Remembering George Nofer – Renowned Attorney, Advocate for the DeafOn May 11, 2021 by Schnader
Bruce A. Rosenfield published an article in The Legal Intelligencer, “Remembering George Nofer – Renowned Attorney, Advocate for the Deaf.”
George H. Nofer, 94, of Philadelphia, a national leader in the field of trust and estate law and a trailblazer in supporting services for deaf individuals, died recently of natural causes.
George spent his entire legal career at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, joining the firm after law school in 1952 and retiring as senior counsel in 2005. He chaired Schnader’s trust and estate department for many years.
George’s passing represents a generational loss for the Philadelphia legal community, as the likes of his professional career, charitable endeavors, and enduring personal relationships will rarely be seen again.
