Robert Michael Louis Duval – A Tribute From Albion Chambers
It is with the greatest regret and sadness that Chambers has to announce the sudden and unexpected death of Robert Duval, on 13 February 2018.
Rob’s death has been a devastating shock to us all. We are immensely grateful for the numerous messages of sympathy and support that we have received.
Rob was a supremely talented advocate. The skill and dedication with which he conducted his practice inspired so many who saw him at work. Whilst deploying his boundless talents he was always able to maintain a degree of mischief and an inimitable sense of humour.
He was neither selfish nor ambitious and his huge professional achievements were a simple reflection of his inherent skill, hard work, and deep sense of fairness and humanity. Above all, he was the most decent, honourable and generous man who cared deeply about what he did. Albion Chambers will be a much, much, poorer place for his passing.
His dedication to work took a low second place to Rob’s adoration of his family, of whom he was so immeasurably proud. Our love and deepest sympathies are with his wife Caroline and his daughters Sophia, Ellie and Lucy, as they wrestle with this terrible and agonising loss.
