Overview

"In every case, my goal is to provide practical, cost-effective, and creative solutions both in and out of the courtroom to achieve the best result possible for the client. A thoroughly researched brief, a well-written mediation statement, or a meaningful discussion with opposing counsel can be just as effective at resolving disputes as a trial verdict."

Jaime handles a variety of civil litigation matters, with a particular emphasis on cases arising out of real property disputes, including land use, tax assessment, construction, and landlord/tenant litigation.  Jaime also routinely assists clients with complex business and employment matters (e.g., wage and hour law, restrictive covenants, and employment policies and agreements).

Jaime has experience in both state and federal courts, as well as in alternative dispute resolution.  Her work in multiple practice areas enables Jaime to formulate comprehensive legal and business strategies that not only achieve great results in the courtroom, but also allow her to assist clients in mitigating potential disputes.

Beyond the Law

Beyond the Law

Jaime grew up in Richmond, and despite having left the area multiple times for stints in Washington, D.C. and Wheeling, West Virginia, she has always managed to find her way back home.  Jaime is mom to two children under 2—Oscar and Adela—who keep her on her toes.

When she’s not wrangling small children, Jaime enjoys live music, camping, skiing, reading historical fiction, podcasts, and relaxing at Richmond’s many craft breweries.  A lifelong athlete (and L.C. Bird Hall of Fame inductee), Jaime loves spending time outdoors with her family swimming, biking, and playing ball.
