Moshe Luber
Submitted by Joe Jordan and Charles H. Jacobs

Moshe Luber was born on December 31, 1948 and died on April 27, 2009. He attended Hillel Academy, North High School, and the University of Chicago, and had a BA and a JD from the University of Colorado and an LLM in taxation from the University of Denver.

Moshe was an accomplished tax attorney. He started his law practice with Brenman Sobol & Baum. He moved on to the Law Offices of Ellis Sobol, became a shareholder in Bourke Jacobs Luber PC, and continued his practice until his death as a shareholder of Lohf Shaiman Jacobs Hyman & Feiger PC.

Moshe was a devoted athlete. He was a weightlifter, rugby player, and runner. Approximately fifteen years before his death, Moshe incurred a spinal injury while playing rugby and was paralyzed from the chin down. Chuck Jacobs remembers frequently visiting Moshe in Craig Hospital and watching and assisting in Moshe’s early recovery. Moshe ultimately regained feeling throughout his body. Although the physicians expected him to be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Moshe defied all expectations and odds and learned to walk, sometimes with a walker, sometimes with canes, but always with great intensity.

The In Memoriam section lists the name, date of birth, and date of death of recently deceased attorneys and legal professionals, as that information is available. Reader-submitted tributes of deceased attorneys and legal professionals, including those listed above, are welcomed. If multiple tributes about an individual are received, they may be consolidated. Tributes must be no longer than 200 words and should provide information about the deceased’s legal career. Photographs are welcomed and should accompany the submission. Tributes and photographs will be published as space is available and the publication schedule allows. Tributes may be edited by staff of The Colorado Lawyer. Send information and photograph to Tracy Rackauskas at
