Richard Beresford honored as 2014 Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Professional of Year

Beresford Booth senior partner Richard Beresford Tuesday received the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Professional of the Year award.

The award cited Beresford’s reputation “for impeccable honesty and high business ethics which have led to his being recognized as one of the premier attorneys in the Edmonds community. As a result, he is actively sought by a number of highly respected businesses as well as a number of non-profit organizations”.
