Robert "Jano" Janowitz, 1943-2013


I am very sorry to say that Bob Janowitz, one of the founders of our Kansas City office, died on Tuesday, October 22, after a brief illness. Jano, a labor lawyer, had planned to retire (appropriately) next Labor Day. A link to his full obituary is here.

Partner Dan Murphy worked with Jano for many years and said, "There was only one Jano . . . he was funny, his laugh was infectious, and he brought a smile to my face even when we were on the phone. He was smart and knew labor law inside and out. He was crusty, feisty, and never gave up. And, he cared tremendously. He was a great mentor to so many of us. He remains a true friend and a great partner. I will miss you, Jano."

We offer our condolences and prayers to Linda, Jano's wife of 42 years, to his daughter, and to the rest of his family and his friends.
