 In Memoriam

We acknowledge with tremendous sadness the sudden passing of Albert M. Orgain IV, one of our shareholders and an integral part of our firm for 42 years. Mr. Orgain was one of Virginia's foremost aviation attorneys and was considered an expert in the aviation and insurance industry. His practice included representing clients in commercial transportation, aviation and utility law, and product liability.

The tragic news came as a shock to the Sands Anderson family. In addition to extending our deepest sympathy and attention to supporting the Orgain family, we have also assembled a special team of attorneys and staff to ensure we examine and maintain Mr. Orgain's professional obligations. Should you have any questions regarding a legal or personal matter involving Mr. Orgain, you are encouraged to contact Janet Broadway at 804.783.7222 or jbroadway@sandsanderson.com.

Mr. Goldman was a professor and Distinguished Lecturer in Law at the Catholic University of America Law School. In 2008, he authored the book, "Temptations in the Office: Ethical Choices and Legal Obligations."
