Lundberg, Price Merge Law Firms
Practicing law has been a family tradition for local attorney Sam Price.
Not only did his grandfather practice law in the Fenton Building back in the early 1900s, but his dad and uncle followed suit after World War II.
Now, after more than 20 years in the former Key Bank building, located at 202 N. Main St., as part of the Price Flowers Malin & Westerburg law firm, Price said he’s more confident than ever that his family’s calling to serve others will continue forward.
Starting next year, his law firm will officially merge with Lundberg Law Offices, located at 202 W. Fourth St.
The merging, according to Price, became an option after his law partner, Tom Flowers, and another paralegal, announced their retirement — leaving the number of personnel in his office short.
”We wanted to stay in downtown Jamestown … so we started talking to (Dana A. Lundberg of Lundberg Law Offices) about the possibility of getting together and it worked out well,” Price said. ”It gives us the opportunity to have a little more resources for our clients.”
Lundberg said he has long respected Price and his law firm, calling the merger a great “benefit” for current and future clients.
”Sam and I have been on the opposite sides of one another on quite a few transactions … and we do similar work in that regard for businesses, corporations and real estate,” Lundberg said. ”So for us, there was a natural synergy. It’s not so much about expanding into a new area that we’ve never covered before. It’s more being able to combine our resources for continuing the same type of work that we do.”
The new “merged” law firm will be called Lundberg Price, P.C., and will have eight total attorneys, four being in active day-to-day practice and four as counsels.
The four active attorneys are: Price, Lundberg, Myra V. Blasius and Matthea W. Ross. The four counsels are: Stephen Abdella, Robert W. Van Every, Charles G. Beckstrom, and Thomas Flowers.
To contact the firm, call 664-2346 or 664-5210.
”It’s really nice to continue the practice and see the firm move forward,” Price said. ”This was a nice opportunity for longevity and to continue to help the clients who have known us over the years.”
