Brief History: The law firm of McMahon & Grow traces its history back over 150 years beginning with the great-grandfather of Richard H. McMahon in the mid 1850's. It is a combination of two law firms which merged in the 1960's - Grow and Grow and the Law Offices of Richard H. McMahon.

George B. Grow (2015-2009) and Richard H. McMahon (retired in 2008) were the principal founders of the merged law firm of McMahon and Grow. Honorable John W. Grow was a partner of the firm until his election to the New York State Supreme Court in 1982. Judge Grow retired from the Supreme Court in 2010, and became counsel to the firm. Honorable Richard D. Simons retired from the New York State Court of Appeals in 1997 and became counsel to the firm. David C. Grow joined the firm as an Associate Attorney in 1973, became an Assistant Corporation Counsel and Corporation Counsel in the City of Rome, and after leaving that position, became a partner in the firm. Julie Grow Denton joined the firm in 2002, after serving several years in the federal court system, including confidential law clerk to the late Honorable Richard Cardamone of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Sarah C. Hughes joined the firm as an Associate Attorney in 2015.
