SAN DIEGO -- Best Best & Krieger LLP is pleased to announce that the Walsh Law Firm, A.P.C. has joined BB&K effective April 1. Both firms are already well regarded for their Business and Trusts & Estates services, including trust and estate administration, and now they join together to provide clients access to a broader range and deeper bench of attorneys and other professionals.

  • Partner Joan M. Walsh, the founding shareholder of Walsh Law Firm
  • Of Counsel Christine Chacon
