VSB names deputy bar counsel

The Virginia State Bar has promoted Kathryn  Montgomery to the No. 2 position in its system for regulating lawyers suspected of violating legal ethics.

Montgomery succeeds Harry Hirsch, who retired last month after 27 years with the agency, as deputy bar counsel.

A native of Danville and a graduate of the University of Virginia and its law school, Montgomery joined the VSB as assistant bar counsel in 2003.

After graduating from law school, she had worked for a law firm in Phoenix and for five years in the Richmond office of McGuireWoods LLP, where she was a litigator who focused on toxic torts, products liability, professional liability, medical malpractice and workers’ compensation.

Her boss, VSB Counsel Ned Davis described Montgomery as “smart, tough and very personable.”
