James Johnston, President & Chief Executive Officer of Post & Schell, P.C. “As the construction industry continues to grow, companies see increasing legal complexity surrounding related litigation/arbitration, contracts, and bid disputes, among other areas. The breadth and depth of experience in our Group, and our ability to serve clients throughout the mid-Atlantic states, positions us to grow with our clients in the coming years.”
Ms. Wilenzik marks the fifth Principal added to the Firm’s Construction Group as the Firm’s construction and infrastructure sector clients continue to see growth in demand, and have a parallel need for additional legal services.

“I am excited to join Post & Schell at a time of growth for the Firm’s clients, as well as the Construction Group and Firm overall,” said Ms. Wilenzik. “I look forward to collaborating with my new colleagues to help meet existing client demand, as well as to expand the Firm’s client base in construction and other industries.”
In addition to her construction law practice, Ms. Wilenzik is also a member of Post & Schell’s Higher Education Practice Group and Commercial Litigation Practice Group.
