From the web page of the Virginia State Bar:
Kathryn R. Montgomery has been promoted to deputy bar counsel for the Virginia State Bar. She will assist Bar Counsel Edward L. Davis in overseeing professional regulation of Virginia’s 45,000 lawyers, and she will continue to prosecute ethics cases.
Montgomery has been an assistant bar counsel for the VSB since 2003. She is a native of Danville and holds bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Virginia. She practiced in Arizona, then returned to Virginia, where she had a litigation practice with McGuireWoods LLP in Richmond for five years.
She succeeds Harry M. Hirsch in the deputy counsel position. Hirsch retired in June after 27 years with the agency.
I worked with Harry on a number of matters involving attorneys admitted in both Virginia and D.C. as well as in the National Organization of Bar Counsel. A wonderful fellow.
Best wishes for a long and happy life after Bar Counsel. (Mike Frisch)
