The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
“If this were only cleared away,”
They said, “it would be grand!”
The lawyers and staff at Adler & Colvin want to congratulate our friend, our mentor, and our partner, Betsy Buchalter Adler, for clearing away the sand and “graduating” (as she puts it) from a wonderful thirty-year career with our firm, which she helped to found and build, onto the next phase in her life.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do. (Bob Dylan)
After graduating from Boalt Hall School of Law in 1982, Betsy joined Tom Silk, our firm’s founder. She played an integral part in building and growing this firm, where we all feel privileged to work. Betsy particularly enjoyed helping to guide and teach nonprofit organizations. She is, in our opinion, “graduating” much sooner than she should be, but we are all so glad for her and wish her happy traveling and birding, two of her favorite activities.
Betsy loves interacting with people and being a teacher so much; I wonder if she will be able to really stop cold turkey. (Rob Wexler)
Betsy will continue to have a hand in the charitable sector as a nonprofit board member and trustee, and we look forward to continuing to collaborate with her in those roles.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off. (Abe Lemons, Basketball Coach)
Please join us in wishing our friend and colleague Betsy Buchalter Adler a happy graduation!
