It is with profound sorrow and regret the firm advises that our law partner, Jody Hart, passed away on Wednesday, April 28. Words cannot adequately express our shock and sadness regarding this tragic news. He was a great lawyer and well respected throughout the legal community. Jody was a rare person—passionate, driven, brilliant, diligent and unapologetically honest. And he also had a big heart he often didn’t want to disclose to others, but that he could not really conceal. All of us are so very proud to have had an opportunity to know him, to call him a friend and partner, and to have learned from his exceptional example and talent. He will be sorely missed.
