Philadelphia Inquirer features Rawle & Henderson in its May 6 issue


The May 6, 2014 issue of The Philadelphia Inquirer included a feature story on Rawle & Henderson, recognizing it as the oldest law firm in the United States.

In “Looking back at 231 years of legal work: Rawle & Henderson in Philadelphia is considered the oldest U.S. law firm,” Inquirer reporter Chris Mondics takes an in-depth look at Rawle & Henderson and the firm’s ability to persevere over its long history.

Today the firm has offices in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia.
