I moved to Florida in 1981 and established a branch office in Naples, Florida for the upstate New York Regional law firm of Harter, Secrest & Emery where I was Partner-In-Charge through 1996. I subsequenbtly formed my own firm which became Garlick, Hilfiker & Swift, where I continue my general business, corporate, real estate and litigation its Managing Partner.

A rock in my time of need
He was a steady rock in my time of need. He was great at telling me the facts of the case without being an alarmist. I felt much better when I left his office than when I went in there.
