On Sept. 23, 2020, the board of directors of the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society (CVLAS) elected McGuireWoods senior counsel Christopher E. Trible to serve as board president.
Based in Richmond, Chris is a member of McGuireWoods’ Products, Environmental & Mass Tort Litigation Department, helping U.S. and international clients manage risk and solve their most challenging litigation issues. He advises and defends automotive, retail, consumer product and healthcare industry clients in high-exposure cases alleging product defects and recalls, consumer fraud and misrepresentation, and other mass torts and class actions.
In addition to his practice with McGuireWoods, Chris is an advocate for pro bono services, primarily representing victims of domestic violence who seek protective orders against their abusers. He co-chairs McGuireWoods’ Richmond office Pro Bono Committee and leads the protective order program for the Triage Project, a partnership among the CVLAS, McGuireWoods and others. Chris formerly sat on the board of directors of the Legal Aid Justice Center, and he is a former chair of the Richmond Bar Association’s Pro Bono Committee.
With offices in Richmond, Charlottesville and Petersburg, CVLAS is a nonprofit community of lawyers who provide free legal services to low-income individuals in civil cases and preventative legal education in local communities.
