Here are a few words from Ron’s colleagues:
"He was a fearless advocate but a true professional who refrained from personalizing the controversy of the parties. I had the pleasure of having cases against Ron and also having him appear before me in the trial court and in the master calendar court. Ron would directly answer the court's questions, even if the correct answer was difficult for his client's case because he valued the importance of being an officer of the court where civility is a hallmark of democracy. I intend to let the light of his example of professionalism continue guiding me in my endeavors. Let us all cultivate the good memories of our friend and colleague as an inspiration for how we will conduct ourselves tomorrow."

“From the first day that Ron walked into FMBK, he excelled in his role as Senior Counsel. During our firm meetings and Annual Retreats, Ron contributed to the discussions adding an entirely new dimension of expertise. Ron’s open door mentorship policy and friendly smile will be missed by the Team at FMBK.”

“I not only had the pleasure of having Ron as an opposing counsel on several major cases, including Brandes, but Ron was also a mentor of mine who actively encouraged me to join the AAML. He will be greatly missed, and we are all surely diminished by his loss.”

“Ron Anteau holds a big place in my heart, and of course, in my professional career.
For many years, Ron and Leanne lived down the street from us and were always kind to our large family. We enjoyed competing in tennis, we went to UCLA basketball games together, theater together, dined together and traveled together at times. Decades ago, I opposed Ron in a high-profile celebrity matter. He was a consummate professional. I joined Ron at Simke Chodos Silberfeld & Anteau for a couple years before the K&A adventure took off. A kind mentor, an excellent lawyer, a gracious colleague, and a very special person.”
