About Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.

Snell & Wilmer is a full-service law firm with more than 400 attorneys practicing in nine offices throughout the western United States and Mexico. Snell & Wilmer traces its origins to 1938, when Mark Wilmer joined Frank L. Snell, Jr., Riney Salmon, and Charles Strouss, who had practiced together in Phoenix since 1934. Snell frequently recounted the search that led to his partnership with Mr. Wilmer; because Snell was "snowed under" by work and needed help, he consulted the three members of Maricopa County's Superior Court to identify the best trial lawyer in the state and each named Wilmer, whom he had not yet met. In the 1989, Snell & Wilmer began its expansion outside of Phoenix, opening a Tuscon office and then shortly thereafter merging with Tucson's largest firm, Bilby & Shoenhair. The 1990s saw the firm expanded outside of the Grand Canyon State, opening offices in Orange County, California, and Salt Lake City, Utah. By 2010 Snell & Widner had rounded out its current roster of offices expanding to Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Reno and Los Cabos, Mexico.
