2016 Virginia State Bar - Bar Association of the Year

The Virginia State Bar has named the South Hampton Roads Bar Association 2016 Bar Association of the Year.

The SHRBA was nominated by Jamilah LeCruise of The Law Office of J. D. LeCruise PLLC, who wrote: We work very hard to enrich the lives of both our bar members and those living in the greater community in which we practice. Our members run the spectrum from young lawyers daring at-risk youth to reach beyond themselves, to trail blazers of the civil rights era who dared to integrate the courtrooms of Virginia and prevailed."

The award, sponsored by the VSB Conference of Local Bar Associations, recognizes lasting and exemplary contributions to both the legal community and the community at large in Virginia. The award also recognizes the dedication of local and statewide bar associations and emphasizes the importance of close cooperation between the Virginia State Bar and bar leaders.
