Staff Engagements

Three very wise men proposed to three very intelligent and lovely women during September 2012. Considering the type of law practiced here, we are bursting at the seems and have been grinning from ear to ear upon hearing the joyous sounds from the West Wing (a/k/a law clerk office) with news that all three of the firm’s 2012-2013 law clerks recently became engaged:

Congratulations to Inna Goykhman, who said “yes” over spaghetti and meatballs on September 19, 2012!

Congratulations to Casey Rose Shevin, who said “yes” on September 22, 2012 during a weekend at the beach to celebrate their seven-year anniversary!

Congratulations to LaDonna Harriott, who said “yes” at 30th Street Station on September 29, 2012 (not that there was any pressure on Andrew, who, clearly, had been planning his proposal for quite some time!)
