Richard “Dick” Pluimer was born and raised in Belle Fourche, and attended college in Eugene, Oregon and Spearfish, South Dakota. Pluimer graduated from Creighton University Law School in Omaha, NE in 1979. He started his law practice with Stephens, Quinn, Carr, Tschetter & Buckmaster in 1979 – 1982. In 1982, Dick and Tom Carr formed their partnership with Larry Zastrow which continued until Tom Carr retired from the practice of law in 1997. Dick continued his practice in Belle Fourche until 2001 when he joined with Tom Brady to form the Spearfish law firm of Brady Pluimer, P.C. That practice continued for 15 years until the spring of 2016, at which time Dick went back into practice on his own.
Dick has served as City Attorney for the City of Spearfish for 8 years; as attorney for Black Hills Special Services Cooperative for 30 years; and, as school attorney for the Harding County and Edgemont School Districts for over 20 years.
“I am fortunate that I can now focus my practice on the areas of the law that I have truly enjoyed, with the clients I enjoy working with,” Pluimer said. “Our goal is to continue to provide the best legal services for the clients that we have served for more than 30 years.”
