Firm Details

Since its founding in May of 1984, Facey Goss & McPhee P.C. (formerly Kenlan, Schwiebert, Facey & Goss, P.C.) has assumed a leading position in the New England legal community. The firm offers its clients a full range of legal services with an emphasis on quality of work product, competitive cost and an overriding commitment to client service at a sophistication level comparable to urban law firms.

The firm was founded by two established general business/land use law practitioners in the Rutland, Vermont area, the general counsel of a major international corporation, a former First Assistant United States Attorney and an insurance defense litigation specialist. The firm presently has eight partners, four associates and one "Of Counsel" making it a mid-sized firm by Vermont standards.  Every one of our Vermont attorneys brings a wealth of professional experience in their respective practice areas, with a particular expertise on the intricacies of Vermont law.

Since its founding, our Vermont law firm has assumed a leading position in the New England community and has been recognized for our legal expertise and the dedication of our attorneys and staff. Our attorneys are also actively involved locally, participating in numerous professional and community organizations.

This focus has allowed our firm to establish itself as a leading legal resource in the Green Mountain State, and a reliable partner for many clients who have turned to us for their Vermont legal aid.
