"Dating back to 2010, our goal has been to grow to a state-wide firm that provides exceptional service to dynamic and growing companies throughout California. In keeping with our strategy, we have been open to growing in our current markets of Sacramento, San Francisco and Beverly Hills as well as looking at new areas that match the needs of our clients." said Michael Kvarme, Weintraub's managing shareholder. "Waldron & Bragg has a significant litigation practice and an exceptional reputation for their trial experience that will be an excellent addition to our existing practice. The combination of our firms represents our shared commitment to continually provide the highest quality legal services to our clients."

"We are very pleased to know that the firm is available to our Plan directors, and members, throughout the entire state of California." said long-time firm client, Rick Floyd, Plan Administrator for the California Law Enforcement Association, California Association of Professional Firefighters, and National Peace Officers and Firefighter's Benefit Association.

"Our clients have a need for expanded legal expertise in areas that Waldron & Bragg currently does not offer, and Weintraub brings these capabilities to the table with exceptional attorneys," said Gary Waldron, shareholder at Waldron & Bragg. "Weintraub is unique in that it provides the breadth and depth of services found at larger firms while providing the personal touches and responsiveness of a smaller one. This commitment to clients and service are at the core of each of our firms and will only make us stronger as one firm moving forward," said Sherry Bragg, managing shareholder at Waldron & Bragg.
