Congratulations to Richard A. Cutler for 50 Years of Service to the South Dakota State Bar Association. Rich graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Dakota School of Law in 1965. Following law school, Rich served in the JAG Corps and attained the rank of Major, spending his last three years assigned to the United States Embassy in Bonn, Germany. After leaving active duty, Rich returned to South Dakota and began practicing with Davenport, Evans, Hurwitz & Smith, LLP, in Sioux Falls. In 1997, Rich left the firm and joined his son, Kent, to establish Cutler Law Firm, LLP. Rich takes great pride in the fact that his family has practiced law in South Dakota since 1906, beginning with his grandfather.
