Senator John Warner (R-Va.) and Senator Jim Webb (D-Va.) today applauded the Senate’s unanimous vote to confirm Anthony J. Trenga as a federal judge on the United States Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Judge Trenga has been practicing law before federal courts in Virginia for more than 30 years. He has served as lead counsel in more than 50 cases before the federal court in the eastern district of Virginia on a wide range of subject areas.
He is an attorney at the law firm of Miller & Chevalier, where he specializes in litigation and trial practice. Judge Trenga is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and has served as a member of the faculty of the National Trial Advocacy College at the University of Virginia, sponsored by the Virginia CLE Committee of the Virginia Bar Foundation.
He received his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law and completed his undergraduate studies at Princeton University.
“Senator Webb and I have worked closely together to provide the White House with recommendations of outstanding nominees to serve the Eastern District of Virginia,” said Warner. “It is clear to us that Anthony Trenga is eminently qualified to sit as a jurist on this distinguished court.”
“In these past two years in the U.S. Senate, I am pleased that Senator Warner and I have been able to work jointly to ensure that judges appointed to U.S. courts in Virginia are eminently qualified and committed to serving the Commonwealth in a fair and unbiased manner. Mr. Trenga is an outstanding example of our collaboration,” said Webb.
“I want to express my gratitude for the expeditious way the Senate has approved the nomination of Mr. Trenga. He has demonstrated the highest integrity and exceptional legal skills throughout his distinguished career in Virginia and will continue to do so as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia,” Webb concluded.
