The Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting April 29 to mark the opening of the new Port Charlotte office of Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz at 2602 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte.

“Congratulations to Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz on their ribbon cutting and new location,” said Bob White, interim executive director of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce. “We are thrilled to have them as part of our dynamic membership.”

The personal injury law firm occupied its previous location for four years before moving to the new office. Notable features include larger office space for client appointments, along with an improved lobby area that will better accommodate the growing legal firm.

“Our legal firm remains committed to serving the Port Charlotte community from this convenient new location. In total, our personal injury attorneys offer more than 200 years of combined experience in pursuing justice for our valued clients,” said attorney and partner Andrea Pleimling Smith, who manages the firm’s Port Charlotte and Cape Coral offices.
