Paralegal Association of Northern Virginia

The Northern Virginia Connection for Professional Paralegals

PANV

The Paralegal Association of Northern Virginia was formed in 2007 and became affiliated with NFPA at that time. Delegates from PANV attend the NFPA Annual Convention in Tampa, FL in the fall of that same year. 

The founders of PANV had all been active members of The National Capital Area Paralegal Association (NCAPA) for many years and felt there was a need for a professional paralegal association in Northern Virginia. The founders in 2007 were: 
    • Karen Axell, RP
    • Suellen Honeychuck, RP
    • Kathi Ingram, RP
    • Melissa Muniz
