SEMINOLE – In recognition of attorney Dennis R. DeLoach Jr.’s 50 years as a member of the Florida Bar and his years of service, city of Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters presented DeLoach with a proclamation from the city declaring June 4, 2014, as Dennis R. DeLoach Jr. Day.
Born and raised in Georgia, DeLoach graduated from the University of Georgia in 1960 and graduated from Stetson Law School in 1963. He then joined the law firm of Fisher & Sauls in St. Petersburg. In 1965, DeLoach transferred to Fisher & Sauls’s Seminole office, where his passion for the community led him to help form the city of Seminole in 1970 and serve as its first co-city attorney along with late attorney Bill Dunlap.
In 1976, DeLoach started his own law office, which is now known as DeLoach & Hofstra P.A.. The office currently offers services to clients in the areas of personal injury, commercial litigation, elder care, estate planning, real estate, probate, wills, trusts and estates.
Attorney Peter Hofstra joined DeLoach in 1977. Paul Cavonis joined the firm in 1993, and DeLoach’s son Dennis R. “Rep” DeLoach III joined in 2001. In 1993, DeLoach and Hofstra founded Seminole Title Company to assist citizens with their residential and commercial real estate closings.
In recognition of his many efforts, DeLoach was named Mr. Seminole in 1992.
