Spiders are leaders — and they pave the way for others through their determination, desire to make a difference, and their dedication to change traditional constructs

Dontaé Bugg, L’06, was profiled in The Washington Post recently for his impressive career to date and also because he was elected as Fairfax County’s first African American judge in nearly 25 years. He has 13 years of criminal and family law background, and even launched his own firm in 2010.

“My practice took me all over the state and D.C.,” Bugg said,  “…and I think somebody with my experience and background would be a great way to be of service.”

The article states that Virginia state Sen. Scott A. Surovell backed Bugg for judge in the General Assembly and said his performance on a number of cases “turned heads” in the legal community.

Congratulations to Dontaé for his recent appointment!
