Gallagher Sharp LLP By Gallagher Sharp LLP

It is with a heavy heart that we report that Forrest Alonzo Norman Jr. has passed away at the age of 90. Forrest was admitted to the Ohio Bar in 1954, became a partner in 1964 and practiced law at Gallagher Sharp for almost 50 years. Forrest was a railroad man to the core representing his clients with skill, grace, and precision. He was nationally recognized, serving on the Executive Committee of the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel (NARTC), as President of the Federation of Insurance Counsel, and Vice President of the Defense Research Institute. He was a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the 1995 recipient of the Centennial Medal Award from Case Western Reserve School of Law. Forrest was a superb trial lawyer with an unblemished record who tried at least one case in six different decades! Our condolences and prayers go out to his family.
