For Immediate Release 

York, Pa. – We note with sadness the passing of Harry J. “Bud” Rubin, Esquire, one of the founders of our York practice.

Rubin helped found the law firm Cohen, Senft and Rubin in 1956, which later became Liverant, Senft and Cohen. He later helped facilitate the York firm’s merger into Barley Snyder in the early 1990s and continued his practice with Barley Snyder through his death over the weekend.

Rubin twice argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, and was a lawyer for 63 years. Before going into private practice, he had worked in the administration of Gov. George Leader of York and former Attorney General Herbert Cohen.

A long-time symphony clarinetist and a student of fine wine and French cuisine, Bud is survived by his wife Margaret “Peggy” (Cohen) Rubin and three daughters.

“We have but one opportunity to live our lives, to shape our careers, to make our marks,” Barley Snyder managing partner Jeff Lobach said. “If ever an exemplar should be cited as to how a person might best use that one opportunity, as a lawyer, as business partner, as a friend and as a citizen – as a member of the human community – one would search long and search hard to find better standard than that set by Bud Rubin. We were so very fortunate to have him among us for so many years as a respected colleague and dear friend.”

Please join Barley Snyder in expressing our condolences to our York colleagues and the Rubin family.
