Pitt Law Graduate Joley Eason named Top 40 Under 40 by Richmond Style Weekly
Richmond, VA’s Style Weekly recently named Joley Eason (’12) a 2014 Top 40 Under 40 for her work in elder law and care.
“Working with seniors is not something I chose – I felt called,” Eason told Style Weekly. At Pitt Law, Eason served as a certified legal intern for the Elder Law clinic where she assisted seniors and their families in a variety of legal matters including as a Medicare counselor.
After graduating from Pitt Law in 2012, Eason’s journey took her to Thompson McMullan in Richmond where she works with elder law clients one-on-one and also includes pro bono cases in her work. Her pro bono work recently earned her the Krista Latshaw Pro Bono award from the Legal Information Network For Cancer where she was highlighted for her zealous advocacy for patients.
Eason also has become known for regularly speaking on topics in elder law and Medicare and Medicaid, including upcoming speaking engagements for National Business Institute and Virginia CLE seminars.
