A Westchester-based law firm has opened an office in Suffolk County.
Fullerton Beck, an insurance defense firm in White Plains, has opened an office at 105 Maxess Road in Melville. The firm also has an office in North Haven, Connecticut.
In Melville, Jason Aaron, a partner who has been with the firm since it was founded in 2018, will serve as the managing partner in the new office. Attorneys who were previously based in Westchester but live on Long Island or Queens, will also work out of the Melville location.
“The new office allows us to attract skilled attorneys interested in working for us but not willing to commute to White Plains,” Katrine Beck, a founding partner of Fullerton Beck, said in a written statement. “Furthermore, the proximity to our clients on Long Island will enable us to better service them.”
“In addition, we are thrilled to give Jason the opportunity to further grow as a lawyer and as a leader,” Eileen Fullerton, a co-founder and managing partner of the firm, said in a written statement.
“He has already demonstrated his abilities time and time again, which is how he earned his promotion to partner and now managing partner in only five years,” Fullerton added. We are excited and optimistic about this next chapter in his career.”
A woman-owned firm, Fullerton Beck serves insurers throughout the country and their insureds and individual clients throughout the tri-state area. The has 24 attorneys, according to its website.
