Elizabeth Wyland Hodges (December 3, 1940 – July 6, 2018)

“Mom” joined the WarrenLaw team when the current office in Short Pump was opened in 2005 and she managed the firm for many years. Her smile and gentle spirit opened the door to people’s hearts and made them feel comfortable trusting WarrenLaw with their legal problems. Music was her passion and she performed the classical guitar in over 100 concerts with the VCU Community Guitar Ensemble, a group which she helped found in 1986. After a five year battle with cancer mom was promoted to “Guardian Angel” of the firm on July 6, 2018. People say “a life that touches others goes on forever” but we miss her everyday.
