Resquiat in pace Mike Ford

Mike Ford, a former president of the Minnesota State Bar Association who practiced law at Quinlivan and Hughes, died unexpectedly over the weekend.  Mike and I were on opposing sides of a lawsuit where the emotions between the parties ran pretty high.  That sort of thing can charge the dynamic of how the lawyers deal with each other.  Mike, however, was a true professional.   I learned a lot from how he handled dealing with that dynamic.  I also picked up a couple good tips from  from watching how he took depositions.  He was a credit to the profession and our sympathies to his friends and family.
