 Mike McQueen is a former partner and managing partner of the firm who has retired and is now serving in an Of Counsel role. When he is not at his “Westside office” at El Paso Country Club, Mike will be around to use his almost 45 years of experience to provide guidance to younger attorneys and to make sure there are no leftovers from firm pot luck luncheons. He is grateful to the many clients who trusted him with their labor and employment needs and to the outstanding attorneys in the firm’s Labor and Employment Department with whom he has collaborated, celebrated, and commiserated over the years. While Mike is no longer available to handle your legal matters, they are ready to assist and he would be delighted to introduce you to them.
