In 2021, Mr. Messervy began to serve as Of Counsel to the firm and got to enjoy more time at the lake and outside of the courtroom.

Leaving a Legacy of Excellence

The legal team at PMC Law Firm mourns the loss of Mr. Messervy. He leaves behind an illustrious career marked by professionalism, dedication, and significant contributions to both the firm and the legal industry.

Over the course of his impressive career, spanning more than four decades, he played a pivotal role in shaping the firm's culture and growth. He was also instrumental in helping our firm establish itself as trusted and reliable.

His dedication to excellence and commitment to client success was evident in his work. He played a significant role in numerous cases, earning a reputation as the go-to person for help with strategic thinking.
