In Memoriam: Frederick W. Leonhardt

Fred Leonhardt, former Chair of the Section of State & Local Government Law, died of an apparent heart attack at his home in Orlando, Florida, on October 9, 2015. He was a leader in his state and community, an outgoing ambassador for our Section, and a great friend who kept in touch with his colleagues over the years. Fondly remembered by members of the Section as one of the Tijuana Three Amigos and known for his compassion, constant encouragement, and motivation of younger lawyers to stay active in their work in the field of state and local government law, Fred was a mentor to scores of lawyers who followed in his footsteps, always making sure to give credit to others whenever possible. Fred was a shareholder of Gray Robinson and focused his practice on government relations. Throughout his practice, Fred helped businesses navigate Florida’s laws and regulations, and lobbied local and state government officials.
