Tom Jalkut and Mike Bohnen Discuss Louis Brandeis's Legacy on JewishBoston.comPrint PDF
Thomas P. Jalkut, a partner in Nutter’s Trusts and Estates Department, and Michael J. Bohnen, Of Counsel in the firm’s Business Department, discussed Louis D. Brandeis in Boston and the importance of his legal career at Nutter on JewishBoston.com. In the article, “Brandeis in Boston,” Tom and Mike commented on the firm’s historical ties to Brandeis, who co-founded the firm with Samuel D. Warren in 1879 (as Warren & Brandeis), and who became the nation’s first Jewish justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Tom, who administers a trust left by Brandeis’s widow, pointed out that Brandeis, who is most often remembered for his time on the U.S. Supreme Court, spent decades as a practicing lawyer and noted that he was an enormously talented lawyer who toiled in the day-to-day, often mundane work of the profession. Mike, who has a collection of Brandeis legal memorabilia, commented that Brandeis created a tradition of professional excellence, legal innovation, pro bono service, and civic engagement that continues to inspire lawyers at Nutter today.
