Last summer I had gone to Snow Hill Maryland several times in order to try a workers comp claim.
One of the reasons I went all the way down tot he tip of Maryland is that this was for a long-time client who re-broke his back. he had had his spine put back together with rods and screws as the result of the first case I won for him. One of the rods broke and was removed in the second Virginia claim I helped him with, and now, he had fallen and reinjured himself again. Together with Maryland counsel, we had won before the comp judge, but the case had been appealed. In Maryland, that means a jury trial in a workers compensation case ! After numerous depositions and motions, the case settled favorably for this Ocean City client, whom I had represented twice before in Virginia, on the eve of trial.
This beautiful part of the DelMarVa peninsula is very flat and undeveloped, and I had raced on the shores on both sides, but never explored the interior. As an anniversary present, my bride signed us up for the 20th anniversary Sea Gull Century. While it took me all day, we did manage to ride the entire 100 miles. The event was well-supported, with friendly volunteers, mechanics and spectators. The only hill was on the bridge approaching Assateague, and there were Sag wagons available. Shown here is Doug Landau with Fairfax lawyer Dixon Young and Alexandria lawyer Tom Curcio at the Assateague Island State Park rest stop during the Sea Gull Century. I have ridden and run with these Virginia Trial lawyers before, and it was nice to be surprised and see familiar faces in the crowd.
