The law firm started in the early 1990's with my Dad, who was the former Mayor of Pittsburgh and County Commissioner. And then I had gone to law school with Dwayne Woodruff the Pittsburgh Steeler. We put together the law firm of Woodruff & Flaherty in the early 1990's. It was built in Shadyside, a neighborhood in the City of Pittsburgh. It was really a strong neighborhood legal practice with some pretty powerful people behind it. We had some great clients and we had some great outcomes, and we were able to slowly grow the firm. Unfortunately my Dad passed away. Then Dwayne went on to become a Judge. By the 2000's Woodruff & Flaherty transitioned into what is now Flaherty Fardo. We have taken that tradition and we continue to build upon it. We have strong client relationships today, and hopefully we are going to have stronger client relationships tomorrow.
