Virginia General Assembly Approves New Judges for Fairfax

Earlier this year, we posted about Virginia’s lack of funding for judicial positions in Fairfax County.

We are pleased to report that in its recent session, the Virginia Assembly confirmed the funding for one of two vacancies on the Fairfax General District Court.

On or about July 1, 2013, two new judges will be sworn in:  John M. Tran – Fairfax Circuit Court and Richard E. Gardiner – Fairfax General District Court.

“This is good news all around,” says Herndon trial lawyer Doug Landau.  “The courts in Fairfax County are overwhelmed with cases and not enough judges to try them.  This means delays and, in my opinion, justice delayed is justice denied!  Kudos to the Fairfax Bar Association for marshaling the resources needed to push for judicial funding.”

Contact Abrams Landau if we can be of any assistance to or someone you know (703-796-9555).
