"We at Holland & Knight are all at one through our New York office's unique memory of that fateful day. The Fireman's Wall will help me feel even more a part of it."

William Corey, Holland & Knight Legal Secretary


"I commend you for your dedication to commemorating these brave individuals and wish you much success in your endeavors."

Richard M. Daley, Mayor of Chicago


"I am contributing to the Firefighter Memorial Wall to honor my friend and partner, Glenn Winuk, and the other heroes who sacrificed their lives to help strangers after the 9/11 attacks. This Holland & Knight project promises to be a New York landmark that will touch countless people in the years to come."

Laurie Webb Daniel, Holland & Knight Partner


"I am only a monetary donor to The Wall. The firefighters are the real donors. They donated their lives, making the supreme sacrifice for their fellow human beings, and ultimately for our liberty as Americans. I am humbled by their love and dedication and proud to have contributed to something that will live on in their memories."

Debbie Desmond, Holland & Knight Legal Secretary


"As Glenn's mentor in NYC before he became a partner, I can bear witness to his character and selfless dedication. The Lord calls the best unto Himself, and into His hands we have commended Glenn's spirit as an example for years to come."

Oliver Edwards, Holland & Knight Partner


"The Chicago office of Holland & Knight stands by its partners in New York and around the country in honoring the brave New York firefighters who heroically and selflessly lost their lives on September 11, 2001. We are proud to be part of a law firm that has played such an integral part in creating a lasting memorial to these men and women."

Steven Elrod, Executive Partner, Chicago


"Because two of the airplanes originated in Boston, many, many people here were personally affected by the loss of loved ones on 9/11. Luckily, I was not one of them. Contributing to the Memorial Wall is an opportunity to show my support, compassion and understanding for those who were not so fortunate. I did not know Glenn Winuk either, but I do not feel the necessity to have known someone personally who died to appreciate the importance of this memorial and all that it stands for. I wanted to be a part of it."

Norma Hanson, Holland & Knight Business Manager (Boston)


"This project is much more than a tribute to the NYC Fire Dept. It will be a monument and an inspiration to future generations and fire departments everywhere. It will recognize the duties that firefighters perform and the sacrifices that they are willing to make in the performance of those duties.  Once again, I would like to thank Holland & Knight for making this monument possible."

Manhattan Borough Commander Assistant Chief Harold Meyers


"Our son, Christopher R. Nolan, graduated from law school then moved across the street from City Hall Park and the next day started working at Holland & Knight one week before September 11, 2001. Chris has told us all about Glenn Winuk, his Mentor, who had gone to the same law school as he did. He always spoke so glowingly about Mr. Winuk that he made an indelible impression on us. Our hearts ached on that day with all the lives lost and the days following. My husband and I lost 5 people we knew on that day. We want to make an annual contribution to the Firefighter Memorial Wall, for Mr. Winuk and the impact he made on our son and all he came in contact with, and for all the firefighters who like Mr. Winuk wanted to help and save lives."

Susan and Robert Nolan


"I see this Wall as a tribute to Hope and Love in the midst of the tragedy of 9/11: the Hope of the firefighters that they could save lives by their efforts, and the Love that preserves the memories of them and those who died that day. The Wall is also a tribute to the Hope that we can all learn to live in the Love for one another that motivates us to build a better future for all."

Mary Ann Oakley, Holland & Knight Partner


"The Firefighter Memorial Wall serves to remember and honor those who sacrificed their lives in the ultimate act of selfless heroism, yet it also serves for all as a progressive symbol of rebirth, perseverance, unity and strength."

Lee Teichner, Holland & Knight Partner
