In honor of his fifty years of service in the legal profession in Tampa, City Council is honored to recognize Don Stichter. Beginning the practice of law in 1957, Mr. Stichter has provided invaluable service and advice to many members of our community. Don served as president of the Hillsborough County Bar Association in 1972-73. He was one of the founders of the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association and served as its first president in 1988-89. In 2001, Mr. Stichter received the Hillsborough County Bar Association’s Outstanding Lawyer Award. In 1974, he co-founded the legal firm of Stichter, Riedel, Blain and Prosser and has continued to serve the public for the past third of a century with diligence and compassion. Therefore, it is altogether fitting and proper that the Tampa City Council present this commendation to Don Stichter on behalf of a grateful community.
