While working as a legal patent assistant, Tammy decided to attend law school full-time in Washington, DC. Tammy continued to work at the firm while attending law school and raising her family. After graduating in May 2011, she studied for and passed the Virginia Bar Exam in 2011. Receiving her license to practice law, Tammy began working at PPB as an attorney.
