This month, we sit down with attorneys from several area law firms for a Q&A about their firms, what sets them apart from others and why potential clients should consider their services. Included in this special section, you can learn more about attorneys Michael Pike and Daniel Lustig, Marcelo Montesinos, Alec Domb and Les Shields. In keeping with our Law & Justice theme, we check in with Palm Beach County Chief Assistant State Attorney Alan Johnson. Johnson’s resume is impressive, including serving as chairman of the Unlicensed Practice of Law Committee, and at the Prosecuting Attorney’s Association in areas including prosecutors, evidence, homicide prosecution, jury selection and victim rights. For more than 20 years, he has also regularly served as a volunteer judge for youth court and has been deeply involved in the Wellington community. He is currently spearheading efforts to fight the opioid crisis in Palm Beach County.
From the legal arena, we turn our focus to women’s empowerment, which has been a key focus for polo star, entrepreneur and model Ashley Busch, who has achieved global success at the young age of 27. Her career has come a long way from the first time she rode a horse at age 5 and immediately fell in love with everything about horses. We also profile retired WPTV news anchor Roxanne Stein. Although she has stepped away from the anchor chair, Stein has not slowed down, as she puts her focus on her adopted hometown of Wellington, recently taking over as president of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce. Also featured this month is First Florida Development and Construction, led by president and owner Paul Kleinfeld. First Florida is one of the professional contracting companies responsible for the many beautiful homes that are adding to Wellington’s aura.
We continue our Wellington Professional series with a profile of Maggie Zeller, who shares her vast knowledge in helping with personalized health insurance plans. Our Wellington Senior series features Wellington Cares volunteer Evelyn Regan, who enjoys helping other senior citizens. Wellington Real Estate stops by the Fite Group to chat with Melanie Peterson, who uses her equestrian experience to help clients. Wellington Health checks in with Dr. Neil Grossman, who recently joined the staff at the family-run Palms West Veterinary Hospital. Wellington Home explores the many custom-designed upgrades at a recent tour of a beautiful lakefront Olympia home with Jacqueline and Paul Morris of Gracious Homes. Finally, Wellington Table dined at the new Kaluz Restaurant, which features a fresh look at New American cuisine. Serving a full menu and offering a wide selection of wine to please any palate, General Manager Patrick O’Keefe aims to create and deliver a fresh and unique experience to the Wellington area.
As we begin to wrap up the equestrian season here in Wellington, we send our well wishes and congratulations to all who will be traveling to the World Equestrian Games at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. Special thanks to our loyal advertisers in the community, along with our sales team, editorial partners and photographers who always do an outstanding job for us. We also would like to congratulate Daily Racing Form, which won the coveted U.S. Open title at the International Polo Club Palm Beach..
