Formed in 2009 by Co-Managing Partners Glen Waldman and Eleanor Barnett, Waldman Barnett has built a strong reputation as a go-to litigation boutique for complex cases. The distinguished team joining them includes Partners Jeffrey Lam and Michael Sayre, Of Counsel Marlon Weiss, Senior Associate Benjamin Keime, Associate Julie Levine, Paralegal Mae Van Gils, Litigation Specialist Teresa Macias, Legal Assistant Nancy Torres-Curiel, Office Manager Tania Waldman and Administrative Assistant Lian Sirven.

“It was very apparent early in our discussions that this was a great fit for our people,” added Barnett. “We intend to add more talented lawyers and professionals across practice areas in Miami and throughout South Florida, and look forward to a bright future of growth and new opportunities with Armstrong Teasdale.”
