March 1, 2019 is the 20th anniversary of Wittwer Parkin LLP. In 1999, Jonathan Wittwer and William Parkin merged their practices to form the firm. We are celebrating this accomplishment while recognizing that nothing is static, and change is inevitable. A healthy firm grows with, and embraces, change. And many changes are coming on our 20th anniversary.
Jonathan Wittwer is retiring from the practice of law. We are ecstatic for Jonathan. He is looking forward to free time to “only read for fun.” However, we have always believed that reading the law was fun for him. He has lived and breathed the law like few do. Anyone who knows Jonathan has seen his unwavering dedication to the law, his clients and a job well done. He worked harder than anyone. He earned this retirement. Unsurprisingly, Jonathan will be sorely missed. He has been a fabulous partner, sage, mentor and, above all, friend, for the last 20 years. His kindness and legal acumen have made Wittwer Parkin what it is today. The firm name will not be changing as we will continue to honor him and carry on the great legacy he created.
Also, Wittwer Parkin will be relocating its office to Aptos, a community south of the City of Santa Cruz. Given modern technology and the statewide nature of the firm’s practice, location is less relevant than ever. The impending move has also inspired us to employ even more technology to maximize efficiency and mobility. Most of our employees live in, or in close proximity to, Aptos, which reduces (and for some of us eliminates) our commute and our carbon footprint. Nevertheless, we will continue to serve our clients throughout Santa Cruz County and California as we always have. Effective March 1, our new address will be 335 Spreckels Drive, Suite H, Aptos, CA 95003.
