By the early 1960s Chesterfield Smith was becoming a leader in the Florida Bar, and in 1964 he became president. Shortly after his term as president ended, the governor named Smith hair of a new Constitution Revision Commission. This group succeeded, where others had failed, in drafting a wholly new constitution for Florida and getting the legislature to place it on the ballot, where a majority of Florida’s citizens approved it. As the Constitution Revision Commission finished its work, Smith merged his growing law firm with one based in Tampa. The resulting firm, Holland & Knight, continued to expand and to open more offices.
