Terrell, managing partner of WTP's District of Columbia office.  "The firm has had a large office in D.C., covering the city as well as the Virginia and Maryland suburbs, for 20 years. However, as the firm's Virginia client base has grown, it became imperative to have an office that was convenient to our clients.  The new office replaces and upgrades the firm's previous Virginia space in Alexandria, which was used solely for meetings."

The new office [will] contain 9,000 square feet and office space for 15 attorneys. The initial group of lawyers transferring to the space practice in the area of Community Associations, representing condominium and homeowners' associations and property management companies throughout the Commonwealth.  By September, this initial group will be joined by corporate lawyers and litigators to broaden the services available to clients.
