With a rich business background that included senior-level experience in strategic planning, finance, and law firm management, Mr. Abstone and Mr. Lalley developed a team of consultants who focus on delivering the exceptional, client-based, knowledge-backed service of its founders.

Since founding AbstoneLalley, Inc., Mr. Abstone has become a trusted source for law firms seeking guidance about their most crucial business decisions, particularly regarding growth strategy with lateral partners, practice groups, M&A strategy, senior-level non-attorney leadership, and succession planning. In recent years, Mr. Abstone has also become a nationally-recognized expert about diversity legal recruiting.
