The Small Firm With a Personal Touch

James River Legal Associates began its life as Alexandria Bankruptcy Center in 2003. Margaret Valois moved the firm to Lynchburg in 2005, and changed the firm’s name to Virginia Bankruptcy Center.

In 2006, Margaret’s husband, Paul, joined the firm as a criminal defense attorney. The firm name changed to James River Legal Associates shortly after that. Since then, the practice has continued to grow and change. We offer representation for many legal needs.

In addition to our attorneys, we have a dedicated staff. Our paralegal and legal assistant have over 20 years of combined experience. Together, the James River Legal Associates’ team offers thoughtful and personal service to our clients.
