In Naples, a full-service law firm is celebrating its own longevity. Founded in 1975, Cardillo Keith Bonaquist Attorneys at Law can claim the title as the longest continuously serving legal partnership in Collier County.
Forty-three years. That’s a long time, especially in Naples. When the firm was formed, Naples had a population of about 17,000, while Collier County had a population of 38,000. Today, nearly 21,000 residents live within the city limits of Naples, while Collier County’s population has swelled to more than 350,000.
As the area’s population and needs grew, so did the law firm. Today, the firm’s attorneys and their staff provide professional legal guidance for a broad range of matters, including personal injury, wrongful death, commercial law, commercial litigation, estate planning, probate administration, trust administration and real estate.
The firm has continuously operated from its original location at the corner of Tamiami Trail East and Osceola Street, all within eyeshot of the Collier County Courthouse, in the heart of Naples’ legal and business community.
In addition to the partners, John P. Cardillo, William D. Keith, James A. Bonaquist, and John T. Cardillo, the firm also includes attorneys James M. Oliver and Jacquelyn A. Boudreau, as well as a number of long-serving support staff.
All four partners have served terms as president of the Collier County Bar Association. They have also held various positions appointed by Florida’s governors.
“With a foundation of 43 years of practicing law, the original focus of our practice has remained the same,” stated John Cardillo. “We are still guided by our commitment to serve the best interests of the general public, with professionalism in our work and involvement in our community.”
Outside of their legal careers, the partners, associates and staff take active roles in the community by supporting both civic and non-profit organizations.
The law offices of Cardillo Keith Bonaquist are located at 3550 Tamiami Trail East. For more information call 239- 774-2229 or visit ckblaw.com.
