Carney & Delany, LLP is an all business law firm...well, except when we're goofing around and then not so much. So let's say instead, our clients are all business...well, no some of them are individuals and some of them goof around too (some of them goof around a little too much, but that's what the attorney-client privilege is for). So let's just say we don't sue people. Well, we sue people who don't pay us...oh, and people any of us used to be married to. But that's a small, select, and at times overlapping, group. So there. We're not litigators. We're a business transactions and employment law firm. There that's it.

The firm was firmly started in February, 1994 by Jane Carney and Frank Delany, when they grew tired of the firms they used to be with and decided the world needed one more law firm and preferably one with an Irish name. One month later Teresa Rhyne joined the firm, just late enough to not be included in the firm name (she is still bitter about this; but as Frank and Jane are older they will die first and she will have her day). Curt Knudsen joined the firm as of counsel (no, none of us know what that means either) in 2002, way too late to be included in the firm name despite the obvious commercial appeal of his name (just think of the slogans--The Creme de l' creme of law firms? The cottage cheese of law firms? Well, so, no actually, not so much appeal). Richard Roth joined the firm in 2003 and while as a Brigadier Major General in the Air Force Reserves he could probably order his name included in the firm name, who is going to actually call a firm called Carney, Delany & Major General Roth? Besides Republicans.

So, now you know sort of what we do, when we started the firm and who joined when. Fascinating, isn't it? Surely, you want more of this titillating information.

Be warned though, photos are included and there's a reason we went into law and not, say, daytime soap opera acting.
