About

Portrait of Nanda DavisI opened my firm in Roanoke, Virginia, in 2014. Since then, I have built a client base of people who find themselves going through what may be the most stressful time of their lives. I love my work, both inside and outside of the courtroom, and I am continually inspired by the resilience and strength of my clients. Originally from Northern Virginia, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia, and then I graduated magna cum laude from George Mason School of Law in 2012.

Mom

  • I am a mom to two wonderful boys. Becoming a mom opened my eyes to the enormous demands placed on caregivers to children. I use that perspective to ensure my clients get a fair hearing by presenting these demands in a clear and persuasive manner.

Competitor

  • When I’m not in the courtroom, I satisfy my competitive spirit by practicing judo and I have competed in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions.

Champion of Other Women

  • I am the past president of the Roanoke Chapter of Virginia Women’s Attorney’s Association, and I have been active on both the state and local boards. I founded and I currently chair the Member Recognition Committee. This committee recognizes that historically the achievements of women have not been as visible as those of our male counterparts, and I work to have the achievements of our members recognized.
  • Recognizing that women may not have enough networking opportunities, I have organized gatherings of women or various ages and backgrounds. I believe also in paying it forward, and I look for opportunities to provide support to younger women.

Speaking Engagements

  • I enjoy speaking engagements on a variety of topics. Some of the topics I am most passionate about are: the practice of family law, representing women who have been the victims of physical and emotional abuse, practicing law as a woman in a male dominated field, how to start your own firm, and juggling the demands of motherhood and a career.
  • I have most recently given presentations for Washington & Lee School of Law, the University of Maryland School of Law, and the Roanoke Valley Paralegal Association.
