YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Canfield-based law firm returned to its roots Thursday evening to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
The law firm of Friedman and Rummell held a celebration on the 12th floor of the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Youngstown.
The firm used to be on the building’s second floor, of what was then called the Stambaugh Building. Friedman and Rummell opened its first office in 1919.
The firm’s managing partner, Jamie Dietz, commented on how rare it is for a law firm to be around 100 years.
“Well, to last 100 years it is but then to keep the name the same for 100 years, as attorneys and partners come and go, it’s never usually the same names that keep going. But with the tradition of Joseph Friedman and Evan Rummell, there was no need to change it,” Atty. Dietz said.
Friedman and Rummell is located on Starr Centre Drive in Canfield.
It has nine lawyers, the most in the firm’s history.
