In 1892, Walter Dimsdale and Franklin Morris meticulously drew up a partnership agreement establishing the law offices of Dimsdale & Morris. They hung their shingle, which Walter carved himself, on the third floor of a Market Street office building in San Francisco.

Walter and Franklin credited their ability to make money for themselves and effectively defend against those who would take it away from their clients.
