Kevin Lumpkin Featured in Vermont Bar Journal

Firm Principal Kevin Lumpkin was recently featured in the Vermont Bar Journal’s new segment, Choosing Vermont. The piece focuses on the personal stories of Vermont lawyers, in particular “what it is that brought some of us to this place and why it is the only place many of us would consider living and working.” In the piece, Kevin discusses why he chose to come to – and remain in – Vermont as a non-native of the state, and his experiences working within the Vermont bar. Kevin is a Vermont Bar Association board member and the current president of its Young Lawyers Division.

To view Kevin’s piece and learn more about lawyers who’ve chosen Vermont, access the Summer 2022 edition of the Vermont Bar Journal here.
