Ms. Finnerty and Ms. Kramer will begin their new roles effective October 16th, 2020. Practice Group Leaders are tasked with providing legal leadership, management, marketing, and client satisfaction strategies within their respective practice groups.

Meghan Finnerty is a commercial litigator and experienced appellate lawyer.

Crystal Kramer is a Principal Attorney in the Landlord Representation practice group. Her practice is focused on representing landlords and property managers of residential and commercial real estate in Virginia. This representation includes Fair Housing disputes and all litigation associated with lease disputes, including breach of lease, unlawful detainer actions, and tenant's assertion actions. She also spends a substantial amount of time on pro bono representation through the Housing Panel of the Northern Virginia Pro Bono Law Center as well as for various animal rights nonprofit organizations. She is part of Offit Kurman's OK R.I.S.E. (as the Leadership & Advancement Committee Chair), the OK Women LEAD Marketing Task force, the Fairfax Bar Association, and the Alexandria Democratic Committee.
