In 1992 I sent numerous job inquiries to Washington, D.C. law firms. Most of the firms responded; most of the responses were written by support personnel. Manatt Phelps responded with a letter from the firm's managing partner, David H. Larry, Esq. I sent several subsequent letters to Mr. Larry. David H. Larry was the law partner of Joseph diGenova, Esq., former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who was in private practice in 1992. I have sent several letters and email messages to Mr. diGenova over the years.
