      "I am excited about joining Highbridge," said William Eigen, CFA. "The reputation of the firm, its entrepreneurial culture and partnership with JPMorgan will allow me to use the full range of my investment experience to the benefit of our clients."

      Before joining Fidelity in 1994, Mr. Eigen was a pension investment consultant at CIGNA. He holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation and is a member of the CFA Institute and the Bond Analysts Society of Boston and serves on the Board of Directors for the Boston Security Analysts Society.

      • bat rastards..

    • In regard to market crdibility and accompanying higher prices, it makes it much more easier and affordable to make further

    • Aiken is a pretty small town too, but not small town like a lot of places in South Carolina. We have the Savanah River Site right outside of town, a large federal nuclear facility, and Aiken is just a 15 minutes drive from Augusta, Ga, home of the Masters.

      My specialization is Social Security disability; and in particular appeals of those cases to federal district court. I feel pretty comfortable saying I do more of those than anyone else in the state. Tooting my own horn just a little, I just received the first favorable Fourth Circuit CA Social Security decision that the court has issued in 2 years. They are very conservative up there at the court of appeals.

      I also handle W/C and PI cases, but it is a relatively small part of my practice as compared to the Social Security.

      I have been practicing 10 yrs and started my own firm in 1997.

    • Daniel, looks like you are kicking Mr. Barhart over and over. Fine, fine lawyering. IMO

    • I will try to get hooked up with yahoo messenger and look you up sometime soon! Maybe sometime during the week next week.

    • LOL. I'm 35. Look at the date I last updated my profile!

    • LOL. I have MSN messenger. I've never used yahoo. What type of law you practice?

    • You should download yahoo IM. I have a whole bunch of reported case-law in NM on a variety of topics from products liability to municipal to regulatory. I also have an email on yahoo you under my alias. Drop me a line. We could trade war stories. Anyhow, thanks for the reply.

    • LOL. Thanks. It's Jo Anne Barnhart, the Commissioner of Social Security. I guess you pulled up some cases on Westlaw?

      I do not have many published cases, but yea, I have had literally hundreds of USDC cases against the Commissioner and win about 95 % of the time.

      Shootin' fish in a barrel, it is...

    • Aiken- how right you are.

      (BTW- do you have IM? I'm also an attorney in NM-26 years of practice. I kick ass and take no names very smoothly, I might add)
