FWY Celebrates Our Firm’s 20th Anniversary

FWY is pleased to be celebrating its 20th anniversary!  The firm was born on April 1, 1998 when Mike Flynn left the firm where he was then practicing and set up shop in his living room.  For the first month or so, the firm – then known as Flynn & Associates – consisted of Mike (and his hopes and dreams), a desk, a phone, a computer and a printer.  As the first few clients came aboard, the firm was able to move into a “real” office in downtown Boston, subleasing a small space from an already established firm.  After a pretty decent first year, during which several employees were brought aboard, the firm was able to acquire its own space on State Street in Boston, where it remained until 2004.  The firm then moved its headquarters to Crown Colony in Quincy, MA, where it remains to this day.  The firm has continued to grow ever since.  Lori Wirkus became partner in 2009, and the firm’s name was changed to Flynn & Wirkus.  The firm opened satellite offices in Buffalo and Philadelphia.  John Young became partner in 2012, and the firm took on its current name, FLYNN|WIRKUS|YOUNG.  More recently, additional satellites were opened in Franklin, MA (2016) and New Bedford, MA (2018).
