Monaco Cooper Lamme & Carr PLLC opened at 1881 Western Ave. in Guilderland in January 2020 just before the pandemic shutdown. The law firm, with four partners, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 12. “We left the culture of large law firms and downtown overhead behind us intentionally, wanting to be part of a community that would allow us to grow our business responsibly and in a way that could not only benefit our clients, but that would be attractive to new clients,” said partner Adam Cooper. The four partners are, from left, Cooper, Brain Carr, Jacob Lamme, and Mackenzie Monaco.
