Friends and colleagues,
In 1993, my life-long friend Peter Russin and I founded our law firm. Over the years, we have been truly blessed. What began as two young lawyers evolved into a specialized boutique with eight partners and fifteen lawyers, a deep bench of business bankruptcy and commercial litigators that complements my transactional practice. And together, all of us created a collaborative, family oriented, client-focused environment that fosters longevity among our valued clients, lawyers, and staff.
Now, with bittersweet pride, I announce that Peter will become the next bankruptcy judge for the Southern District of Florida. As of today, Meland Russin & Budwick, P.A., becomes Meland Budwick, P.A.
We knew this day would come. Peter has long been deeply committed to our community and has always expressed his desire to enter public service. We are thrilled that his dream has become a reality. Peter’s professionalism, hard work, integrity, and compassion, a legacy that he firmly imprinted on our firm’s culture, will serve him well on the bench. Please join us in congratulating Peter.
Looking ahead, we will continue providing the same client-focused, results-oriented, forward-thinking legal counsel for which we are known, as we continue to serve our clients and aggressively protect their interests.
From all of us, thank you for your support. We look forward to your continued relationship with Meland Budwick, P.A. Simply put, we couldn’t do it without you!
