At its Nov. 11, 2019, annual dinner, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Virginia named Tysons partner Rick Holzheimer as its new president, serving a two-year term. Before accepting the post, he was the organization’s vice president. McGuireWoods’ Asian Pacific Lawyers Network sponsored the annual dinner, held at Bistro 1521 in Arlington, Virginia.

During the dinner, Holzheimer presented an award to Judge Maha-Rebekah Abejuela, Virginia’s first Asian-American female judge. She sits on the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

A first-chair trial attorney, Holzheimer concentrates his litigation practice in construction, commercial litigation, government contracting, financial services and real estate. He has chaired the Circuit Court Committee of the Fairfax Bar Association, is a member of Leadership Fairfax Inc., and has served as board member for the Dulles Area Chamber of Commerce, the Asian American Chamber of Commerce, and the University of Virginia’s Asian and Asian Pacific American Alumni Network.

As one of its core values, McGuireWoods actively supports a variety of diversity and inclusion efforts, including through its nationwide Asian Pacific Lawyers Network, which engages in programming and sponsorship aimed at enhancing the career opportunities and network of Asian Pacific American lawyers.
