About our Firm


Our Team

Lavelle & Finn, LLP has thrived by taking an individualized approach to working with our clients and building our firm. Our clients benefit from our high-touch atmosphere and enjoy having the members of our team know who they are and truly care about their individual needs. Our team has the right mix of attorneys, paralegals and administrative staff, providing our clients with expertise, knowledge and experience without massive overhead or international affiliates pushing us to provide esoteric specialties. We understand and respond to our clients’ needs and ensure each step of the process is dedicated to protecting their families and their wealth.

We know our clients expect excellence, but come to us to reduce their financial burden, not to increase it. Lavelle & Finn, LLP has succeeded because of our ability to combine creativity in complex legal matters with superb business acumen and financial analysis. We work tirelessly to ensure our ideas are ahead of the curve. At the same time, we are constantly analyzing our processes and procedures to maximize efficiency. We believe that timely service and reasonable fees make us stand out among our peers.

Our practice deals with sensitive, personal information, and our clients can rest assured that we strictly and carefully preserve client confidentiality. For both our profession overall and our firm, confidentiality is a hallmark of our work. From the briefest conversations held with our attorneys to work papers and memos, every document and communication with us is kept strictly confidential.

We are legal professionals and trusted advisors. Many of our clients work with our team proactively to determine the tax implications of proposed transactions or business decisions. We are happy to provide advice on the financial implications of business formation and restructuring, partnership and shareholder agreements, real estate transactions, wealth preservation and trust planning.

We succeed when our clients succeed. We work to understand our clients’ individual needs and goals, and aid them in achieving their dreams of building their businesses and providing for their families. It is truly an honor to serve our clients.
