In 1961, John F. Kennedy was President of the United States, IBM had an 81% share of the computer market, celebrities flocked to Miami Beach and talk show host Larry King started his career in Miami.
1961 also marked the founding of Richman Greer, P.A. Attorneys William Snow Frates and Peter Fay founded a firm strongly committed to excellence in the legal profession and the highest level of community service. Attorneys Robert Floyd and Ray Pearson, both circuit court judges in 1961, joined the firm shortly thereafter. A half century later, the beliefs of these four pillars of the legal community remain the driving principles of the firm. (Pictured from left to right: William S. Frates, Ray H. Pearson, Peter T. Fay & Robert L. Floyd)
In honor of its 50th Anniversary, Richman Greer was presented with special proclamations from the City of Miami, City of West Palm Beach and City of Coral Gables.
In a ceremony with attorneys and staff at the Firm’s Miami office on May 2, 2011, City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado recognized the firm’s extraordinary commitment to community service.
City of West Palm Beach’s Mayor Jeri Muoio presented the firm with a proclamation during a City Commission meeting on May 31, 2011, noting the firm’s outstanding service to the Palm Beach County community (see video). On July 12, 2011, City of Coral Gables Vice Mayor William Kerdyk, Jr. honored the firm’s Miami office with a proclamation citing their community service in Miami and in the City Beautiful where several shareholders live and serve on City committees.
Congratulations to our dedicated staff, some of whom have worked for the firm for more than 20 years. We truly appreciate everything you do.
