Accomplishments

 

  • Successful track record before the Virginia General Assembly, agencies of state government, and on the local level in advocating clients' concerns and positions. Responsible for statutory resolution of a 20-year-old turf battle between numerous professional groups. Created a uniform statutory method to determine the competency and regulate the licensing of construction tradesmen in Virginia. Active role in the elimination of a major utility's longtime practice of competing with the private sector in certain markets. The elimination of this practice was later upheld by the Virginia Supreme Court. Successfully represented clients' positions with regard to statutory amendments to Virginia's lien, prompt pay, and procurement laws. Lead lobbyist for successful home health licensing legislation.
  • Outstanding record of managing associations efficiently and profitably. Guided 35-year-old association through turbulent period of transformation which eventually led to the creation of a new association. Served as spokesman for the group advocating this change, and as such, was responsible for guiding the membership of the old association through an evaluation of the issues in preparation for a formal vote on the proposed reorganization and asset transfer. Both items were approved by a four-to-one vote of the membership. This unique and successful effort received national trade journal coverage.
