For Immediate Release
Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder has announced that it has admitted four attorneys into its partnership. The move became effective Jan. 1.
The firm welcomed Michael J. Crocenzi, Derek P. Dissinger, Stephanie E. DiVittore and William J. Zee as partners. All four received unanimous approval from the current ownership group, Barley Snyder managing partner Jeff Lobach said.
Crocenzi has been a strong member of the firm’s growing litigation group, specifically in the area of employment litigation. Crocenzi is a York County resident and in 2018, he was named to the board of directors at LifePath Christian Ministries in York and at the York County Bar Foundation.
In addition to being a member of the firm’s Real Estate and Finance & Creditors’ Rights practice groups since his arrival at the firm in 2013, Dissinger served as the driving force behind the firm’s formation of a Hospitality Industry Group, and then was elevated to the chair of the group later in the year. He is the chair of the firm’s Practice Excellence Champions and he also was named the to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list in 2018.
DiVittore’s diverse litigation practice includes work in the areas of banking, tax assessment, land use and commercial workout, including work as special counsel. She is a valued member of our Harrisburg office that opened in early 2018.
Zee has been at Barley Snyder since 2015 and in that time, he’s worked to advance the profile of the firm’s Education Practice Group, a group he took over as chair in 2017. In 2018, the Lancaster County resident helped produce a firm video empowering clients on the merits of trauma-informed education practices.
Lobach said the group admitted to the partnership has consistently demonstrated the type of leadership which the firm values as part of its mission to be the leading regional law firm.
“People like Mike, Derek, Stephanie and Bill are the reason that we have the reputation as one of the strongest and fastest-growing law firms in central Pennsylvania,” he said. “They epitomize the kind of work ethic and professionalism we seek out in attorneys.”
