I met Milton only once, but I have had the good fortune of reading his magnum opus on the Port Authority. Well done, Milton! -- Jim Doig, Professor at the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University

Milton was a “Lawyer’s Lawyer” I worked with him as a member of the Port Authority Law Department. He was demanding and set high standards. Thank you Milton as you made me a better lawyer

I only knew Milton for a few years but I wish I had met him sooner. I enjoyed talking to him and picking his brain on real estate matters. He was a true gentleman and he always made you feel that your matter was important to him. He was a credit to the Bar and the Human Race as well. Sincerely,
Allan G. Larson, Esq.

My most recent encounter (since I’ve known him for over 30 years there are too numerous) with Milton Pachter (Milt) was discussing his book project, an account of the Port Authority’s land acquisition of the World Trade Center site. It was remarkable that even in his late eighties Milt had such a profound recall for minute details of cases he had tried over 50 years ago. He was an exceptional lawyer and a great person!

As a member of the Human Resources at the Port Authority of NY & NJ, I remember working with Milton ("Milt") WELL! He was PHENOMENALLY astute, he LISTENED well, he was an EXEMPLARY member of the Bar(s) with which he was affiliated. They quite literally don't make them like this anymore . . . .

A man is judged by the good he does throughout his life. Milton (Uncle Milty) did much good for others during his fruitful life. He is a life giving difference in the lives of many and especially mine. A man of integrity and character who demanded excellence in himself and others around him. He will always be remembered and is an eternal reality for the good, lifegiving difference he made in my life, my family and others I know.

We never met but feel that you wanted to infer onto others that there is more than a paycheck for a dedicated public servant.
