Occasionally serving as a guardian ad litem, she is also an adjunct faculty member at both the University of Richmond’s School of Law and the School of Professional and Continuing Studies. Nancy is also available to serve as a third-party neutral mediator to help facilitate a settlement between parties.Nancy and her husband, Bruce, live in Henrico County and have two grown children and seven grandchildren. She is very active with her church and regularly volunteers at Hope Thrift. Nancy is the author of Maggie in the Middle, published by Infinity Publishing, a story written from a young girl’s perspective about her parents’ custody battle.

    Sep 15 2018 Nancy was incredibly compassionate when I needed her to be, and tough when I needed that. She managed some truly insulting correspondence from my ex with grace and dignity and always encouraged me to take the high road, which I was able to do (well...most of the time :-) )

    Aug 06 2018 Nancy has been a steadfast partner to our family throughout a collaborative divorce. While not an easy process even when both parties are committed to its success, the preparation and many subsequent years of co-parenting following our divorce were made easier at critical points by Nancy and her colleagues. She has been an ongoing resource to us when we faced significant decisions - providing keen legal advice and helpful referrals when the issues exceeded her expertise. We could not extend a higher recommendation for considering Nancy as a legal resource.

    Aug 06 2018 I found Nancy to be 100{cbbf165febdb5c9e7382d0ea2260dd38549f33437b67133716bb132863876b24} accurate in her advice during a rather trying divorce. We occasionally had a difference of opinion, as I was pretty emotional , but upon reflection, Nancy was seeing things much clearer than I was and stood her ground to ensure the divorce went as smoothly as possible. The outcome could not have been better. The only twist post divorce was handled with swiftness and humor. I recommend Nancy to all my friends. Intelligence, experience, maturity and humor. What more could you want?
