IRVINE, Calif., August 30, 2007 – Luce Forward Hamilton & Scripps LLP today announced the opening of its first office in Orange County. The firm’s growing real estate practice and increased clientele in the Orange County area prompted Luce Forward to open its sixth office location. The new office is located in Irvine, Calif. Luce Forward’s other offices are located throughout California in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Carmel Valley/Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe.
John C. Murphy, George C. Rudolph and Joseph S. Stuart, the firm’s newest partners, are opening the Orange County office.

It is expected that by the beginning of next year, the Luce Forward Orange County office will have between 10 to 15 attorneys focusing primarily in the firm’s business, litigation and real estate practices.
“We are thrilled to begin working in Orange County and to provide the hallmark services for which Luce Forward is so well-known,” said Robert Bell, managing partner of Luce Forward. “This Orange County office now allows us to give our clients much more efficient service throughout Southern California’s mid-section, from the ocean straight on through the Inland Empire.”
