Prior to founding her own law firm, Virginia Prodan Law Firm, she worked as a licensed attorney in Bucharest, Romania for 10 years. Virginia Prodan was born and raised in a non-Christian home. In Romania, after she accepted Christ, Virginia, as an attorney, defended churches and individuals against the country’s religious and human rights persecution during the communist regime of the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.
Many of the human rights and religious cases she defended were broadcast on Radio Voice of America, Free Europe and published in newspapers like the Christian Science Monitor. These cases were also featured in the United Nation reports and the U.S. Department of State reports on violations of human rights during the regime.
Because her work was considered “dissident activity”, the Romanian Secret Police, Securitate, used every possible means of intimidation, house arrest, interrogating her, searching her house and office daily, even threatening to kill her or her family. Exiled from Romania, her passion for working on religious liberty cases brought her to the U. S. in the late 80s.

“Twenty-four years ago, I was a political refugee exiled from communist Romania to freedom in America. But today, America is in need of freedom. Socialism is spreading in America like a horrible sickness. It is time for those of us who experienced socialism to speak up. Socialism is a false ideology and is contrary to the American capitalism system. American capitalism promotes free-market and individual freedom, while the Socialist system replaces the free market with government control and eradicates private property, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, religious rights, and national self-determination.”
