Dallas, Texas – May 25, 2017. Burdette & Rice, considered one of the top Texas law firms for probate, estate, and trust litigation, is saddened to announce the passing of firm attorney Edward L. Rice. Mr. Rice died on April 6, 2017, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
“While Ed’s extraordinary contributions to the legal community and the profession will be greatly missed, he leaves a strong legacy at Burdette & Rice for our litigation attorneys who proudly carry on his tradition and practice,” explained Elliott Burdette, Managing Director of Probate Litigation at Burdette & Rice. He continued, “Those of you that had the opportunity to know Ed will remember his infectious warmth and friendship as much as his insatiable curiosity for the law. Those of us blessed with the opportunity to work with him will remember his unceasing compassion and kindness. Even in the heat of a profession marked by zealous advocacy and argument, Ed managed to exude patience and professionalism. His willingness to mentor young attorneys (and even some older ones from time to time) stands as an example to all of us. We will truly miss our friend.”
