When Joe Manko and several colleagues headed for the door of their Center City law firm 20 years ago, they were taking a big chance.
Their practice area, environmental law, was new and untested. What's more, they depended on referrals from their old employer. Turns out, creating a new firm was a smart move.
Their clients followed them, and the firm, Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, L.L.P., found new ones. The firm has grown from eight to 28 lawyers, and two engineers who provide technical advice on complex environmental issues.
