Hoang sat in on a workshop by Colleen Quinn, an attorney with Locke & Quinn. This workshop, “Family Formation, Protection and Preservation for LGBT Families in VA,” was about what options exist for adoption or assisted reproductive technology. It also covered estate planning and joint custody orders. “Pretty much giving an overview of how we can create and preserve families in Virginia for same-sex couples and give them as much legal power as possible,” Quinn said.
Quinn believes, soon, these issues will be a human issue and not just a LGBT issue. “The more routine we make it [passing equality bills] the more routine, hopefully, it will continue to be.” Said Quinn.
Quinn also presented on employment law tips on an attorney panel at the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Richmond Chapter, January program “Smart Choices: Creating and Maintaining Your Business the Right Way.
