In Fond Memory of Robert J. Kates
1941 - 2013

It is with profound sadness that I mourn the loss of my mentor and partner Bob Kates. In 1987, Bob took a chance on me as a raw, unskilled and inexperienced lawyer. With his patience, red pen, fanatical attention to detail and a willingness to accept nothing but the finest work product I was capable of producing, Bob transformed me into a serviceable lawyer. My education continued for the next 26 years. I was blessed to have such an expert craftsman in the arts of negotiating, drafting and litigating guide my way. Bob’s well-earned reputation as a skilled, ethical lawyer garnered him a level of respect enjoyed by few. Bob set a standard of honor, excellence and civility I will aspire to as long as I practice. - Peter M. Barlow
