    The Greater Williamsburg area is an exciting place to live and work, especially because of the large number of entrepreneurs who have built businesses from the ground up.

Whether you need assistance with a commercial or residential closing, or you have questions relating to residential or commercial leasing, we provide experienced advice and counsel to our clients. Zoning law can be a complicated maze of statutes and ordinances. We have ample experience in successful applications for rezoning, variance, and special use permit requests.

The 2-Minute Drill – Your daily legal update

The 2-Minute Drill

We continue to warn about the dangers of email scams, safe emailing, and protecting the attorney-client privilege. Here are a few more reasons why.

1.  In this litigation, in-house counsel for defendant received inadvertent emails from plaintiffs. In-house counsel passed them onto attorneys representing the defendant. The court ruled that act tainted the defendant’s attorneys and ordered them replaced.

2. Mom’s children shared an email account with mom. Mom communicated with her attorneys on that account. Court said that sharing waived her attorney-client privilege.

3. Finally, in what seems a nonsensical decision, a man suspected his wife of an affair. On their shared laptop, he logged into her Google gmail account and found, what he considered incriminating evidence. He turned over the emails. Now he is being prosecuted under an anti-hacking statute.
