NELC Mourns Passing of Julius Turman

It is with great sadness that NELC mourns the loss of Julius Turman, the former President of the San Francisco Police Commission, and Managing Partner of the San Francisco Office of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP. He was 52. 

As a trial attorney, counselor or a Police Commissioner, Julius brought practical innovation to every aspect of his practice. At the time of his passing, Julius headed Constangy's San Francisco office, where his practice focused on a broad range of labor and employment matters, including litigating single-plaintiff, class-action, and collective-action cases.

Julius began his practice nearly 20 years ago representing clients in all stages of federal court litigation under the National Labor Relations Act and the Railway Labor Act, in administrative proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board and in labor arbitration. Julius was a former Assistant U. S. Attorney with extensive experience in FCPA, anti-bribery, anti-corruption, and fraud matters.  

“Julius was a gifted attorney  and a personal friend to many of us,” commented Barbara Johnson, President of NELC.  “He was a strong NELC supporter--Julius spoke on a panel during our Silicon Valley Regional Conference in March of this year. He will be sorely missed by the legal community and his friends.  We send our deepest condolences to his family.”
