In 1958 Richard F. McPherson joined the firm, then known as Nelson, McPherson & Summers. Several years later the firm moved its offices to its present location in Staunton, VA. Victor M. Santos joined the firm in 1976, and thereafter it became the law firm of Nelson, McPherson, Summers & Santos, L.C., which is what it is called today.
