If you are searching for a job with a law firm, it would be helpful to know how to pronounce the name.

Help is available. Georgetown Law's career services office has unveiled its new Law Firm Pronunciation Guide, according to Legal Blog Watch and the Wall Street Journal Law Blog.

If you took some French courses, they won’t help with some law firm pronunciations. The name of the troubled law firm in the news is “dew-ee and luh-buff,” while the second name in Miller & Chevalier is pronounced “chev-uh-leer.”
