Virginia State Bar selects 2022 president-elect
Richmond’s Stephanie Grana is a partner at Breit Cantor Grana Buckner
The Virginia State Bar has chosen Richmond’s Stephanie Grana, a partner with the law firm of Breit Cantor Grana Buckner, as its president-elect for 2022-23.
A personal injury litigator, Grana won nearly 55% of the vote over David Neumeyer of the Virginia Legal Aid Society in Lynchburg. Grana will take over presidency of the VSB from current president-elect, Jay Myerson, in 2022. When Grana begins her term as president she will be the seventh woman to head the 50,000 lawyers of the VSB in its 84-year history.
Grana attended the University of Richmond both for her undergraduate and law degrees, and has devoted her career to litigation and service to the bar. She currently serves on the VSB Executive Committee, Council for the 14th Circuit, the Budget & Finance Committee, and the Nominating Committee. She is also a member of the Boyd Graves Conference, the Virginia Model Jury Instructions Committee, and the working group to study expansion of the Court of Appeals.
She has served as a past president for the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, the American Board of Trial Advocates-Virginia Chapter, the Lewis F. Powell Jr. American Inns of Court, and the Metropolitan Richmond Women’s Bar Association.
