Meet Our New Associate – Virginia Josey
The team at Buzzell, Welsh & Hill is happy to welcome Virginia Josey, a new associate attorney with the firm. She’ll practice personal injury law, workers’ compensation and domestic family law.
Virginia grew up in Pine Mountain, Ga., near Callaway Gardens, and attended college at Georgia Southern. She made her way to Macon in 2016, where she attended Mercer Law School.
Virginia gained a rich work history starting in law school, clerking for Chief Judge Howard Simms of the Bibb County Superior Court and working in the Oconee Judicial Office. As an attorney, she practiced insurance defense for two and half years with the Nolan Law Firm, before deciding she’d rather represent personal injury clients instead of the insurance companies.
She knew of Buzzell, Welsh & Hill from the firm’s reputation in the Macon community, but she got the chance to know some of the attorneys better during a shared case. “I had the opportunity to work with Buzzell, Welsh & Hill as opposing counsel,” said Virginia. “I knew then that I wanted to work with their team every day.”
Since joining the firm in September, Virginia has settled in with the other attorneys and staff. “Everyone is so hardworking and willing to assist,” she said. “I love the work I’m doing, and I’m truly honored to have the chance to help people.”
Virginia maintains an active volunteer life. She serves on the board of the Middle Georgia Alliance to End Regional Trafficking. She’s a child advocacy counsel for Stepping Stone Advocacy Center. And she is a mock trial coach for law students. Virginia is also treasurer for the Middle Georgia Women’s Law Association. Lastly, she is also a representative of the Georgia Young Lawyer’s Division Middle District.
When she’s not serving clients or the community, Virginia likes to bake and spend time outside with her husband, also an attorney in town, and their two dogs.
