Andrew J. Lubrano (1952-1999) - Andy was one of the founding shareholders of Hill Ward Henderson in 1986 and a valued member of our firm for many years. Andy also established the firm's Corporate and Tax Department, which continues to grow as a thriving practice area with an established reputation for the delivery of premier legal services, due in large part to Andy's dedication and vision. Andy, with an L.L.M. in taxation from New York University, was one of the area's leading tax attorneys, and, today, Hill Ward Henderson still benefits tremendously from Andy's many years of hard work and commitment to our firm and our founding principles. Andy was an alumnus and long-time supporter of Jesuit High School, and our firm helped to establish the Andrew Lubrano Scholarship Fund at Jesuit in his honor.

Douglas P. McClurg (1949-2002) - Doug joined Hill Ward Henderson in 1992. He also founded the firm's Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy Department and served as the Recruiting Shareholder of our firm for many years. Doug, a University of Florida graduate, was well-known as one of the area's top bankruptcy attorneys. In his memory, the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association honored Doug by creating the Douglas P. McClurg Professionalism Award. The Association presents this award annually to a lawyer in recognition for his or her outstanding effectiveness in judicial proceedings through preparation, civility and courtesy to counsel and parties. Doug was a combat-wounded Vietnam veteran, and he received several military awards for his service, including the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
