Bob Beard is one of the most experienced municipal law and Social Services attorneys in Virginia. Starting with a varied base of experience representing several municipalities, his practice has expanded to include representation of the Departments of Social Services in several jurisdictions. He is experienced in all facets of municipal trial work, including appellate practice.

In his spare time, Bob enjoys acting in Community Theater productions. “Refocusing on something creative gives me energy.  … and in theater concentration is key; you must be intensely focused on what you’re doing on stage, and for me, that translates back to the courtroom.”
