Beverly A. Block

Managing Member and Attorney At Law

University of Michigan, ’01; University of Pittsburgh School of Law, ’04

EXPERIENCE

Bev opened B&A in 2018 amidst a backdrop of diverse experience, including, working in a large international law firm, a mid-sized regional firm, and as a clerk for a federal judge. With this experience, Bev is committed to sustaining a firm whose hallmark is a deep investment in the success of its clients. Through years of experience, Bev has become adept at prosecuting and defending civil disputes in a variety of forums—including state and federal courts, private mediations, and AAA arbitration proceedings. Over the years, Bev has developed expertise in business disputes and employment-related matters. The defining feature of Bev’s practice is her deep relationship with her clients. There is no “one-off” engagement, and her relationships are not limited to her areas of expertise. Bev built B&A to provide approachable legal service to a wide-range of clientele, and she devotes her full self to managing those relationships. For Bev, being a lawyer has never been a 9-5 job, but is instead a lifestyle achieved through attentiveness, planning, and balance.
