Hearing Committee Member Spotlight: Beau Sagona

Beau Sagona is a hard-working lawyer with a busy practice, yet he always manages to find time to give back to his profession. Currently, Beau serves as the Chair of a Hearing Committee for the Disciplinary Board. He found his way to the Board after meeting the Board’s Administrator, Donna Roberts, during his service as Chair of the Court’s Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Committee. At the time, the MCLE Committee shared office space with the Board, and while attending to the business of the MCLE Committee, Beau was recruited to speak at the 2013 LADB Free CLE series. He agreed. Since that time, he has volunteered as a speaker for the series on three separate occasions, each time making five stops across the state to speak on topics that are often requested by attendees: estate planning and administration, and the division of retirement benefits in divorce.
