SONOMA, CA – February 6, 2023 – The combination of two local law firms, Haeuser, Valluzzo & Piasta (HVP) and Wright & Supple (W&S) expands HVP’s services to include employment law counsel through a joint effort that redefines collaboration. HVP partners Mary Piasta and Tony Valluzzo continue to reinvent the law firm business model, working with W&S, a women-owned employment law firm led by Mary Wright and Oriet Cohen-Supple. As transformational change continues to rock the legal industry, this innovative approach offers clients the legal services they need across the full spectrum of business and employment law, while controlling costs to keep legal fees reasonable.
HVP’s one-stop concierge services focus on business, real estate, estate planning and probate administration with an emphasis on legacy and growth for a broad range of legal needs makes sound business sense. Expanding its core practice to include employment law resonates with entrepreneurs, established enterprises, and the family-owned businesses that predominate in our local communities. Tony Valluzzo notes, “We strive to offer our clients the concierge service they have come to expect across the full range of business needs.” Mary Piasta adds, “The collaboration with W&S gives our clients access to sophisticated employment law counsel across the full spectrum of California business.”
