NEW BLOOD Wayne Cohen has been inducted as the new president of the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., the D.C. branch of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. He will remain at the helm of the nearly 500-member local association until May 15, 2005. In 1993, Cohen founded D.C.’s seven-lawyer Cohen & Cohen, which represents the catastrophically injured. “As a group, our goal is to preserve the rights of injured victims,” says Cohen. “As president, I’ll try to involve more members in our programs and increase our charitable agenda.” Also, Linda Correia has taken hold of the presidential reins of the 200-member Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association, the voluntary bar for practitioners representing plaintiffs in employment matters. Correia’s term will end in April 2005. Correia is a partner at seven-lawyer Webster, Fredrickson & Brackshaw, which has offices in the District and Fairfax, Va. “I am going to do my best to make sure that through the collective efforts of MWELA members, employee rights are strengthened in the Washington metropolitan area,” says Correia. — Bethany Broida and Joel Chineson LIVING LEGENDS Jacob Stein and Herbert “Jack” Miller have logged between them 113 years of law practice. And they’re both still going strong. Their long careers were celebrated last week at the D.C. Bar Building in a lunchtime program mounted by the bar’s Law Practice Management Section. As the first two honorees of the Legends of the Law Program, which organizers hope to make an annual occurrence, Stein and Miller were able to share their wisdom and some of their personal experiences with the more than 100 members of the sold-out audience in attendance. His tongue firmly in his cheek, Stein, a partner at 14-lawyer Stein, Mitchell & Mezines, explained why he prefers a small-firm environment. “At a small firm,” he said, “people are kind to you even if you don’t know what you’re talking about. At a big firm, no.” Miller, currently a retired partner at the D.C. office of Baker Botts, but for many years a name partner at Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin, shared his secret for surviving the stress of law practice: “Nothing solves anything better than chopping wood.” — Joel Chineson
