American Lawyer, At 107, Paul Weiss Partner Mordie Rochlin Says Hard Work Makes for a Long Life:
Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison partner Mordie Rochlin, one of the oldest men in the United States, is convinced that the only reason he made it to the age of 107 is that he never left the firm that he retired from decades ago.
“Without the firm, I would have probably shriveled up somewhere in a nursing home and have long been put away,” he said as chairman Brad Karp and other guests listened intently.
“He has been a vibrant part of the firm for the past 37 years since his retirement,” Karp said. “Mordie continued to work for clients; he continued to come to the firm daily; he continued to attend partner meetings. I believe the firm, and its partners, have been Mordie’s extended family for decades.”
