We know the language of the law, but what’s more, we understand the importance of listening.

Community Leaders

A Community Leader for 117 Years.

When George W. Waller opened the doors of his law firm in 1895, Burlington was already a thriving community with a population of 2,043 residents. For the next forty years, G.W. Waller would contribute greatly to the development of Burlington. In addition to enjoying an extensive legal practice, he spent a great deal of time and energy improving Burlington’s business and civic communities. He was instrumental in the creation of Memorial Hospital, started the public library, and played a leading part in the establishment of the Burlington National Bank. G.W. Waller’s commitment to the Burlington community has endured through his law firm. It has passed on to several partners and today it is known as Lloyd, Phenicie, Lynch, and Kelly, S.C. When Patrick Lloyd and R. William Phenicie joined the firm they took over where Waller left off as leaders in their profession and community. Pat and Bill gave immeasurable amounts of time and financial support for the betterment of the community. While Pat Lloyd and Bill Phenicie have since retired, their name and the tradition of the firm lives on in the dedicated and community-minded lawyers of Lloyd, Phenicie, Lynch, and Kelly, S.C.

With 117 years of community leadership standing behind the firm, Dennis Lynch, and Michael Kelly have continued the traditions of volunteerism, generosity and civic commitment started by G.W. Waller. Today our firm continues to honor its founders and retired partners’ highest ideals and dedication to the private practice of law.
