EXPERIENCE, VISION AND A PASSION FOR JUSTICE
Stacey grew up passionate about our criminal justice system, and she always knew that she wanted to practice criminal law. She graduated from Wake Forest University with a major in Political Science and a minor in Religion. While at the T. C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond, Stacey took every criminal law class offered and participated in an externship program, which allowed her to work in the Richmond Public Defender's Office during her third year of law school.

In addition to prosecuting in both Essex and Henrico counties, she has served as a Public Defender in the City of Richmond and owned her own firm representing clients charged with criminal offenses throughout Central Virginia.

She has extensive trial experience before judges and juries around Central Virginia,and she has been a speaker at trainings for attorneys, EMTs, and victim witness advocates, as well as an instructor at the Henrico County Police Academy.
Stacey is passionate about the oath she took to uphold the Constitutions of the United States and Virginia, and she wants to bring that passion to Chesterfield. Every case, including misdemeanors and felonies, should be handled with the same attention to detail, and each individual that comes before the court should be treated with dignity and respect. Under Stacey's leadership, every member of the Chesterfield County Commonwealth Attorney's Office will appreciate significance of the role they play in our community and the duty that they have to seek justice for all.
