Chamber celebrates opening of new law firm

Greensburg — The Greensburg-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce formally welcomed Stephen Legal Group to the Greensburg community and into the Chamber's fold of member businesses Friday morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The firm is owned by Greensburg native Christopher C.T. Stephen.

Stephen told a gathering of friends, family and city officials, that he and his wife were happy to return to Greensburg and to serve the community.

Stephen offered special thanks to Greensburg Mayor Gary Herbert for helping lure him back to his hometown.

"The city of Greensburg was actually my first client," Stephen said.

Herbert commended Stephen as a fine lawyer and the type of legal mind who'll do important work for Greensburg.

Herbert, in fact, announced that on January 1, 2013, Stephen will formally become city attorney, following the recent resignation of Tim Coriden.

"I look forward to serving the city and all the people of Greensburg," Stephen said.

He added that he specializes in business law and said that he particularly enjoys arguing cases in court.

"I really enjoy the theatrics of it," he said.

For more information on Stephen Legal Group or to schedule a consultation, call 222-1234, or visit the firm in person at 105 East Main Street.
