A name partner of one of the biggest law firms in Washington County has joined Lynch Law Group’s new Southpointe office.

Roger J. Ecker is now a member of Lynch’s Litigation, Corporate and Oil and Gas practice groups.

His former firm, Peacock Keller & Ecker LLP, which tied for No. 40 among the region’s largest law firms on the Business Times’ list, has shortened its name to Peacock Keller LLP, confirmed Andrew Chumney, assistant managing partner.

Ecker’s last day was Aug. 1.

“We respect Roger’s decision to join Lynch Law Group and wish him the best moving forward,” Chumney said.

Cranberry-based Lynch ranked 50th on the annual list. Its Southpointe office officially opens on Monday with five lawyers. It is managed by Charles Hadad, a partner and chair of the firm’s Estates and Trusts practice group.

Ecker has served as president of the Washington County Bar Association and is a past president of the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Washington County.
