As some of you have already heard, we lost a dear friend and law partner March 12th in a boating accident. It is with great sadness that Bass Sox Mercer announces the passing of its partner, Robert C. Byerts. Rob was a member of the Firm for over 16 years. During his time with the Firm, Rob excelled as a litigator, strategist, and counselor. Rob relished the opportunity to represent his clients in the courtroom and advocate on their behalf. Outside of his law practice, Rob enjoyed his family, travel, music, Gator sports, good beer, and stirring conversation. He will be deeply missed.
Bass Sox Mercer extends its deepest sympathies to Rob’s wife Gina, his daughters BJ and Elizabeth, his son Jack and the rest of his extended family. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to the ACLU of Florida, WFSU, Apalachicola Riverkeepers, Leon High School Band, or Lee’s Place in Rob’s name.
