Like most successful and effective lawyers, Mishan Wroe is focused and smart and she never gives up. And she’s tougher than she looks. Her pleasant, engaging manner gives her a distinctive advantage over anyone foolish enough to make the wrong assumption about her determination and mettle. Those who underestimate her generally come to regret it.

Educated at some of the most exclusive and demanding universities in the nation, Mishan excels at producing nuanced analyses of complex legal issues.  She has been lauded as an exceptional appellate lawyer, both for her writing and her oral advocacy.  But it is her toughness, her tenacity and her dedication, layered on top of her brilliance that inspire clients to call upon her to be their trusted representative in the legal arena.

Mishan has represented everyone from Fortune 500 Companies in toxic tort and catastrophic injury cases to victims of domestic abuse and she’s done it in some of the roughest courthouses around. She loves being a lawyer and loves the challenge of a difficult environment or a difficult case or, as in some cases, both.  Her willingness to take on tough assignments has allowed her to amass more real-life litigation experience than most lawyers with far more tenure. She puts that experience to good use on behalf of all her clients and looks forward to expanding her repertoire even further.
