“This new location will help us to better serve our current and future clients in Montgomery County,” stated Chris Sherer, managing partner of the firm. “Although I will be the main point of contact at the new location, a client who retains our firm actually retains the entire firm and has at their disposal all of the expertise and resources that the firm can bring to bear upon their legal problem. In other words, through our Hillsboro office, Montgomery County residents will have access to every attorney at our main office in Springfield.”
