On May 1, 1912, George Donworth, a federal judge, and Elmer Todd, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, agreed to form a law firm that today has grown to become Perkins Coie. We celebrate the firm's 100th Anniversary by saying thank you to clients, lawyers, staff, colleagues and friends in all the communities we serve.
