In 1980 Bruce Friedman and our former member, Jack Olive, founded
the firm. Donald McCubbin came aboard in 1991, and over the
next five years Philip Spalding, Keith Bilter, Michael Roosevelt
and George Montgomery arrived. All of them left partnerships
in large San Francisco law firms to join our boutique, specialized
firm serving individual clients.
Bruce Friedman retired from
the practice of law in June 2015.
