Breen, Nathaniel F., of the law firm of Breen & Breen, stands in the very front rank of the bar of Jefferson county and is regarded as one of the most trustworthy attorneys of Watertown. He was born in the town of Montague, Lewis county, N. Y., July 21, 1861, a son of Nathaniel and Eleanor (Smith) Breen, who settled in Jefferson county in he year 1872, just one mile north of the city of Watertown, and were the parents of nine children - six boys and three girls; of the boys five were lawyers and one a preacher. The father was of Irish nativity, and the mother of English descent. His education was obtained from the common schools and the Watertown High School, after which he entered upon the study of law and was admitted to practice in 1884. In 1894 he formed a law partnership with his brother, Isaac R. Breen, under the firm name of Breen & Dreen, which continues as it was then organized. Mr. Breen is a close student of men and affairs and enjoys the confidence, respect and esteem of all his associates. In all his professional relations there has been revealed a versatility of talent, a fertility of resource, a knowledge of law and a power of lucid presentation of complex and involved legal situations which have stamped him as an attorney of high rank.
