Ford & Harrison is deeply saddened by the loss of our partner David M. Safon who passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 10, 2006. David was an outstanding lawyer and individual who was deeply devoted to his wife Lisa and their three children.
David joined Ford & Harrison in 2004 with the opening of the firm's New York office and immediately endeared himself to the firm and to clients around the country. His warm personality and dedication to his work left a strong impression on his colleagues and clients.
In addition to serving his clients, David was active in the New York community. He was a former president of his synagogue, Congregation Ohav Sholom. He was also active in the American Bar Association serving as chair for several committees.
In remembrance of David Safon, a college scholarship fund for David's three children - Jenny, Keith and Noah - has been established. Anyone interesting in donating to the Section 529 fund should make checks payable to the Safon Children College Fund and send them to Congregation Ohav Shalom, 145 South Merrick Avenue, Merrick, NY 11566.
David will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
