Michael attended the University of Oklahoma for undergraduate studies and pursued his law degree at the University of Maryland. During law school, he was a chairperson and member of the University of Maryland Moot Court Board, as well as a member of the school’s International Moot Court Team and Law Review author. He received the Cunningham Award for exceptional achievement and contribution to the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.

For 38 years, Michael practiced law with the Baltimore-based firm Schlachman, Belsky, Weiner & Davey, P.A. His practice spanned numerous areas of the law, but he was best known for his work in the State appellate courts, especially in matters involving the defense of law enforcement officers. He served as General Counsel for several police unions in the Baltimore area, including the Baltimore County Police Department and the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

In his free time, Michael played the keyboard, wrote fiction, and created numerous works of art, predominantly in pen-and-ink. Several of his pieces, including character portraits of his partners, Supreme Court justices and others, decorated the walls of the law firm. Michael was regarded by many as a true Renaissance Man, tirelessly working to restore his Federal-style home in Bolton Hill while managing an impressive garden year-round. Michael will be forever remembered for his wit, his professional integrity and, above all, his love for his son.

Bernard L. Speights

The lodge regrets to announce the passing of Bernard L. Speights (April 9, 2020), father of Officer Rodney Speights.

Bernard Leroy Speights was born on Friday, January 3rd, 1947 in Harlem, NY to the union of Celia Jeter of Virginia and William Edward Speights of New Jersey.

In June of 1964, at the age of 17, Bernard enlisted into the U.S. Navy where he served on the U.S.S. La Salle (LPD-3/AGF-3), a Raleigh-class amphibious transport dock ship. The U.S.S. La Salle saw service in the Carribean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and throughout international waters in the Middle East. On November 3rd, 1966, the U.S.S. La Salle recovered the Gemini 2-MOL test space capsule near Ascension Island for the NASA Project Gemini.

While enlisted in the Navy, Bernard enjoyed serving his country and sailing to different ports of call, but he really enjoyed the relationships that he forged with his navy men. He finally decided to retire in 2008 as a Master Printer/Pressman from Prestone Printing Company Inc.  

Bernard has a passion for roller skating. I think it’s safe to say that Bernard was a professional roller skater, as he was known to carry indoor wheels and outdoor wheels for his skates. Bernard was also known to make his mixed cassette tapes for his “Walkman” from WBLS on Friday nights, then would skate all night at the former popular spots like: Skate Key in the Bronx, Empire in Brooklyn, and Central Park in Manhattan. Bernard would even skate inside his apartment up until his recent transition when the weather was too cold to skate outside. It was hilarious to hear Bernard out of breath from moving furniture in the apartment so that he could skate from the living room, down the hallway, to the apartment door, and back as WBLS played in the background.

Bernard Speights will be deeply missed by his family, friends, former co-workers, and the multitude of people he crossed paths with whether at Franklin Plaza Apts, at Yonkers Raceway Track and Casino, the local “numbers” spots in the neighborhood, or at the skating rings. Bernard embodied a warm and giving spirit that was felt by all.
