The Legacy of Burt Kahn

Burt Kahn practiced law at Joseph, Greenwald and Laake for his entire 49-year career, from law clerk to managing partner.  He was deeply admired by his colleagues, clients, judges, and even opposing counsel. They revered him for his professionalism, knowledge, selflessness, and above all, his integrity.

Burt became one of the region’s leading medical malpractice lawyers.  His mastery of both law and medicine was unequaled.  Through leadership and example, Burt created a culture of the highest professional excellence at JGL. This is his legacy to our firm and to the practice of law.
