MY REFRIGERATOR MAGNET-AN HOMAGE---

  • My new, lovely parting gift for all parties.

TO THE MASTER-JUDGE KAYE TERTZAG

  • Judge Kaye Tertzag is one of my heroes. One of the first facilitators, he would give out these refrigerator magnets at his hearings. Though the Judge died in 2009, I still have this magnet on my refrigerator 10 years later. Judge Tertzag and I did not agree on some very big political issues, but he was the professional embodiment of his 3Ps: Be Prompt, Be Prepared, Be Polite.

LAWYERS


  • "Lawyers work hard and, like us, they're human, many of them."-Dick Cavett

JUDGES

  • “A judge is a law student who marks his own examination papers.” - H. L. Mencken

PERSPECTIVE

  • "We are all here for a spell, get all the good laughs you can."
    "Do the best you can, and don't take life too serious."-Will Rogers

STRIVE MIGHTILY

  • "And do as adversaries do in law, strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends." William Shakespeare

Detroit GT


  • Detroit GT is the website of artist Christopher Gorski. A lifetime Detroiter and certified "Car nut", he studied at the premiere College of Art and Design in Detroit - the Center for Creative Studies (CCS). One hand drawn shirt in high school has grown into a full line of apparel and merchandise celebrating Detroit and other uniquely Michigan locales.

    His Detroit Landmark graphic art pieces are remarkable. Some are shown below, and I have 8 of them framed on my office walls (see blog post).

    The prints can be purchased through the site or at my favorite store, Art Is In Market in Laurel Park Place in Livonia.

superlatives ae inadequate for Sy. I should post more but I can't, God Bles you Paty - and thanks Dan

John E. McSorley

Sy had the quentessential character feature that embodied the confidence of never give up-never give in except to compromise when necessary! (I am trying to say that with humor! but it was very real!)
In his personal resolve while he was committed to his medical treatment. Sy never gave up on life nor did he relinquish his principled beliefs. Whether known to him or not, Sy served as a role model and bright star example to lawyers on how to serve the true fullness of their profession, and similarly to all persons on how to live their lives with positive purpose.
