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.

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