Blank Rome Welcomes Aboard Michelle Gervais
Blank Rome LLP has announced today they are welcoming Michelle Gervais as partner in their Tampa office. The firm, 500 strong internationally, has recently seen the creation of an office in Pittsburgh where four of Gervais' former coworkers opened things up, before reuniting with her in Florida.
Here she alludes to her desire to continue work similar to what she did before, when working at Duane Morris LLP, where she served as the Women's Initiative Programming Chair for the South Florida office as well as Pro Bono Chair for the Miami office. Such is her passion for working with children and the victims of domestic violence that she received the Dade County Bar Association's commendation for long-term dedication to the pro bono community.
Nevertheless, Blank Rome is bringing her aboard more directly for her vast experience representing large national and international banks, with related work in subprime mortgage lenders, and various claims and issues in finance litigation.
"We are thrilled to welcome Michelle to the Firm," said Alan J. Hoffman, Chairman and Managing Partner of Blank Rome. "Her vast experience and leadership skills will enhance our nationally respected Consumer Finance group, our expanding presence in Florida, and our Firm overall."
Gervais received her J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law and her B.S. from Central Michigan University. Since then she has gained a wide array of experience in real estate, matrimonial, and commercial litigation.
Summary: Blank Rome LLP has announced today they are welcoming Michelle Gervais as partner in their Tampa office.
