Mark Weinberger

Mark Weinberger, one of the founders of the environmental law firm that has represented Committee for Green Foothills for many years, passed away last week after a battle with leukemia. Shute Mihaly & Weinberger is a unique law firm representing the "non-developers" on environmental issues - the nonprofits and governmental agencies - and Mark was a champion for the environment.

His obituary is here, and his biography at the law firm is here.

On a personal note, Mark was a Stanford alumn and therefore responsible for many of the initial interviews of Stanford law students, and one of the people involved in hiring me at the firm when I had just graduated from law school. That connection to CGF's law firm resulted ultimately in my being hired by CGF to be its Santa Clara County Legislative Advocate. Mark was a wonderful and very warm person, and will be sorely missed.
