Cathy Krinick is a Newport News native who began her legal career in the Newport News Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office in 1978.  She became very involved in child advocacy as a result of her years of prosecuting cases with child victims.  She spent a number of years working as a consultant for the National Center for the Prosecution of Child Abuse and presented training classes across the United States. 

After 17 years of prosecuting serious criminal cases, Ms. Krinick transitioned into the private practice of law.  Naturally she has defended serious criminal cases on the Peninsula and surrounding localities.  Her years of prosecuting child abusers led her to continue to advocate for the best interests of children in child custody cases.  Often described as a “shark," she has devoted her career to protecting children.
