About the Firm: History

The firm was founded in 1984 as Teeters & Harvey, when Ralph Teeters and Chip Harvey left their respective firms (Reed Smith and Ballard Spahr) to see if the world was ready for a boutique trust and estate practice.

Those were the early days of the technology revolution, at least insofar as law firms were concerned. Micro computers were just coming into their own, and the theory was that technology would allow a small firm to compete on a equal footing with the “big guys” and would enable it to provide trust and estate services at the same sophisticated level but in a more personalized setting for individuals and their families.

Over the years, the firm added additional members and is now known as Teeters Harvey Marrone & Kaier LLP, reflecting the arrival in 2007 of Ed Kaier, formerly a partner at Hepburn Willcox, and in 2009, of Licia Año Marrone, who had been a senior vice president and regional trust manager for Wells Fargo Family Wealth. Thereafter, Megan O’Rourke, law clerk for a former Orphans’ Court Administrative Judge, came on board in 2015.
