The national labor and employment law firm Constangy, Brooks, Smith and Prophete, LLP is excited to welcome four new attorneys across several offices.  

The Atlanta office recently welcomed senior counsel Cassandra Williams to the firm’s workers’ compensation practice group. Williams, who received her J.D. from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, is joining private practice after 15 years in government and in-house counsel positions.

Constangy’s Denver office has added associate Renee Sheyko to its growing employment law team. Sheyko, who received her J.D. from the University of Denver, previously worked at an Alaska-based civil litigation firm.

The Los Angeles office welcomed David Yudelson as senior counsel. Yudelson, who divides his practice between employment litigation and benefits/ERISA litigation, comes to Constangy from Koley Jessen PC in Omaha, Nebraska. He received his J.D. from Creighton University.

The Minneapolis office has added special counsel Wagma Gharwal to Constangy’s national immigration team. Gharwal received her J.D. from Hamline University and has more than three years of immigration law experience.

Constangy’s growth continues the firm’s focus on top-down diversity. More than 75 percent of firm associates and 42 percent of partners are women or minorities, earning the firm recognition from organizations including Vault.Com, the National Law Journal and Working Mother magazine.
