A History of Dependability
Our legal team is passionate about maintaining the high standards of professionalism and legal service that were established and practiced by founding attorneys Evans Crary Sr. and Evans Crary Jr. Evans Crary Sr. began his law practice in Stuart in 1927 at a time when Martin County was only two years old. He became a municipal judge at the age of 25, and served as County Attorney for 23 years. During his time as County Attorney he was elected to represent Martin County in the Florida Legislature. In 1945 he was elected to the Florida House of Representatives. He served in the House for nine years and even served as Speaker of the House before he went on to become a member of the Florida Senate.
Evans Crary Sr. served in the Florida Senate until 1953, all the while staying extremely active in his own community. He served as President of the Martin County Bar Association, President of the Stuart Chamber of Commerce and was charter member of the Stuart Rotary Club, showing the citizens of Stuart and his fellow senate members that he was passionate about helping his community. Evans Crary Jr. joined his father’s law practice in 1954 and actively practiced law for more than 40 years, also serving as Martin County Judge from the years of 1958 to 1964.
Evans Crary Jr. continued to guide the firm throughout a time of growth and transition from 2 lawyers in the 1950s to a 16 lawyer law firm by the early 1990s. Today, the Crary Buchanan law firm continues to practice the example of integrity, professionalism, energy and devotion that was clearly illustrated in the lives of both Evans Crary Sr. and Evans Crary Jr.
