Gentry Locke Adds Civil Litigation Defense Attorney Nia E. White to Richmond Office
“Nia has demonstrated her capabilities as a litigator early in her career, and we are pleased to welcome her to the firm and know her arrival will add depth to our litigation group,” said Gentry Locke Managing Partner Brett Marston.
White concentrates her practice on advising national corporations in civil litigation matters with an emphasis on premises liability and insurance defense in Virginia state and federal courts. She regularly drafts pleadings, motions and briefs, and manages discovery requests.

While earning her J.D. from William & Mary Law School, White worked as a student attorney with the William & Mary Law School Family Clinic, representing clients of the Legal Aid Society of Eastern Virginia on family law matters. She also served as a student research assistant working on a report proposing new solutions to Richmond’s eviction crisis.
