Schroeter Goldmark & Bender is sad to announce that Leonard W. Schroeter passed away Monday, April 28, 2014, at the age of 89. Len was known with good reason as one of the most eloquent speakers about the suffering caused by the negligence of others. It was not only that he was brilliant, but he had thought about such things down to their very essence. He could talk about suffering because he understood it in a visceral way and then could communicate that understanding to a jury. There was no wrong Len was not willing and eager to right. No defendant too large or too powerful that he could be intimidated from going after. He was fanatical in his dedication to plaintiffs and the plaintiffs’ bar. Leonard was unforgettable. We are honored that our firm continues to bear his name, along with those of his two co-founders. A rabble rouser, a philosopher, a thinker, an orator, a writer, a mentor…Len was all of these and more.

He made his mark on this world and he will be missed.
