Sims Law Office, located at 202 South Wood in Neosho was named as the February Business/Employer of the Month.
Local professionals, citizens, and business people gathered to honor the firm in a ceremony on Thursday.
"Thank you all for coming out and helping to honor Sims Law Office," Ashley Siler, Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce said. "The way this process works, they were nominated by someone in whose life they may have made a difference."
The Sims Law Office consists of law partners John R. Sims and David W. Sims.
"John and I moved over here from the other side of the square about four years ago," David Sims stated. "Before that, we were in another partnership with other excellent lawyers. I've been practicing for about 15 years and John is dangerously close to being able to say he's practiced law for 50 years. I don't think you'll find many other lawyers with John's experience."
Although Sims Law Office offers a wide range of legal services, their main focus is in three areas. According to Sims, these areas are estate planning, probate, and adoptions.
"We average about 100 adoptions per year," Sims said. "And we handle about as many probate cases."
Recognitions for Sims Law Office were made by Rob Brown, business recognition chairman for the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce, Dana Daniel, interim city manager for the City of Neosho, and by Suzi Crossno, representing Newton County.
The office operates on five principles which are promptness, honesty, value, accessibility, and loyalty.
"This is a proclamation from the Mayor," Daniel said as he made the presentation.
Many of those who attended the recognition ceremony offered their congratulations to Sims Law Office.
"We appreciate you all coming out today. This is probably as many people as we've ever had in the office at one time," Sims said. "Thank you for coming out and honoring us."
The Sims Law Firm is located just off the southwest corner of the Neosho Square at 202 South Wood Street.
