Diana (Gables class of '61) and I have three children and five grandchildren. All of us live on Key Biscayne. Our oldest, Kara, an accountant, is a partner at Kaufman and Rossin, where she works primarily in litigation support. Kara and her husband Scott Sharp, have two wonderful daughters. Our second, Jennifer, is a partner in the law firm although for the last five years most of her work has been devoted to charitable causes. Her husband, Matt Buttrick, is a partner in the law firm as well. They have three boys who similarly make us very proud. Our youngest, Andrew, is also a partner in the law firm.

The law firm has grown somewhat, with about 125 attorneys and approximately 300 employees. We have offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Tallahassee. Our website is

Other than a stint in Florida government during law school, my entire work experience has been in the law firm representing clients in state and federal courts, arbitration and administrative proceedings.

We enjoy a good life in a very nice city, the "best of times" and only wish it was not "the worst of times" for so many.
