News for Our Members

1. The Attorney General of Virginia, the Young Lawyers Division of The Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks invite you to participate in the fun-friendly Statewide 2014 Legal Food Frenzy to help fill the shelves with nutritious food at the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula. Over the past seven years, law firms, legal organizations, and law schools who participated in the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy have raised the equivalent of more than 10 million pounds of food. This year, our hope is to raise even more food and funds, so that we can meet the increased demand at the seven Virginia Foodbanks . To learn more about getting involved and to register to participate in support of the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula, please visit www.legalfoodfrenzy.com or http://www.hrfoodbank.org/eventdetail/85/legal-food-frenzy.html.

2.  We have a limited opportunity to effectively express our thoughts to our legislators on the necessity of restoring the open Circuit Court judgeship and to advocate for the sixth seat as recommended by the recent Virginia Judicial Workload Assessment Report. The session convened today will move quickly and keeping this issue as a priority requires your continuing help.

I have listed in-session contact information for the members of the general assembly who represent the City of Newport News for your convenience. A phone call to the staffers and/or an email to your member will be effective in keeping this matter on the forefront.

This is important to our friends and neighbors as well as clients to assure access to the Courts in a timely manner.
