Bio

David W. Lannetti is a judge on the Norfolk Circuit Court, elected to that position by the Virginia General Assembly in 2014. Before that, he served as a substitute judge in both General District Court and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court for more than four years. Judge Lannetti graduated with distinction from the United States Naval Academy and received an M.S. in Management with honors from Troy University. He earned his J.D. from William & Mary Law School, where he was Order of the Coif and served as an executive editor of the William & Mary Law Review and as a Moot Court Justice.


Before his election to the Circuit Court bench, Lannetti was a partner in the law firm of Vandeventer Black LLP. His practice centered on civil litigation, and for several years he was the firm’s Associate Development Department manager. As an attorney, he was recognized as AV®-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, a Virginia “Leader in the Law,” a Virginia Law Foundation Fellow, a Virginia “Super Lawyer,” and a member of Virginia’s “Legal Elite.”


For more than fifteen years, Judge Lannetti has been an adjunct professor at both Regent University and William & Mary Law Schools. He has published numerous articles in legal journals and periodicals and is a frequent lecturer on legal topics.


Judge Lannetti currently serves as chair of the Virginia State Bar (VSB) Standing Committee on Professionalism. Previously, he served on the VSB Council and the VSB Conference of Local Bar Associations Executive Committee. He is a past president of the James Kent American Inn of Court and of the Norfolk & Portsmouth Bar Association (NPBA), where he currently serves on the Board of Directors of the NPBA Foundation. In the local community, he is an active volunteer with the Norfolk Sister City Association, Norfolk Special Olympics, the U.S. Naval Academy, and the Boy Scouts of America.
