The Next Big Thing: Roberts Law PLLC
Dear Readers, this month I momentarily break from our usual content about the law to announce important news in our firm. For the past three years, the New River Valley has welcomed me and my solo practice and allowed me to build a successful business and a thriving practice. I am humbled by the welcome that you and your neighbors have extended. It’s been a wonderful experience, this solo adventure of mine, but there comes a point when it’s no longer possible to grow as just one person. It’s a good problem to have, but it limits the future of New River Law as a solo venture. I alone cannot continue to keep the pace of the practice’s growth while maintaining my high standards of advocacy and results.
Fortunately, I did not have to look far to find an excellent candidate to build a firm with. My husband, Matt Roberts, has been working in his own solo practice here in the New River Valley since joining the Virginia bar. Matt is a graduate of the University of Toledo School of Law with his Bachelors’ from Xavier University. His criminal law practice is thriving and he shares my goals of zealous representation and energized advocacy. In his eleven years of experience in the New River Valley, he has earned a stellar reputation for superior counsel. He’s also run into the same problem I’m encountering: we can’t continue to grow on our own. For that reason, in 2020, Matt and I will be merging our practices to form Roberts Law PLLC.
How will this affect your case? In the immediate future, our existing clients will not likely notice the change. Nor do you need to take any action to prepare for the transition. The merger will allow for greater efficiencies in the practice, but much of this is in behind the scenes administration. You will have the same access and service from the attorney you’ve hired and you trust, supported by effective case management and smooth processing. Once the new firm is established, we will be able to expand by adding staff and assistants as needed. This additional growth potential is the true goal of the merger: to ensure the same high standards of performance in our cases even as we serve more people.
Matt and I both know that our individual practices would not have succeeded without the support of this community. We are so grateful to the New River Valley. We are also excited for this next step, in which we join forces to better meet the needs of the community. Thank you for supporting New River Law, and I will be thrilled to join you in 2020 as part of Roberts Law PLLC.
