THE CAVANAGH LAW FIRM was founded in September of 1999 by a core group of attorneys who had been practicing with the 40-year old law firm of O'Connor, Cavanagh, Anderson, Killingsworth and Beshears. This select group of attorneys from a number of practice areas shared a vision of forming a firm that would continue to abide by the principles of hard work, quality, integrity and superior client service espoused by the Firm's namesake, Harry Cavanagh. As a group, the attorneys possess a wealth of experience and expertise in their chosen areas of practice. They include bar certified specialists in a variety of practice areas, and a number of firm attorneys have received an AV rating by Martindale Hubbell, the highest such rating available to any individual lawyer, and have been named to Chambers USA, Southwest Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America.
