Goodell DeVries Honors Retirement of  Named Partners

April 2013

Goodell DeVries honored the retirement of two named partners, Sidney G. Leech and E. Charles Dann, Jr., celebrating their longstanding commitment and history with the firm.  As a token of appreciation, Goodell DeVries has made financial contributions in their honor to charities of their selection.  On behalf of Mr. Leech a contribution was made to Collegebound Foundation and on behalf of Mr. Dann a contribution was made to Mercy Medical Center.  This is the first retirement of any partner from Goodell DeVries.  The retirements are significant milestones for the firm which also celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. 

Mr. Leech began as one of the original founding partners of Goodell DeVries and has practiced continuously as a partner and will continue to work with the firm as “of counsel.”  Mr. Dann started with the firm shortly after its origination, having previously worked closely with Mr. Leech and the other Goodell DeVries founding partners.  Mr. Dann will also continue to work with the firm as “of counsel.”  Goodell DeVries would like to thank Messrs. Leech and Dann for their tireless efforts on behalf of the partnership and we wish them well in their retirement.
