James City County has hired a new Assistant County Attorney.
Lola Rodriguez Perkins started her new position on May 9, replacing Angela King. She will primarily support county departments, including Human Resources, Engineering and Resource Protection (including the Wetlands/Chesapeake Bay Board), public safety and Purchasing.
Perkins comes to James City County from Spotsylvania County, where she worked as Assistant County Attorney for four years. She has also worked as Assistant County Attorney for Chesterfield County, a law clerk for the Hanover County Circuit Court and as a Senior Policy Analyst for the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
Perkins is an alumnus of The College of William and Mary, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in 1997. She earned her law degree at Pennsylvania State University.
“Lola’s experience and knowledge of local government and the Commonwealth of Virginia will be a valuable asset to county departments, the Board of Supervisors and the county overall,” said Leo Rogers, attorney for James City County. “We’re extremely pleased that she chose to come back to this area.”
Perkins currently resides in Richmond with her husband, also a William and Mary graduate. They hope to relocate to the area soon.
