The Virginia Trial lawyers Associaiton’s (“VTLA”) Annual Convention is jam-packed with lectures, seminars, specialty sessions and inspiring speeches. There are also athletic events that TriathlonTrialLawyer Doug Landau has sponsored, directed and participated in over the last 25 years. This year, the busy Herndon Reston area injury and disability lawyer was a volunteer at the 7:30 AM “Fun Run.” Marking 3 key points along the rainy, wet course through Colonial Williamsburg, Landau finished his duties and returned to the starting line only to find out that the field took a wrong turn, ran an extra mile and therefore the results were being appealed !
TheAthletesLawyer then had a quick breakfast with the judges and then drove to run in a Colonial Road Runners 5 km. at Jamestown High School (see Wednesday’s Post). He then visited with clients in Williamsburg and Toano, Virginia and returned to the Convention site after lunch. While judges, lawyers, paralegals, etc., participated in the Golf Tournament for the Norman Landau Cup, Doug Landau had to prepare for the Tennis Tournament. Because of the rainy weather, Landau reserved the College of William & Mary indoor tennis courts. There, ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd. once again sponsored the VTLA Tennis Tournament. For more about this “Court Appointment,” see tomorrow’s post.
