The judges of the Fairfax County Circuit Court have named Anne M. Heishman as Commissioner of Accounts for the court. Heishman will take office on July 1, 2020, upon the retirement of the current commissioner, John H. Rust Jr.
Heishman is a partner at the law firm of Dingman Labowitz PC, with a practice focusing on guardianships, conservatorships, estate administration and contested fiduciary matters. She has also served for a number of years as a guardian ad litem for incapacitated adults, and appears regularly before the Northern Virginia Commissioners of Account and Circuit Courts on guardianship and fiduciary matters.
Heishman, a 1995 graduate of James Madison University and a 2003 graduate of the George Mason University School of Law, began her legal career as a law clerk to Fairfax Circuit Judge Michael P. McWeeny.
Rust was appointed Commissioner of Accounts on Jan. 31, 2006, and has served in that position for the past 14 years.
Fairfax Chief Circuit Judge Bruce D. White said, “Jack Rust has served the Court and our community with distinction and honor and his frequent presence in the courthouse will be missed.”
