In this supplement, you will meet 32 special Virginia lawyers – accomplished men and women who have improved the legal profession in Virginia and left their individual marks in the law of the commonwealth.
They are the Class of 2023 of the Virginia Lawyers Hall of Fame, brought to you by Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
During the course of each year, Virginia Lawyers Weekly celebrates leading lawyers who set the standard for other lawyers in our Leaders in the Law program. We honor promising younger lawyers, or those within 10 years of their bar admission, with the Up & Coming Lawyers awards.
And we salute law firm support personnel with our Unsung Legal Heroes program.
The Hall of Fame honors senior lawyers – those age 60 or older, or who have practiced law for 30 years or more.
Criteria for selection to the Hall include career accomplishments, contributions to the development of the law in Virginia, contributions to the bar and to the commonwealth and efforts to improve the quality of justice in Virginia.
We were very pleased with the many nominations we received and the excellence of the class of 2023. And we are looking forward to next year’s Hall of Fame event already.
In 2019 we added a category for posthumous honors for outstanding lawyers who are no longer with us, but whose examples and fi ne work live on and deserve celebration.
The Class of 2023 was honored at a recognition awards event at the John Marshall Ballrooms in Richmond on March 28.
To the members of the class, we are so proud to share your accomplishments with the legal community and we give you our heartiest congratulations!
