"February 11, 2014
I am deeply saddened to have just learned about the leaving of my former attorney and wise friend Leo Branton Jr. He defended me. We were unsuccessful, yet he encouraged me, and by his warmth, conveyed that the judgment of others is neither final nor inspirational. Motivation comes from within. I would later go on to obtain additional law diplomas from abroad, and returned sobered, and more reflective to the practice of law. He was a giant in the legal profession, and a guiding star to all who dare to lift their sights beyond the judgment of man. True warrior!"
