In today’s episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer® podcast, I chat with Margeaux Thomas, founder and CEO of Thomas Law.

In addition to managing her own law firm, Margeaux has held numerous bar associations positions and served on various non-profits boards. Margeaux is currently on the Board of Directors of the Old Dominion Bar Association, she is the current Vice-Chair of the Fairfax Bar Association Continuing Legal Education Committee, and in 2022 she was selected to serve on the Alexandria Bar Association Judicial Screening Committee and accepted as a member of the George Mason Inn of Court.
