Theodore A. Kolb: May 26, 1920 – March 1, 2015

March 2, 2015 (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) — Theodore A. "Ted" Kolb, long time trust and estate attorney of San Francisco-based law firm Hanson Bridgett, passed away on March 1, 2015. He was 94.

“Ted was a trusted advisor to his clients as well as our own attorneys and he will be deeply missed by all who knew him," stated Andrew G. Giacomini, Managing Partner of Hanson Bridgett.

His long time partner Dennis McQuaid commented: “From 1945 when he passed the California Bar until the week he died, Ted Kolb was a tremendous presence in the San Francisco legal community. He loved practicing law and was a formidable advocate in the courtroom. His clients invariably became his devoted friends. Those of us who had the good fortune to practice with him were blessed by his guidance and wisdom.”

Ted joined Hanson Bridgett in June 2008 as part of a larger group of attorneys from McQuaid, Bedford and Van Zandt. He received his J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1945 and his B.A. from the University of San Francisco in 1942.

Ted is survived by his three sons, Richard, Jonathan and Douglas and their families. Funeral services will be private and for family only, however, donations may be made in Ted's memory to the University of San Francisco School of Law, the San Francisco Symphony, the Merola Opera Program of the San Francisco Opera or to the Family Foundation.
