Pictured here is Partner Rich Schoenberger on the occasion of being honored by the San Francisco chapter of ABOTA with its Don Bailey award on December 9. The award was instituted in 2000 to acknowledge an individual chapter member who models civility and humanity in their work. Bailey successfully blended tenacity with politeness; success with humility. He was a great model to younger lawyers of how to be a zealous advocate without losing one’s sense of perspective. Rich holds and maintains these same traits, serving as a mentor to younger attorneys on both sides of the aisle. He is the third member of the firm to receive this prestigious honor, following in the footsteps of Dan Kelly and George Shelby.
