Senior statesman of the Tampa bankruptcy bar and firm co-founder, Don M. Stichter, reached a milestone, observing his sixtieth year as a practicing attorney. Mr. Stichter, who is currently Of Counsel to the firm, graduated from the University of Wisconsin College of Law in 1957 with high honors and was admitted to the practice of law the same year. On July 15, 1974 the firm opened its doors in downtown Tampa, where it has continued to serve clients for forty-three years. During his career, Mr. Stichter represented parties in many of the largest Chapter 11 cases ever filed in the State of Florida and is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. The firm now has nineteen lawyers who have been widely and frequently recognized by peer-reviewed surveys as among the outstanding bankruptcy lawyers in the State of Florida – a tribute to the leadership, sagacity, and character of Don Stichter.
