A Message From Jill Metz

In my 39 years of work in the law, I have had triumphs for my clients and losses. I have seen prejudice and great acts of courage. Every year that has gone by, I have been proud to be a lawyer on the side of people fighting for equality. I have been moved by my clients’ courage to step up to a challenge.

A challenge is what we now face with a country greatly divided not only by wealth and region, but also by the vision of America and who the people are that make up America.

Wise from our years in the law and a knowledge of history, my firm will strive to protect you as we continue to stand for the principles that founded our country: Justice, Liberty, and Equality for all.
