Gilbert P. High, Jr. Esq. is a namesake at High Swartz LLP. His grandfather, father, uncle, and himself have all graced the halls of our Norristown law office in Montgomery County.
On January 11, 2023, High Swartz honored Gil for his service to his clients, his colleagues, and the County over the past 57 years by presenting him with a hand-painted portrait. In attendance were firm attorneys, staff, and members of Gil's family—Susan his wife, son Penn and his wife Maureen, and son David. Virtually attending was Gil's daughter, Amanda as well as High Swartz's Doylestown law office.
The honorary portrait of Gil was painted by Barbara Lewis, an artist, teacher, and resident of the Philadelphia area and Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Barbara's work has been exhibited in the James A. Michener Art Museum of Doylestown, the Pennsylvania State Museum, Woodmere Museum, Rowan University of New Jersey, as well as many other galleries and private collections.
Gil's new portrait hangs in High Swartz's office annex which is close to his office. He made an inspiring speech that included his family, his dedication, and his memories over his many years of service. The video below includes managing partner, Joel D. Rosen's introduction, as well as Gil's speech.
