helping injured workers and disabled veterans get the benefits they deserve. We welcomed more than a few new staffers. Catherine Balsamo and Alexis Glod head up the front of the office, welcoming clients and guests, performing intakes, and keeping things running smoothly. New secretaries Robin Hale and Sharon Driscoll have added to the efficiency and procedures of the office. Kathi Oles came on board to help our Veterans Benefits practice and has proved a seamless fit as a legal assistant. We also were fortunate to find an excellent new office manager in Holly Packy, who, among learning the procedures and tasks of her new job, also found the time to plan and coordinate a sprucing up of our office space.
We were fortunate to be able to sponsor a few charity events this year including Barbells for Boobs benefiting breast cancer and a couple of hard working veterans’ charities, such as The Ancient Order of Hibernians Veteran’s Affairs Committee.
Tom Baumann appeared before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to argue what could possibly be a game changing case concerning the legislature’s ability to delegate its authority.
Edward Abes received the Irvin Stander Memorial Award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association. This award is akin to a lifetime achievement award. We could not be prouder of Ed for this accomplishment.
As you can see it was an exciting 37th year here. And we look forward to another 37 serving you.
