David Kittner, 95, of Jenkintown, a lawyer and longtime partner at Blank Rome L.L.P., died Friday, April 18, at his home.
A native of North Carolina, he graduated from Weldon (N.C.) High School in 1934 and went on to earn a business degree from the University of North Carolina in 1939 and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1951. Between the two degrees, he was an accountant and served a short time in the Army at the Presidio in San Francisco.
Mr. Kittner joined Philadelphia-based Blank Rome in 1956. He developed a knack for corporate tax law and was a trusted adviser during the firm's formative years. He also served as a mentor to younger lawyers.
