The 40th anniversary of the Local Government Attorneys of Virginia was held in Roanoke last week. Former Loudoun Country Attorney Steve Robin was one of the original 13 founders to be honored.
LeesburgToday reported that Robin was the first president of the organization. Its purpose was to create a “forum for the exchange of research and experience among the legal offices of the countries, cities and towns in the commonwealth.”
“Loudoun didn’t even have the office of country attorney when I came here in 1973,” Robin said. “I was hired as an assistant commonwealth attorney to help the then-Commonwealth Attorney Don Devine Sr., advise the county’s boards and departments.”
After 40 years of service, the Local Government Attorneys Association consists of 800 attorneys representing more than 300 local government bodies in Virginia.
