Tom Wilhelm’s Retirement Message

“As I began thinking about retiring some years ago, I was concerned about our reputation as a law firm, and whether I could find someone who I could trust to take my place, to take care of our clients, many of whom are good friends, and someone who would take care of our people, our employees.


First let me say that Steve and I have enjoyed a great personal and professional relationship, and a great friendship, which goes back more than 20 years. When Steve first expressed an interest in taking over the business when I was ready to let go, I was thrilled. I knew that Steve would take good care of my clients and my employees, and he has. And I know that I can trust Steve to carry on the work I started so long ago, and that I can trust him to uphold our reputation in the community.”
