John F. Barrett recently spoke at the NetDiligence Cyber Risk Summit in Santa Monica from October 1-3, 2018 on the topic of “Ethical Obligations for Lawyers in Cyber Response”.
It is with a very heavy heart that we advise of the death of our former partner and friend, Joel Fishbein. Joel, of Cherry Hill, NJ, member of the Philadelphia & Pennsylvania Bar Associations, passed on March 2 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Joel was born on November 19, 1937 in Philadelphia, PA, a graduate of Central High School, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and University of Pennsylvania Law School. He leaves behind the most important people of his life; his wife Donnadell, his son Joel, his daughter Jacqueline and his 6 grandchildren John, Timothy, Kelsey, Mack, Madeline and Xavier. He spent his entire career, nearly 50 years, at Bennett, Bricklin & Saltzburg. His last years involved traveling the globe, wintering in Scottsdale, AZ, avid reading, daily NYT crossword, mornings on the golf course and nights playing bridge. His ripe sense of humor is reflected in one of his favorite quotes: “If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.” H. L. Mencken. In lieu of flowers, please send a tribute donation to the RYR1 Foundation at ryr1.org/donate. The RYR1 Foundation P.O. Box 13312 Pittsburgh, PA 15243. This cause was close to Joel's heart in the search for a treatment for his granddaughter’s life threatening muscle disease.
