McNamee Lochner has teamed up with the American Red Cross to sponsor a building-wide blood drive on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017. The blood drive will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the 6th floor of the 677 Building.

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. The American Red Cross has recently announced a severe winter blood shortage and is issuing an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to make a donation appointment now and help save patient lives. Eligible blood donors of all blood types are needed to strengthen the community’s blood supply.

Please consider making an appointment to donate or just walk in.”

Bruce J. Wagner, chair of McNamee’s Matrimonial and Family Law practice, was recently admitted to the American College of Family Trial Lawyers.

Formed in 1993, the American College of Family Trial Lawyers (AFCTL) comprises a select group of 100 family law trial lawyers from across the United States. Members of this group are some of the best trial lawyers in America, practicing sophisticated and complex family law and matrimonial matters both domestically and abroad with issues ranging from dissolution of marriage (divorce), paternity, palimony, child abduction, and domestic torts. Diplomates, all members of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, are chosen based upon their recognized litigation skills and courtroom abilities.

Of the six attorneys admitted into the ACFTL this year, Wagner was the only member also on a top 25 list for Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
