Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore opens Lynchburg office
Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore LLP, a Virginia law firm based in Roanoke, is opening a law office in Lynchburg. The firm’s newest partner, Herschel V. Keller, will head the Lynchburg office.
“We are growing our firm and enhancing services to clients in the business communities both in Lynchburg and along the Route 29 and 460 corridors,” Monica Monday, Gentry Locke’s managing partner said in a statement. “At Gentry Locke, we travel and use technology to reach clients in many states, but sometimes it’s important to have a permanent presence where a significant segment of our clients work and live.”
Keller represents businesses through his practice, which includes corporate and business Law, commercial construction law and litigation, employment law, and complex contract drafting and negotiation. Keller lives in Lynchburg, where he has practiced law for the past 15 years. He is active in the community, including serving as past president of the Central District Committee for the Virginia Associated General Contractors.
Keller earned his law degree from the University of Richmond’s T. C. Williams School of Law and was admitted to the Virginia bar in 1997.
