Where are They Now? Regent Lawyers at the VBA

Regent had a reunion of sorts at the Virginia Bar Association's (VBA) Annual Summer Meetings at the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Virginia!

Yvette Nageotte (Regent '95) practices real estate law in Stafford, Virginia and has clients that absolutely adore her - just like I did when she was in law school! Here is Yvette with her husband.

Her twin sister, Yvonne Nageotte (Regent '95), practices family law in Stafford, Virginia also and has recently become a key part of the VBA Domestic Relations Council - what a blast to be working with former students on key family law matters in service to the volunteer state bar.  She also serves as a Judge pro temp in Stafford County Family Court. Here is Yvonne with her husband.

Both women work with their father at Nageotte, Nageotte & Nageotte in Stafford County. I join him in being very proud of their many accomplishments.

The VBA evening gala banquet was opened with a beautiful prayer by VBA Executive Council Chair Pia Patachati, with the entire bar repeating the prayer of Saint Francis - a family prayer for Pia, and incredible encouragement for us all.

At the black tie banquet I was further greeted by other friends from the bar, including Cheshire Eveleigh, of Wolcott Rivers Gates Payne in Virginia Beach, and delightedly reconnected with The Honorable F. Patrick Yeatts (Regent '94), now Campbell County General District Court Judge. I was very grateful he even remembered me!

Finally, Virginia's former Attorney General, Bob McDonnell (Regent '89), was on the gubernatorial debate platform as the VBA constituents heard a healthy debate on the issues facing Virginia is its choice for governor in November of this year - an important race for the state and the nation.

All of these Regent Law alums are now attorneys, judges and elected officials making a difference for families and individuals in Virginia. Bravo to all!

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
