McManis Faulkner celebrated its 45th anniversary on October 13, 2016. To honor the occasion, the firm hosted the local business and legal community in a celebration commemorating the firm’s success.
When James McManis left the District Attorney’s office 45 years ago, the firm began as a bare-boned operation with no staff of any kind and office rent of only $60 a month. William Faulkner, fresh out of law school, joined McManis in 1978. From these humble beginnings, McManis Faulkner has evolved into a leader in the Silicon Valley legal community. The success of the firm may be attributed largely to its steadfast commitment to superior client service, diversity in its professionals, the creation of a collegial work environment, and active involvement in the community.
