Leonard C. Heath, Jr.


Len currently serves as the President-elect of the Virginia State Bar, the state agency that licenses and governs the approximately 32,000 lawyers who are in good standing across the Commonwealth of Virginia. He will be sworn in as President of the Virginia State Bar in June, 2018. Len is the first attorney from the Virginia Peninsula to serve in this capacity in over 50 years.

Len has extensive experience in trying cases across Virginia, in both state and federal courts. He has handled a wide variety of legal matters, ranging from personal injury and estate litigation cases to cases involving business disputes and real estate litigation. This experience has earned him a place on the coveted Super Lawyers' list, and has also helped him secure an "AV Preeminent" rating from Martindale Hubbell and a "Superb" rating from AVVO.

Len was recently invited to become a Fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America, which is a close-knit, peer-selected, and aggressively diverse honorary society of 3,500 trial lawyers across the country. Less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers are invited to join this organization.
