Dear Readers,

Just as we all need banks and dentists, there aren’t many of us who don’t require an attorney at some point in life…if not really often for some. Fortunately, we have plenty of top legal minds to choose from in Tidewater.

Lisa Richmon talks to two such local attorneys, Neal Schulwolf and Brian Wainger, about their approach to clients, which is enlightening for very different reasons. The article begins on page 13.

But not everyone who graduates from law school continues in the field. The Commonwealth of Virginia’s Speaker of the House, Eileen Filler-Corn is a perfect example. She was in Tidewater during Sukkot. Page 15.

Valarie and Matt White are finding fulfilling creative moments after decades spent working in the legal field. They’ve both picked up paint brushes and are expressing themselves through art. And, they’re selling some pieces, too. Page 16.

On page 21, you’ll read about a former assistant attorney general for Wisconsin who is crazy for mustard…so much so that he runs one of the ‘most unusual museums’ in the nation, the Mustard Museum. I happen to prefer mustard over most condiments, so if I ever find myself in Madison, Wisconsin, the museum will certainly be on my itinerary.

Even the new CEO of Hadassah is a former prosecutor. Read about her on page 22.

In addition to these articles and more, this section features some terrific advertisers. We hope that if you need the services of an attorney, CPA, investment advisor, banker, or just a place to eat, that you’ll consider these folks.

Stay safe and legally sound!
