Volunteers make the races run

Doug Landau, Ed Grant, Eammon McEvilly & Pat Finn after the DCRRC Fort Hunt park 10 km. oad raceShown here with long time DCRRC competitors, race directors and volunteers, is Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau and Ed Grant, Eammon McEvilly and Pat Finn. Ed Grant has been an officer and race director, and had the distinction of driving the “DCRRC-mobile” around Franklin Farms while Landau did his training runs and rides. McEvilly has the fastest PR time on the Fort Hunt Course where they had just run, and was the Senior counsellor at the Alexandria Department of Rehabilitative Services office. Eammon now provides private vocational rehabilitation, placement, assessment and related services and has helped ABRAMS LANDAU clients in Social Security Disability cases. Finn, a stalwart at the DCRRC monthly Tidal basin and other District area runs, ran with Landau at many mid-week summer races over the years.

The Herndon Reston injury and disability lawyer leaves today to attend the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association (“VTLA”) annual convention. In Williamsburg, Landau is scheduled to be a volunteer at the annual 5 km race Saturday morning. In the afternoon, the ABRAMS LANDAU lawyer will volunteer and direct the annual tennis tournament that he has sponsored and run for 20 years. His tennis tourney will take place at the same time as the annual VTLA golf tournament that pits lawyers, judges and other law office professionals in competition for the “Norman Landau Cup.” This prize is named after Doug Landau’s late father. The silver cup was generously given to VTLA by this year’s lifetime achievement award winner Robert Hall. Mr. Hall was Doug Landau’s first boss when the TriathlonTrialLawyer came to Virginia to practice law. Hall is still a mentor of Landau’s, and he practices with the Reston law firm Hall, Sickels, Frei & Mims.
