Friends, Clients and Colleagues:In November, 1918, Blake McDowell, Sr. and Edwin Brouse shook hands on Main Street in Akron to form the law firm that ultimately has become Brouse McDowell. The firm was formed officially in January, 1919 and, accordingly, we are now entering our 100th year of service to our clients. We intend to celebrate with a series of special events and commemorations throughout the year and will keep our friends, clients, and colleagues posted on these developments. I am proud of what our firm has been able to accomplish over that 100 years including a continued commitment to excellence, to professional responsibility and community involvement, and to the enthusiastic and vigorous advocacy for our clients and their business matters.
On behalf of our firm, I want to thank all of you, past, present and future for your relationship with Brouse McDowell as we enter our centennial. We look forward to celbrating our 100th birthday in January, 2019. Please check our website and social media periodically throughout the year as we highlight our history.
