It is with deep sorrow and sadness that we announce the passing of Robert T. Corcoran, Esq., the founding member of the firm, our colleague, and mentor. Bob was a zealous advocate for his clients, but equally as important, he was always the consummate gentleman in every capacity and had a smile that lit up the room. He will truly be missed by everyone at the firm and the Family Law community at large. Our thoughts and prayers are with his two daughters, Sara and Chelsea, at this difficult time.
The family will receive friends and family at Becker Funeral Home in Westwood on Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. where proper COVID precautions are adhered to and capacity is controlled. Additionally, a funeral mass celebrating Bob’s life is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Friday at Our Lady of Victories Church in Harrington Park with similar COVID protocols observed.
Our office is and will continue to remain open, except during the funeral services. Please be assured that we will continue to operate and service our clients as usual just as Bob would have wanted.
