Often referred to as "The Flaster Family," many of the firm's attorneys and support staff excel in and enjoy a variety of extracurricular activities outside of the courtroom. From running and skiing to community involvement and philanthropy, our employees do it all, and do it well.
Throughout the year, the firm's social committee plans fun events for the firm's employees to partake in. This spring, FG employees made their way to Philadelphia for a Mixology Event at the Aqua Vitae Institute for a hands-on cocktail making class with some of the area's best bartenders. In addition to learning how to make specialty drinks, attendees were taught unique bartending techniques, how to pair drinks with food, ratios needed to make a drink taste great and much more!

Fly, Eagles, Fly!
FG employees have no shortage of Eagles spirit! The firm held tailgate parties the Friday afternoon before the championship game and the Super Bowl to celebrate this historic season.
