Murray H. Shusterman was featured in the Above the Law article, "A 101-Year-Old Attorney Is Still Working at This Big Law Firm.” Full text can be found in the July 22, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Nearing his 102nd birthday, Murray H. Shusterman has worked at Fox Rothschild as an attorney for more than 40 years and still works full eight-hour days all week long without showing signs of slowing down.

The Philadelphia Inquirer recently printed a profile of Shusterman, highlighting his resilience, steadfast work ethic and kind nature.

Shusterman’s son, Robert, 72, who also works as a lawyer, says that his father continues to practice law because of his “stubbornness.” He explains that his father “keeps pushing himself as hard as he can, and tries not to complain about things. He has a determination, a will to overcome impediments.”

When The Philadelphia Inquirer pressed him to name his best or worst moment of his life, Shusterman replied, “There’s no such thing. A person has many experiences over time, some good, some bad. . . . The real secret is to be decent, to be fair, and to be forgiving – now and then even a friend will do something that annoys you. And don’t take yourself too seriously.”
