Pia is returning to private practice after spending the majority of the last five years in public service as a prosecutor, handling major and violent crimes for the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for Arlington County and the City of Falls Church. She is committed to serving the community through effective legal advocacy, having spent her early career doing indigent defense work and family law.
Pia attended Northwestern University where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. On Saturdays during football season, you can still find her and her puppy cheering for her Wildcats if she is not doing community service with her beloved sorors of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. After finishing college, Pia returned home to Virginia and obtained her Juris Doctorate from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary in 2007.
