Virginia Lawyers Weekly has named Lori Elliott Jarvis, a partner at Hunton & Williams, one of its 2012 Influential Women of Virginia. The honor, according to a press release, is given to Virginia women “who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities and society at large.”
Jarvis has shown deep commitment to community service and pro bono work, especially giving legal service to women who are victims of domestic violence. She helped form the Women’s Shelter Program at Hunton & Williams and also has served on the boards of both the Legal Services Corporation of Virginia and ESI Connections (now called HomeAgain), an organization that provides services for the homeless.
Outside of her pro bono work, Jarvis focuses on environmental litigation and mass and toxic torts, among other areas.
