Law Alumna to Hold Circuit Court Judgeship in Virginia

Congratulations to Louise DiMatteo, a 1989 graduate of the Washington and Lee School of Law, who has gotten the nod for a circuit court judgeship from her local delegation to the Virginia General Assembly. As icing on the cake, she also received the highest possible recommendation for the post from the Arlington Bar Association Judicial Screening Committee.

Louise has been an assistant county attorney for Arlington County since 2004. She has previously worked as an assistant county attorney and a senior assistant public defender in Fairfax County and as an insurance attorney with the firm of Siciliano, Ellis, Dyer & Bocarosse. She earned her undergraduate degree, in history, from the University of Virginia. She also is the president-elect of the Arlington Bar Association.

The judgeship she will occupy is one of two recent vacancies on the 17th Judicial Circuit of Virginia, which includes the cities of Arlington and Falls Church.
