West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James presented a tribute to Jones Foster in recognition of its centennial anniversary at a January 8 city commission meeting.
Accepting on behalf of Jones Foster were Chair Larry B. Alexander and Vice Chair Scott G. Hawkins.
“Jones Foster’s deep roots in the City of West Palm extend back to the original land boom of the 1920s and we are proud to have worked alongside generations of visionary leaders who have built this city into a prosperous and world-class destination,” Alexander said. “We are honored by this recognition from Mayor James, and with gratitude accept the tribute on behalf of our current team of attorneys and our distinguished predecessors who pursued not only legal excellence but leadership and community advocacy, serving as role models and mentors for the next generation.”
