Russell, Krafft & Gruber’s team is committed not just to helping our clients but to supporting the health of the entire legal community. We thank these folks for stepping up to the plate through the Lancaster Bar Association (LBA) for 2021:

The LBA is a great example of how vibrant a legal community can be. It provides more than just a place for lawyers to organize.
