Last Friday, November 15, 2013, marked my twentieth year with Brydon, Swearengen & England P.C.  Twenty years ago I returned from active duty with the U. S. Army, with a two week old child (who is now a sophomore at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri), and began to practice law in the same building where I am sitting today, with many of the same attorneys that were here in 1993.  The years have flown by, marked much more often by pleasant memories, than frustrations.
