Michael J. Shershin, Jr., March 2, 1936-April 7, 2015

Many of our long-time clients and friends remember our former law partner Mike Shershin, a labor practitioner. Mike died earlier in April after a short illness. We offer our condolences to Mike's wife of 41 years, Martha, and to the rest of his family and friends. The following is a statement from Neil Wasser, Chairman of our firm's Executive Committee:

It is with deepest sympathy, that I inform our Constangy family that Mike Shershin, one of the long-time partners in our Firm, has passed away. Mike worked actively in the Atlanta office from 1966 until 2004 when he went on an of-counsel basis and moved with his wife Martha to Laurel, Mississippi. Mike truly loved our Firm and remained connected with many of us - following the developments at the Firm and always offering support and encouragement regarding our growth over the years. He was a brilliant Board attorney and a mentor to a lot of young associates in the Firm. He probably was the definition of the term "prepared" when it came to his NLRB work or arbitration cases. For every case he handled there was a well organized color coded binder, oftentimes multiple binders, highlighted in yellow. Mike served as our Operations Partner, and along with a small core of lawyers, oversaw the business of our Firm for many years. As an associate here in the Atlanta office, I can say that Mike had an amazing knack for calling with an assignment on the "one day" when you might have left work a little early. Mike worked hard, always put the Firm's interests first, and was a good friend to so many lawyers here. He will be missed.

Mike's full obituary is available here.
