My first legal mentor, the man who taught me how to be a good lawyer after I graduated law school, Albert Momjian, was an amazing family law attorney. When I started working for him, in Philadelphia, in 1997, he was already 65 years old, but was as sharp as a tack. I would prepare our trial cases for him, and he would typically wait until a day or so before trial to start learning the case. We’d spend intensive hours-long sessions with me “teaching” the case to him. And when we appeared in Court the next day, he KNEW the whole case. He was in complete command of the courtroom. He was a spectacle to watch and learn from.
Those skills started to slip when I left his Firm in 2003 to move to Southern California. I got updates from his son, also a family law attorney at his Firm. A short five years later, he was living in assisted living in an Alzheimer’s support section.
He lost everything. He could no longer work – which admittedly was his first joy. He didn’t know many of his large, extended family members anymore – which ran a very close second.
My wife, Carol, and I, along with my daughter's Alex and Niki, and our son, Andrew, will be walking in Albert’s memory.
