Stephen G. Judy
Mr. Judy’s education includes a Bachelor’s degree from George Mason University (1985) and a Juris Doctor from Regent University (1995). Before earning his law degree, Mr. Judy served as a police officer in Blacksburg, Virginia and then as a juvenile probation counselor for both Fairfax County and Stafford County, Virginia. Being well acquainted with the functions of the court system and having a desire to serve in a greater capacity led Mr. Judy to pursue a law degree in 1992. The same year he graduated from law school (1995), Mr. Judy began a general practice of law in the Fredericksburg area working with clients in the areas of juvenile and domestic relations law, criminal and traffic offenses, real estate, and wills and trusts. Mr. Judy’s interest in real estate led him to work briefly with the real estate firm of Buck, Anderson & Associates before joining the staff of the Spotsylvania County Attorney’s office as Deputy County Attorney in 2000. He served in that position until 2006 when he transferred to Stafford County to serve the County in the same capacity. During his years with local government, Mr. Judy handled matters involving land use, planning and zoning, contracts, code enforcement, drafting ordinances, and employment law. In 2008, Mr. Judy left public service to act as in-house counsel for W.J. Vakos & Company, a commercial developer in Fredericksburg, Virginia. In 2010, Mr. Judy took a position as in-house counsel for Marstel-Day, LLC, a federal contractor with its principal offices in Fredericksburg that provides environmental and land use consulting to the Department of Defense and other government agencies. After four years at Marstel-Day, Mr. Judy decided to return to private practice and joined the staff of Woehrle Dahlberg Jones Yao, PLLC as an associate where he was engaged in a general practice with a focus on assisting small businesses and non-profits, particularly local churches with business and real estate issues. Mr. Judy also handled estate planning, land use, real estate, and eminent domain matters.
Mr. Judy’s work in local government and his experience as in-house counsel has provided him with invaluable knowledge in numerous areas of the law including; real estate and real property, land use and eminent domain, environmental law, government procurement and acquisition regulations, business formation and non-profit law. Mr. Judy has taken his years of experience to open his own office, known as Stephen G.

Mr. Judy has a special involvement with mission efforts of the Church in Kenya where he has traveled twice with other Church members in connection with the international organization known as Food for the Hungry, striving to reduce hunger and improve the living conditions and develop life-long relationships with the native people in a small village located in northern Kenya and assisting the villagers to establish safe food and water supplies and educational opportunities for the village’s children. Locally, Mr. Judy has served on the Board of Directors for the Fredericksburg Pregnancy Center (Choices) and he and his wife have been active supporters of the Greater Fredericksburg Area ‘Young Life’ and ‘Young Lives’ organizations.
