UPDATED FUNERAL INFORMATION BELOW
This is for old-timers only. Sad news today has reached us that Gordon Shuminer, brother of Alan and Jeff Shuminer, passed away today-Thursday- unexpectedly.
Gordon was a public defender in the 1980's. Gordon had immense talent and ability and is still famous for cross-examining an empty chair during closing argument, highlighting a state witness who wasn't called well before Haliburton prevented such brilliant tactics. For those of you who remember him, he was one of a kind.
For many years only Alan Shuminer has practiced in Miami, and we are sure he would love to read the memories of his brother from those who knew him.
UPDATED: Services are this Sunday, July 2, 2017, at 2PM at Beth David Chapel, 3201 North 72nd Avenue, Hollywood, FL
May Gordon rest in peace.
