Four score and seven years ago, no seriously.... it has only been one score and seventeen years, sorry I am a comic at heart.
I was born and raised in Southwest Virginia where I graduated from high school at the top of the class, well 2nd anyway, and was the second person in my family to attend college. I was fortunate enough to attend The College of William & Mary. Those years in The College were so filled with history and inspiration from our founding fathers that I was motivated to pursue law as a career. Also during my college years, I worked as a cook in a local candy and confectionery store for which I still have very fond memories of and I feel it has been a major addition to my life. I mean, how many people can say they can write a doctorate level thesis and make five different flavors of fudge at the same time. I graduated from The College in 1998 with my BBA in Accounting and after graduating from William & Mary, I went to law school at Regent University. While in law school, I was fortunate to find job as financial aid counselor helping my fellow classmates through the financial aspects of their graduate school years. This not only appeased my desire to burn the candle at both ends, but also allowed me to give back to the school and my classmates.
I graduated from law school in 2003 and while awaiting the bar results, I worked briefly with the Commonwealths Attorneys Office in Wythe County, VA, where I gained invaluable experience in criminal law. I passed the bar in 2004.
Upon passing the bar, I was hired by the Law Office of Olaf Gebhart in October of 2004. I worked a number of years with the firm and was promoted to managing attorney in 2009 and developed a sizeable bankruptcy practice.
From January of 2011 until April 2013, I gained invaluable experience when I went to work for the Law Office of John W Lee, P.C. It was with this firm that was able to grow more areas of practice and focus more on Divorce and Family Law.
In May 2013, my life was again blessed to have the opportunity to open the new Hampton Office for the Law Office of Steven D. Barnette. Mr. Barnette has been a long time personal friend and so when the chance arose for me to work with him and opening a new office with his firm was simply an offer I could not pass up. At present, we are a growing firm helping people from Hampton to Gloucester.
