russert - Timothy J.
The New York State Bar Association mourns the passing of Tim Russert, who was first and foremost, a journalist but also a lawyer who did not forget his roots.
A Buffalo native and law school graduate, Mr. Russert elevated public discourse in America through his passion for government, the law and the public good.
He inspired others and set a standard for excellence that all of us whether lawyers, politicians or journalists can hold as a model. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time, he will be missed.
