Each May, members of the Bench and Bar legal community who passed away are remembered during a memorial service hosted by the Lawyers’ Association of St. Louis. This year the service was held on Thursday, May 24th at the Civil Courts Building in downtown St. Louis.
Casey & Devoti Partner Matt Devoti delivered a thoughtful eulogy emphasizing that while they all were lawyers, some practiced their entire career and others chose a different career path. Despite their differences, he pointed out their one common thread was their dedication to upholding the principals of the Constitution and their contributions to the St. Louis legal community and the community at-large.
The Lawyers’ Association of St. Louis is recognized in the St. Louis metropolitan area as the association for trial attorneys. It was founded in 1934 to include all members of the Bench and Bar regardless of ethnicity and religion. Today the association’s members have become some of the area’s top trial attorneys and have been appointed to the federal, state and local benches.
