Virginia was raised on a cattle ranch near Crater Lake National Park and understands both the challenges facing agriculture ventures, and the value of common sense in addressing them. She works with property owners facing regulatory roadblocks in attempts to use their land for recreation or business purposes. From obtaining a dock permit to providing advice on complex land use and environmental regulations, Virginia finds workable solutions by listening to clients and applying her diverse experience in agriculture, technology and litigation.
Virginia navigates complex land use regulations, SEPA mitigation and entitlement issues to resolve disputes and move projects forward. She also represents clients in administrative and judicial appeals of land use decisions.
In addition to her natural resources, real estate and construction work, Virginia has years of experience representing clients in copyright and trade secret litigation, as well as defending professionals in malpractice actions. Before becoming a lawyer, she worked with network and messaging technologies for prominent local technology firms.
