At the time of his passing, Albert had reached the milestone anniversary of fifty years practicing law as a member of both the Florida and Mississippi Bar Associations–a career both as extraordinary as it was unblemished.
Albert possessed a broad wealth of knowledge and experience in matters involving residential and commercial real estate, probate and estate law, and civil litigation. He was also a successful, self–made, real estate investor and developer. With his unique experience, he attained a high level of expertise dealing with a variety of legal issues. Albert maintained memberships in the Florida Justice Association, the Palm Beach County Trial Lawyers Association, and was a staunch supporter of the Legal Aid Society.
Albert never met a stranger. He remained a devoted husband, caring brother, loving father, doting grandfather, second father to his son–in–law, generous and steadfast friend, passionate lawyer, exceptional storyteller, wily angler, gentleman rancher, proud Pahokee Blue Devil, die–hard Ole Miss Rebel, and barbecue rib and French toast master extraordinaire to the end.
Albert departed this world in search of new adventures on February 3, 2020, from the tranquility of his sun–trenched patio at the Two Bar G Ranch in Okeechobee, Florida.
Albert was not only a good person and lawyer; he was the embodiment of goodness. In the words of the American journalist, Dennis Prager, “Goodness is about character–integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.”
Albert knew how to treat people. He is and will always be missed.
