Virginia is a life-long resident of Northern Kentucky. She is the daughter of a Peruvian immigrant whose mother raised her by herself after her father passed away when she was five years old. She became a lawyer to help people. On the first day of law school, her professor asked, how many of you are here to simply make money in a corporate setting and how many of you are here to serve the public and help people. Out of the 120 students in that class, she was one of only five people who raised their hand to serve the public and help people. Virginia represents her clients diligently with a great degree of compassion and care. She advocates aggressively for her clients with a desire to serve the best interests of children. She has a vast array of clients from every socio-economic and demographic background.

Virginia graduated from Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2007 with her Juris Doctor and cum laude honors. While in law school, she was a member of the trial advocacy team and interned for the Campbell County Commonwealth Attorney's Office. She is dually licensed in Kentucky and Ohio and has been admitted to practice in the Eastern District of Kentucky Federal District Court. Virginia established and grew her firm as a solo practitioner for many years, focusing on the areas of family and criminal law. She has experience in bankruptcy, small estate planning and she has received training through the Supreme Court of Ohio to provide mediation and parenting coordination services.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
