The People of Richmond & Fishburne: Cheryl Pearson

Cheryl Pearson has been a key member of the Richmond & Fishburne team for ten years. She is a jack-of-all-trades, assisting with our trusts and estates, real estate, and business practices. Cheryl has a long background in the legal profession, having worked with attorneys Clyde Goldman and Larry McElwain, and also at the Virginia Employment Commission, prior to joining Richmond & Fishburne.

Born in Arlington and raised in Brentsville (where her mother ran the general store), Cheryl came to Charlottesville with her husband Norman in the late 1960's. Aside from their time away for Norman's military service, they've been enjoying life in central Virginia ever since. They've attended Meadows Presbyterian Church for close to thirty years. Cheryl loves a peaceful walk around Chris Greene Lake or a hike with Norman in the Blue Ridge. She also cheers loudly for the Cavaliers (and we don't give her too much grief when she roots for the Hokies, since son Brad attended Virginia Tech!).

Cheryl's family is a priority; she is the proud mother of four and grandmother of six. She was particularly proud this March when her daughter Kendall, a recently ordained Presbyterian minister, performed the marriage ceremony of her son Brad and daughter-in-law Kellye.

Richmond and Fishburne is so pleased and fortunate to have Cheryl Pearson on board.
