We work hard to serve our clients, doing it with the support of the firm and enjoying the people I work with is very important.  GM is also Mansfield Rule Certified and involved in ESG reporting/compliance, and this culture of inclusion and advancement throughout the firm and with the firm’s clients truly stood out for me – I wanted to be part of a great firm that cares about things that matter to my clients and me,” said Ms. Purcaro.

Ms. Ferro has an extensive background representing local, national, and global companies in commercial litigation on both the plaintiff and defense side.

“I have been working with Kelly Purcaro for nine years and we teamed up nearly three years ago to work on the same matters together,” added Ms. Ferro. “She and I joined Greenspoon Marder as a team because of, amongst other things, the national platform, stellar reputation, and dedication to diversity and inclusion.  The team at Greenspoon Marder made me feel comfortable and confident that this firm was the right place for me and my future.  I will be able to better counsel and represent my clients because of the depth of knowledge and support afforded by Greenspoon Marder.”

“We are delighted to welcome both Kelly and Kory Ann to the firm and to our distinguished Litigation practice group.
