Congratulations to Mr. Albert I. Foreman for being the latest recipient of the HLA Distinguished Solicitor Award! Mr. Foreman's family accepted the award on his behalf at our Corporate Commercial Seminar on October 6th.

Albert I. Foreman was born October 26, 1931, and was raised in Hamilton. He has been
married for over 62 years to Marilyn and they have two children, Shelley and Mitchell, and 5 grandchildren. Mr. Foreman graduated from McMaster University in 1952 with a deg...ree in Political Science. He attended Osgoode Hall and graduated in 1956 and was appointed a QC in 1973.

In his earlier years, Mr. Foreman held many positions in the community.

He is a sports enthusiast and was an excellent athlete. During his 4 years at McMaster, he was a star player on the Marauders Basketball team. While attending Osgoode Hall, he played for the Y and also coached and worked as a referee. He also played baseball for local teams, and was a linesman at the Tiger Cat games. Until the last couple of years, he was an avid golfer.

During his years of practice, he partnered with several lawyers over the years including, Gerald Swaye, Norman Bennett, Anton Zuraw, Steve Grannum, Herman Turkstra, Betty Robson, John White, a number of whom became Judges. Mr. Foreman had several students, including Pat Mackesy, David Smye, and Gerry Swaye, to name a few. Mitchell Rosenblatt joined Foreman & Bennett in 1976, and after Norm Bennett became a Provincial Court Judge, the firm became Foreman & Rosenblatt and subsequently, Foreman, Rosenblatt & Lewis, after Christine Lewis became a partner in 1997.

Mr. Foreman was a mentor to many other lawyers in the City and he was often called for advice and guidance. He is a gentleman, well liked and respected by his colleagues. After practising primarily commercial law for 58 years, he retired in December of 2014.
