Mary Salamone Receives Two Prestigious Honors for Her Legal Work
Mary Salamone, a partner in the Irvine office of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (AALRR), received two significant honors this month. First, she was selected into the Fellowship of the Construction Lawyers Society of America (CLSA). The CLSA is an invitation-only international honorary society of preeminent attorneys specializing in construction law. Attorneys selected as Fellows must have proven records of excellence and accomplishment in construction law practice, as well as outstanding ethical reputations.
Second, Ms. Salamone was included in the Chambers USA Guide. This prestigious guide ranks the nation’s leading firms and lawyers, based upon thousands of in-depth interviews with clients, attorneys, and third-party experts, conducted by the largest research team of its kind. Ms. Salamone was recognized for her individual contributions to the construction law practice and named to the Third Band of the Chambers USA Guide’s practitioner rankings. She has been included in the Guide for many years. According to the Guide, “Mary Salamone draws praise for her broad-based construction practice, which includes both contentious and non-contentious matters.” Chambers USA also honored AALRR’s construction law practice with a Band Three ranking. The Chambers USA Guide states that AALRR “fields significant transactional and litigation capabilities” and “stands out for its expert representation of clients such as administrative agencies and school districts while also handling a wide range of private sector work for contractors and owners.”
Ms. Salamone states: “I have devoted my entire career, close to three decades, to the practice of construction law. It is an honor to be recognized by both CLSA and Chambers USA for the quality of my work and my ethical standards.”
Ms. Salamone has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of construction projects and disputes on behalf of owners, designers, and contractors. She has worked on numerous projects, including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, University of Phoenix Stadium (home to the Arizona Cardinals), Middle Harbor Redevelopment - Port of Long Beach, and Aladdin Hotel and Casino (now Planet Hollywood), and has handled over a billion dollars in claims.
