For 38 years now, Dennis Schurman has been a part of the Detroit Lakes legal community; the last 20 of those years have been spent operating out of his own law office on Holmes Street.


But as of Jan. 1, he will be stepping down from the full-time practice of law, as the Schurman Law Office will become the Schurman & Winters Law Firm.

"I'll be retiring at the end of the year... in four more days," he said Monday.
