Last week, Prince William County appointed their newest General District Court Judge – Petula Metzler.
Prince William County’s General District Court handles civil cases, criminal cases, and traffic cases, according to their website.
Metzler, who was working as an attorney at Compton & Duling, L.C., handling civil litigation, land use and zoning, and real estate cases, graduated from the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law, according to her LinkedIn profile.
“If there was ever a person destined to become a Judge, it is Petula Metzler. Her demeanor. Her character. Her intelligence. She is as close to the perfect candidate as I have seen. While we, as Compton & Duling, will miss her, we wish her the best as she embarks on the next chapter in her legal career,” said Compton & Duling Managing Partner Jason Hickman.
