In Memoriam

DAVID KRAUS (1957 - 2011)

David Kraus practiced real estate law in California for 30 years. He was highly respected for his knowledge of the field and for his meticulous legal work.

Extraordinarily bright, David obtained a B.S. in Economics from UCLA, with highest honors (summa cum laude), in only three years. He was then admitted to Stanford Law School, where he obtained his J.D. in 1981.

Before joining Nopar & Associates, David practiced real estate law at several other leading law firms, and worked at Bet Tzedek Legal Services.

David was extremely generous with his time. Even when busy, he was eager to answer other lawyers' real estate law questions. Outside the office, David was equally generous. He volunteered hundreds of hours of his time to build houses for the poor.

David's humility, charm and wit enriched all who had the good fortune to know him. His family, friends and colleagues miss him greatly.
