Here is what some of our employees are saying about HWA:


"HWA was my first full time job. Knowing little about the legal industry, I was initially hired on as an overflow typist. I found the work interesting and challenging. Through education and on-the-job training, I was able to advance my skills and knowledge. Some 25-plus years later, I am still doing work that I enjoy and feel very grateful to be a part of the HWA family."

- Kathy Conn, Certified Paralegal
  Joined HWA in 1985


"I enjoy many things about HWA, but high on the list is a wonderful support staff and colleagues who make it a pleasure to come to work every day. I love the "small firm" feel in a relatively large firm, and I appreciate the excellent reputation we have among our peers, the judiciary and with our clients. There is always something new and challenging, never a dull moment to say the least!"

"The generosity of the partners never ceases to amaze me. They, along with our of counsel attorneys and associates, make up the group of sharp attorneys here who are not only savvy but also very approachable. I truly feel it has been a privilege to be at HWA for over 10 years!"
