Tribute to John Shamberg

John Elliott Shamberg was a very successful trial attorney whose legal career extended over 60 years. He died on July 9, 2009. John was a co-founder of Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman. Even more, he was a mentor, advisor, vigorous advocate for legal rights, and still today, a perpetual example of our founding principles. During his distinguished legal career, he engaged in many groundbreaking cases, which impacted the way laws were re-written. He also represented hundreds of personal injury victims, many of them children, who suffered due to gross negligence. Most notably, he was one of the designated lead counsel for victims of the 1981 catastrophic collapse of the Kansas City Hyatt Regency Hotel skywalks; a tragedy resulting in the death or serious injury of 350 people. John was recognized with many honors and awards for his eminent accomplishments in the legal profession. He also received the Bronze Star medal for his heroic and meritorious service during World War II as a member of the Greatest Generation. He leaves behind an incredible and enduring legacy.
