Now in its 13th year, Virginia Lawyers Weekly’s Leaders in the Law program recognizes attorneys who are setting the standard for other practitioners in Virginia. Leaders are named for changing the law, serving the community, changing practice, or improving Virginia’s justice system, among other accomplishments.

These lawyers are considered to be the future leaders of the profession.
