Yes, the unimaginable is happening. Cellino & Barnes partnership is on the rocks. Which begets the question: who will be granted custody of the jingle and the phone number?
Ross Cellino, Jr., is suing his law partner Stephen Barnes to dissolve their Buffalo, NY-based personal injury law firm, which is famous for its billboards and infectious “Don’t Wait, Call 8” jingle. The firm employs 70 lawyers and 300 staff members, who work in Buffalo and other offices throughout New York state and California.
Documents associated with the case remain sealed and it remains unclear why Mr. Cellino filed to dissolve the firm. Terry Connors is representing Mr. Cellino.
According to a statement issued by Cellino & Barnes: “Mr. Barnes and the firm plan to aggressively oppose the dissolution papers filed by Mr. Cellino. However, we reiterate that regardless of outcome, the firm will continue to do business in the many markets we serve.”
