Ms. Hicks graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English.

The majority of Vanessa Hicks' work comes in Southern Virginia, which makes her a unique addition to the firm because most of our other attorneys focus on the Northern Virginia area. While the laws are the same throughout the state, there are many things that make practicing in Southern Virginia different than practicing in the Northern part of the state. Her knowledge of local judges and prosecutors allow her to aggressively pursue the best possible result in each case that she handles. The benefit of her local experience is felt in every case she tries, and she prides herself on working tirelessly to make sure that all of her clients are represented to the best of her ability.
