Her caring and compassionate manner helps clients feel comfortable even when navigating very complicated legal issues. Barbara is very family oriented and loves spending time with her husband, Sonny and beagle, Lacie. She loves spending time with her children and three beautiful granddaughters as often as she can.


Valerie Hollar, Estate Planning Paralegal

Valerie fills the role of estate planning paralegal for The Peninsula Center. She holds a Master's Degree in Human Resource Management, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Paralegal Studies. She has over 8 years of experience in the legal industry, where helping clients achieve their goals is her top priority. Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Valerie found TPC in 2017 by way of her husband's service to the USAF. Valerie became interested in estate planning and the legal profession when her grandparents took her along to their estate planning appointment when she was in high school. When she is not busy at TPC, you can find her with her husband and four kiddos, or on a yoga mat, either teaching at various studios around the area, or taking classes and workshops.


Teresa M. Clemons, Office Manager

Teresa moved to Williamsburg in 2004 from Northern Virginia. After working in the Title business for 16 years, she had resigned to stay home and raise her son. After he entered school, she found that she had more time. She started working with TPC as our part-time Bookkeeper in 2011, working only a few hours a week. Over the years, her hours, job description, and duties changed significantly. She has grown right along with TPC, and today fills many roles for our firm. With a background in accounting and a degree in paralegal studies, Teresa is our Office and Human Resource Manager, Accounting Supervisor, part-time Trust and Estate Administration Paralegal, and Marketing Director. As you can see, the firm wouldn't run without her.
