Sharon Nelson, a Fairfax lawyer and president of a computer forensics and information security company, will be the Virginia State Bar’s new president-elect.
Nelson filed her petition for the post at the VSB’s annual meeting in Virginia Beach this past June. As of the Oct. 1 deadline, no opponents had stepped forward.
Nelson will be sworn in at the VSB Annual Meeting in June 2012 and will then become president of the VSB in June 2013. David Harless will serve as president from 2012-2013.
