Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy issued this statement on the death of Texas trial lawyer Steve Mostyn:

  “The officers and staff of the Texas AFL-CIO are in mourning over the death of Steve Mostyn, an extraordinary trial lawyer and friend of working people in our state.”

  “Steve was known best for standing up for working families in courtrooms all over the United States following tragedies of every stripe. His pursuit of justice reflected a unique drive and intellect. Steve was a consummate professional, but his good deeds extended well beyond the courthouse. Working families, special education students, participants in the Special Olympics and many progressive causes benefited from Steve’s great heart and kindness.”

  “We will miss Steve terribly. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Amber Mostyn and the Mostyn family."
