Arlington, VA —  As reported through multiple media sources, Leo Fisher, Bean Kinney & Korman’s managing shareholder, and his wife were savagely assaulted and repeatedly stabbed in their home by intruders, identified as Andrew Schmuhl and Alecia  Schmuhl, husband and wife.  Alecia Schmuhl was an associate attorney with the firm from February 13, 2013, through October 28, 2014.  As the matter is a subject of an active police investigation, the firm is unable to comment further on the circumstances of her employment and separation from the firm.

We are shocked and horrified by the facts of the matter as presented at this morning’s bond hearing for Ms. Schmuhl, and entirely support the decision to deny her bond.  Our hearts go out to a wonderful colleague and his beloved wife.  We are doing everything possible to support them through this ordeal and pray for their recovery.  We are confident in the ability of the judicial process to achieve a just outcome and will fully cooperate with the Fairfax County investigative authorities to assure that those who have committed these unspeakable offenses against good people are fittingly punished for their actions.
