In Memoriam: U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg

Lautenberg 2011Avalon marks the recent passing of our client and colleague, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg(D-NJ). As the oldest member of the Senate, and the last WWII veteran serving, Senator Lautenberg was a true legend in Washington—responsible for legislation that affected millions of Americans, including banning smoking on airplanes, preventing domestic abusers from possessing guns, raising the drinking age to 21, and co-writing the new GI Bill for the 21st Century. We are proud to have worked on Senator Lautenberg’s campaign, and we join all Americans in mourning the death of this principled, collegial, and effective public servant, who spent his life serving his country.
