Bernard J. DiMuro March 3, 1954 – March 8, 2024

It is with the greatest sadness that we share the news of Ben’s passing.

For over thirty years, Ben was the managing partner of DiMuroGinsberg. He was a much loved and highly respected member of the legal community, who was known for his sharp wit and his extraordinary skills as a litigator by his clients, his adversaries, and the judges before whom he appeared.

Ben gave unselfishly of his time in service to the Bar. He served as its president and on its governing council for 11 years. Ben also chaired the State Bar Disciplinary Board among the many other influential committees and boards on which he served.

He was sought out for his expertise in legal ethics both as an expert witness and lecturer throughout the State. Ben was also one of the original founders of Lawyers Helping Lawyers and for many years, was an active fund raiser for the Special Olympics.

Ben was an Inaugural Member of Virginia Lawyers Hall of Fame, a Leader in the Law, a Fellow of the American Bar Association, The Litigation Counsel of America, and The Virginia Law Foundation. He has been listed as a “Best Lawyer” in commercial litigation since 2012 by The Best Lawyers of America and has been named a Legal Elite in civil litigation by Virginia Business Magazine.

Ben was a strong leader and a lover of the law. His depth of knowledge and experience will be missed by the many people who knew and loved him. Although once referred to as “rude and abrupt” by a local Journal, he was one of the kindest, funniest and nicest people you will have ever met.

A private funeral service will be held by family members in Chicago. A memorial service will be held in Virginia at a future date.
