Suing someone who works in DC, but case is in Virginia

My former tenant owes me 3 months rent, late fees and court fees. The

apartment was in Virginia. She works in DC. Now that she has moved, I have

served her at her place of employment in DC

My former tenant is a paralegal who works for a law firm in DC. The law firm

has refused to answer the court's garnishment summons or garnish my

tenants wages. I thought it was illegal for a company to refuse to answer a

garnishment summons.

I called and a person said they are not bound to answer a garnishment

summons in Viriginia and that the dispute was between me and my tenant,

and not me and the law firm.

What should I do? Do I have to start a whole new case in DC for the amount

that is owed me?
