Richard L. Abramson, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and Co-Founding Partner of national construction law firm, Peckar & Abramson, P.C., passed away suddenly on Saturday, May 29, 2021.
The lawyers and staff of P&A, many of whom had the pleasure of knowing, working with, and being mentored by Rich, were deeply saddened following the news. The outpouring from all reaches of the organization only begins to reflect the esteem and deep affection held throughout P&A for this outstanding litigator, partner, mentor, and friend.
Born on October 29, 1946, Rich had a gracious and engaging personality, and was well liked and highly regarded by colleagues, clients, friends, and peers – both in the construction bar and the industry. A brilliant trial attorney known for his rigorous approach to each case, Rich exemplified energetic advocacy coupled with professional and personal integrity. Rich wove his quick wit and insights – as well as grace, kindness, and respect for everyone he met – into each day. A P&A colleague spoke for all of us when remarking today, “thank you, Rich, for providing a platform for me to fulfill my dreams.”
Richard L. Abramson leaves a legacy and permanent imprint upon the culture at P&A, and the impact of his generous spirit, brilliant sense of humor, and unwavering tenacity will endure for generations to come. Our deepest condolences go out to his wife Angela and the Abramson family.
