“We have grown from a solo practice to 10 lawyers in the last decade,” said Jonathan, Mr. Frutkin’s son, in a prepared statement.

“I am so happy that Harvey decided to spend the last several years of his career working with us to become a successful member of the Arizona legal community.”

Mr. Frutkin is a published author and editor of 10 white papers and articles. He served as an adjunct professor of law in federal corporate taxation at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio.

“I followed in the footsteps of my parents when I became a lawyer,” said Mr. Frutkin. “It is a lot of fun to watch Jonathan and the firm grow.”

Mr. Frutkin will continue to live in Scottsdale and spend time with his seven grandchildren.
