In 1961, attorney Preston C. Carlisle established his law firm at the historic Preston King Building in Ogdensburg, New York. The building was built in 1800, and named after the United States senator Preston King, a relative of Mr. Carlisle, who resided there during his senate term. In 1967 Mr. Carlisle became the first assistant district attorney of St. Lawrence County, while continuing to practice law at his own firm. In 1975, Preston Carlisle left his work with the district attorney’s office to concentrate on building his own practice. Since that time, Carlisle Law Firm, with the addition of attorneys William W. Carlisle and Lloyd G. Grandy II has come to be recognized as one of the most prominent law firms in St. Lawrence County.
