The Gerald M. Katz Client Appreciation Award

On November 9, 2022, PK Law honored the memory of the late Gerald M. Katz with a small gathering of staff, friends and family and presented the first Gerald M. Katz Client Appreciations Award.

The Gerald M. Katz Client Appreciation Award is intended to recognize and memorialize the many wonderful qualities Jerry Katz displayed in his daily interactions with his colleagues and his clients – his empathy and compassion, patient listening, humbleness, and extensive knowledge and skill as a practitioner. Mr. Katz was widely recognized in the Baltimore legal and business communities as one of the Baltimore area’s preeminent business and tax attorneys. His clients praised him for his legal knowledge and creative and skillful ability to help them with their business matters, while also recognizing how much they enjoyed working with him as a person. His PK Law colleagues remember his incredible work ethic and skill as a lawyer combined with a grandfatherly way of making things better just by listening.

The Award is presented each year on the anniversary of Jerry’s death, November 3rd, to someone in the PK Law family who exemplifies some, if not all, of Jerry’s amazing qualities in their daily interactions with clients, firm guests and their PK Law colleagues. In recognizing this person, the goal is to keep Jerry with PK Law and make PK Law a better place to work for everyone at the Firm.

2022 Recipient – Rhonda King – Rhonda has been with the Firm for 11 years and has become a PK Law institution with her words of encouragement to all, friendly greetings to the Firm’s clients and guests, and exemplary work ethic.
