In Memory of Allan J. Joseph (1938–2013)

Allan Joseph, a founder of our firm and a beloved figure in the San Francisco and national bar, died early the morning of Tuesday May 7, 2013. His vision, that it was possible to practice the highest quality law in a firm that valued each individual in it, has been our touchstone throughout our 32 years. His career was distinguished in every way - in legal achievements, in contributions to his community and in service to the bar. But for his colleagues his greatest hallmarks were the respect and decency with which he treated everyone he dealt with and the good humor and enthusiasm he brought to every task. Working with Allan Joseph was always fun and rewarding.  We mourn his loss. RJO Tribute; Obituary; The Procurement Lawyer Tribute; Public Contract Law Journal Tribute

A Memorial Service was held on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at Congregation Sherith Israel in San Francisco, and many of Allan’s family, friends and colleagues, including current and former colleagues at RJO attended and spoke about Allan and the tremendous positive impacts he had on all of us.
