    The entire bar will miss Ken Shear. He has been a remarkable resource for the Bar. But for his vision, the Philadelphia Bar Association Charity Run would not have had the seed financing to be organized for the first time 33 years ago. As a result of Ken regularly making the Bar Association the name sponsor of the run, the Bar Association has created subtstantial good will for all lawyers in our community.

  • Craig Tractenberg

    Ken is a great civic and community leader, who quietly influences and leads with his intelligence and sterling character.
