One of her passions is helping support the local March of Dimes, Ronald McDonald House, and the West Virginia Child Advocacy Center. She is a native West Virginian and a mother, and has dedicated her life to providing compassionate legal counsel to the Kanawha County area.

While working as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, she handled a wide range of criminal matters ranging from juvenile cases to murder cases. In addition to these responsibilities, Ms. Lord also served on the Kanawha County Juvenile Drug Court Treatment Team. Her legal career in private practice consisted of wide-ranging legal experiences, such as arguing cases before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, appearing regularly in circuit court and family court, and representing clients in abuse and neglect proceedings. The knowledge gained during her diverse legal career is hugely beneficial to her clients.
