| It is with great sadness that we announce that our friend and colleague, Jane Burke Robertson, passed away on Saturday, May 4, 2013, after a three year struggle with cancer. A partner with the firm, Jane was an outstanding lawyer who received numerous awards for her professional accomplishments and her volunteer work during her 27 year legal career. Jane was deeply appreciated by her many clients who she had the privilege to assist over the years; her contribution to the voluntary sector is significant and will be remembered. The partners, lawyers and staff of Carters feel a great sense of loss with the passing of our good friend and colleague. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jane's family at this time.
In respect of Jane's passing, the Ottawa office of Carters will be closed on Thursday afternoon and for the funeral in Ottawa on Monday, May 13, 2013. Details of Jane's life and many accomplishments are set out in a moving tribute by the family, as well as details of the funeral and the wake, available at http://cole.permavita.com/siteContent/memorial.html?personId=237243.
