IN THE GAME Chasen & Boscolo partner Benjamin Boscolo doesn’t have a whirlpool in his office, but maybe he should. The D.C. Court of Appeals has recently ruled against workers’ compensation claims by two Boscolo clients: former Washington Mystics player Heidi Burge, and wrestler Bret “The Hitman” Hart. Even though Boscolo came out on the wrong end of both those rulings, the 11-lawyer personal injury firm has built a practice representing athletes. Among clients are players from the Washington Redskins, Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens, Washington Freedom, D.C. United, and Washington Capitals. The firm has offices in Greenbelt and Waldorf, Md., and Falls Church, Va. Boscolo, 43, shares the work with of counsel Gerald Herz, 68. When not counseling athletes, Boscolo represents “regular, old working people” — from lawyers and doctors to deli clerks and janitors. A self-professed sports junkie and frustrated athlete, he says, “This is about as close to professional sports as I’m gonna get.” — Alicia Upano GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY If you’ve practiced law in the District of Columbia over the past five decades, rest assured that Armand Robinson has got your number. Robinson, 79, is editor of The Legal Register, the paperback directory of lawyers’ phone numbers that just weeks ago issued its 50th anniversary edition. This latest Register and all 49 predecessor volumes were produced under Robinson’s stewardship. A Philadelphia native, Robinson came to the nation’s capital to attend George Washington University Law School. In 1952, he hung out his shingle downtown. One day, a friend visiting from the City of Brotherly Love showed Robinson a pocket-size directory of Philadelphia lawyers published by a bank and asked him if a similar listing was available here. Robinson, who knew of no such book, decided, he says, that “if Reader’s Digest could do it, I could do it.” Thus was born The Legal Register. The first volume and all those up to the 1979 edition carried the phone numbers of active D.C. Bar members only. In 1980, Robinson added listings for firms, too, as well as for lawyers in suburban Virginia and in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, Md. The 50th anniversary issue includes e-mail addresses, a first, and is online at www.legalregister.com. “The first years were the toughest,” he says. — Joel Chineson
