New York State Grange - Center for Professional Responsibility

NEW YORK STATE GRANGE

January 4, 2000

Mr. Sherwin P. Simmons
Chairman
Commission on Multidisciplinary Practice
Center for Professional Responsibility
American Bar Association
541 North Fairbanks Court
Chicago, IL 60611-3314

Dear Mr. Simmons,

The New York State Grange, a rural family fraternity of 13, 000 members supports the concept of multidisciplinary practices.   The ability to receive services for a number of different concerns in the same location would benefit our members.

Grange members are often self-employed businessmen working  very long hours on the farm.  It would be very beneficial for them to be able to centralize a location for legal services, financial services, and guidance needs.

I sincerely hope that you will allow more flexibility for bar certified attorneys to participate in multidisciplinary practices.

Sincerely,

Bruce M. Croucher
Master, NYS Grange
