On August 12, we gathered here to celebrate the 96th birthday of our senior partner, Richard W. Dearborn. The event took place at our office because that is where Mr. Dearborn has spent almost every workday since joining the firm in 1952.

Mr. Dearborn has devoted his career to providing exemplary service to individuals, banks and corporations, both small and large. Although his direct client responsibilities have lessened, he continues to provide us with guidance and inspiration. Mr. Dearborn exemplifies the very best of the legal profession. We wish him continued good health, and many more days in the office, during his 97th year.
