The Law Firm

Established 2000


After having known each other for more than 10 years, Gina Joaquin and Todd Duncan together established the law firm Joaquin & Duncan, L.L.C., in January 2000, with offices originally downtown Fort Worth in the Bank One Tower.  Following the Tower's destruction by a tornado in March 2000, the firm moved to the center of the DFW-metroplex, where they now work with clients nationwide.
