Fox Rothschild lawyer dies at 104; he was still practicing law. In case you were wondering, the FutureLawyer intends never to retire. Murray Shusterman was actively practicing law when he died at 104 years old. His quote? “What? Retire? Sit in a rocking chair and wait to die?” I suppose that, as long as you remain active and engaged, retirement can mean another chapter in a good life. However, I believe that you should do what you do best. Since I am already doing it, I see no reason to stop. I am slowing down, and only work 60 hours a week these days. Hopefully, I can make it to 104; although, I will settle for fewer quality years. Practice on.
