Recently St. Joseph became the latest location for the law firm of Kreis, Enderle, Hudgins, & Borsos P.C.
The firm opened a new office at 800 Port St., St. Joseph, and has begun recruiting attorneys to work there. The 2,600-square-foot office underwent extensive renovations including removing walls to create larger office space for the law firm.
Brian McMahon who joined Kreis Enderle in July to help establish the St. Joseph office says he has been interviewing attorneys for the past two weeks and hopes to hire two shortly. He anticipates four to five will be working in the St. Joseph office by the end of 2013. When fully staffed the office may have up to eight attorneys there in the next five years.
McMahon, of Royalton Township, has practiced law for 21 years and been a partner in another St. Joseph law firm. He says one of the attorneys he hires is likely to have at least 20 years experience as well, while younger associates also will be asked to work with the firm.
The new St. Joseph office gives individuals and businesses in Southwest Michigan greater access to a full-service law firm. Business law, family law, criminal defense, residential and commercial real estate, health and taxation law are some of the areas in which the firm will be able represent clients.
Kreis Enderle has been serving the St. Joseph and Benton Harbor area from its Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids offices and decided to make the commitment to the area by opening an office in St. Joseph.
McMahon says the personal, positive approach the firm takes to practicing law is seen in its commitment to the communities in which it has offices. Its attorneys contribute their time to numerous civic and business organizations, as McMahon already does as a member of the Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce and the Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce.
"Kreis Enderle's commitment to the community is important to us and the best way to show that commitment is to put up an office and have a physical presence rather than try to serve it from afar," says McMahon.
Kreis Enderle has 32 attorneys and has been providing legal services for more than 35 years throughout West Michigan, with offices in Battle Creek, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.
