On Tuesday, March 28, 2023, the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board ordered the suspension of Henrico attorney Elizabeth Kathryn Brown’s license to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia over her felony convictions.

The case is styled ‘In the Matter of Elizabeth Kathryn Brown,’ case no. 23-000-127931.

In a Trial Court Order dated December 2, 2022, filed before the Virginia State Bar, Brown was arraigned and pled guilty to attempted first-degree murder, 3 charges of assault and battery on a law enforcement officer, and arson of an unoccupied building.

Based on these convictions, the Board deemed it appropriate to enter an order suspending Brown and ordered the latter to appear for a rule to show cause hearing.

The disposition reads:

“It is ORDERED, pursuant to the Rules of Court, Part 6, Section IV, Paragraph 13-22, that the license of Elizabeth Kathryn Brown to practice law within the Commonwealth of Virginia be, and the same is, hereby SUSPENDED, April 3, 2023.

It is further ORDERED that Elizabeth Kathryn Brown appear before the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board at the State Corporation Commission, Courtroom A, 1300 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, at 9:00 a.m., on April 28, 2023, to show cause why her license to practice law within the Commonwealth of Virginia should not be further suspended or revoked.”

Prior to the suspension, Ms. Brown maintained her law practice in Henrico. She attended the University of Richmond School of Law. She has been licensed in Virginia since 2010. Her info can be found on Super Lawyers.
