McDonald Carano proudly thanks Karyna Armstrong, Adam Hosmer-Henner, Phil Mannelly, Lance McKenzie, Jane Susskind, and Katrina Weil for participating in the Lawyer in the Library program hosted by the Washoe County Law Library. This team of McDonald Carano attorneys was recognized at a February luncheon that acknowledged all attorneys who volunteered their services to the Program throughout 2023. The monthly Lawyer in the Library program offers unrepresented litigants the opportunity to speak with a lawyer free of charge. The program is made possible through the volunteer efforts of local attorneys.
