Virginia Business Magazine names Monica T. Monday to their 2022 Virginia Power 500 List
Excerpt from Virginia Business Magazine, Virginia 500 – The 2022 Power List, Vol. 3, September 2022.
Monday sits at the helm of a fast-growing Virginia law firm and heads the firm’s appellate practice. Gentry Locke doubled the size of its Richmond office in 2021, adding nine attorneys to expand its criminal and government investigations and renewable energy practices, moving it from the state’s ninth largest firm to the eighth.
A William & Mary law graduate, she is a past chair of the Virginia Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section Council and sits on the board of directors for the Harvest Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life of people in Martinsville and Henry County by improving opportunities for economic development, education and health care.
Monday was the first person in her family to graduate from college – though her mother graduated the year after her. She worked full time and began putting herself through school while Monday was a teen, a feat that Monday greatly admires.
