Dallas lawyers Marcos Ronquillo and Jose Gonzalez, who have known each other since 1971 and practiced together for decades, joined Friedman & Feiger as partners on Nov. 17.
Separately, Forrest Smith joined Friedman & Feiger on Oct. 1 as a senior partner.
Ronquillo and Gonzalez came from Beirne, Maynard & Parsons’ Dallas office, and Smith had been working at Ryan Law Firm in Dallas.
Ronquillo said he joined Friedman & Feiger because it offered him opportunity to do work for some “key clients” and also focus energy on public service. He said he is considering a run for public office—reportedly for mayor of Dallas—and he filed paperwork designating Smith as his campaign treasurer if he does so.
