Regent Law Alumna Honored as Top 40 Under 40

At a reception on Tuesday, Oct. 11, alumnus Corrynn Peters ('03) was honored as an Inside Business "Top 40 Under 40." Inside Business, Hampton Roads' business journal, chose forty professionals within the region's seven cities who not only demonstrate excellent business skill, but are active community members.

Peters is a partner at Phillips & Peters, PLLC. After spending three years as a judicial law clerk, Peters began practicing domestic relations law. "The professors I encountered while at Regent instilled in me a desire to strive for excellence. They also reinforced my belief that the practice of law is a service, not just a career," she said. In 2010, she began her own law firm with colleague and fellow Regent Law alum Kimberly Phillips ('05).

Peters also volunteers with youth at her church, First Baptist Church of Norfolk. She is involved with the Chesapeake Bar Association and the Norfolk-Portsmouth Bar Association. Other community involvement includes the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia, the annual Legal Food Frenzy, the international aid organization World Vision, and the Triple R Ranch for Youth camp.

"I was so impressed with the number of honorees who have started their own charities, foundations and programs to help a community, locally, nationally and internationally. I was humbled by their work," said Peters, noting that her personal faith in God is what drives her own impressive resume.
