Chloë Feucht

LEGAL ASSISTANT

“It’s fulfilling to see a client go from from a chaotic beginning to a peaceful, happy ending with better-than-hoped-for results.”

Chloë joined the Criminal Defense Division of Nichols Zauzig in early 2019. A Manassas native, she graduated from James Madison University with a psychology degree, including a senior capstone project about how brain function can help prove someone’s innocence or guilt in the courtroom.

Key to her role as the initial contact person for clients is “being responsive, not only to questions but also to emotions. Taking clients from terrified and frantic to a calmer state is the first step. I talk with them to rationalize the situation, break it down and find a way to organize it so they feel more in control.” Through it all, Chloë’s mindset is judgement-free. Her wide experience in retail, teaching and hospitality management has involved working with “people of all ages and of all ethnicities, backgrounds and religious beliefs; from preschoolers to people with multiple PhD’s. At the end of the day, I form relationships with people based on mutual respect and strong communication.”

She finds criminal law interesting and exciting, from the smallest details that can greatly impact a case to the often-rewarding outcomes. “It’s fulfilling to see a client go from from a chaotic beginning to a peaceful, happy ending with better-than-hoped-for results.” Chloë likes the close-knit atmosphere at Nichols Zauzig, and says it extends to clients as well. “Since our attorneys and staff have such close working relationships, we treat our clients like family too.”
