I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to have a couple of cases with Mr. Sandground.  I remember him instructing me about how to properly cook a wild goose while he deposed my client in his Tyson's corner office.  To this day, I don't know whether he was really trying to teach me a recipe or whether this was some sort of a strategy to distract me from defending the deposition.  Either way, Mr. Sandground was very charming and entertaining to be around.  He will be missed by me, our firm, and the domestic bar.

I had the pleasure and yes the pain to have had Mark as a formable opponent in many cases during the years.  Throughout I learned that Mark had an incredible sense of humor and although some of his arguments did not pass the straight face test, nonetheless he taught me that anything goes and he was not afraid to argue the law, if the law were against you, argue the facts and if they were against you, then just argue.  He was a rare individual and truly will be missed.  Here's to you Mark, May you rest in peace.

Mark was formidable in the courtroom, but so very kind to me throughout the years in all of our interactions.  When my father passed away 10 years ago, he wrote me a lovely note which I still have to this day.  RIP Mr. Sandground. You will be missed.
