Gammiel Poindexter

Managing Partner

Gammiel Poindexter has been practicing law for over 50 years. Upon finishing law school at Louisiana State University, she made her way to our nation’s capital and started her legal career working in the public sector. After some time in Washington, D.C., Attorney Poindexter moved to Surry County, Virginia, where she became the first African American elected Commonwealth’s Attorney in 1975. Attorney Poindexter would serve as the Surry Commonwealth’s Attorney for the next two decades.

After already having an illustrious legal career that spanned nearly three decades, Attorney Poindexter would be appointed to serve as a judge for the General District Court of Virginia’s Sixth Circuit. She served as a judge from 1995 until she retired in 2007. After Attorney Poindexter stepped down from serving as a judge, she returned to the law firm that she and her late husband, Gerald Poindexter, started when they first arrived in Surry, Virginia.

Today, at nearly 80 years of age, Attorney Poindexter is still committed to the practice of law. She is the proud mother of two children, John and Chris Poindexter, who are also attorneys, and four wonderful grandchildren.
