A prominent law firm has moved into Easton.
Norris McLaughlin said it recently opened an office at 205 South Seventh St. in Easton across from the Northampton County Courthouse.
The firm has been handling more and more client activity in the Easton area, said Dolores Laputka, a managing partner of the firm.
In addition, some of the firm’s lawyers are from Easton and Nazareth and work with local organizations in the area, she added. The firm wanted to make easier for them to work with those organizations.
“This is the first time our firm has had its own office in Easton,” Laputka said.
The number of employees in the space will vary but it will mainly be for support staff, she added.
The firm’s title service, ABE Settlement Services LLC, which offers services for residential and commercial real estate and mortgage lending, also opened at the same time in the office.
The firm serves clients in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Aside from Easton, Norris McLaughlin has offices in Allentown and Pennsburg; New Jersey offices in Bridgewater, Short Hills and Montclair; and two offices in New York City.
The firm has 268 employees overall. Of those, 127 are attorneys, Laputka said.
