MAY 17, 2016: We are deeply saddened by the passing this morning of Ralph Knowles, our friend and law partner of more than 25 years. Our firm has lost its heart and soul. The legal profession has lost a passionate champion of the cause of justice and equality. Over his remarkable career -- from the mid-60s when as student body president at the University of Alabama he clashed with George Wallace to his leadership in later years of some of our nation's most significant civil cases – Ralph has been one of a kind, a courageous and principled lawyer devoted to doing right who made everyone around him a better person. Our thoughts go out to Ralph's wife, Marjorie, and the rest of his family.
