Hampton City Attorney named an Influential Woman of Virginia

Hampton’s City Attorney Cynthia Hudson has been chosen as one of the “Influential Women of Virginia” by Virginia Lawyers Media. She is the only honoree selected from Hampton.

The recognition program, now in its 4th year, recognizes the outstanding efforts of women in Virginia in all fields, including law, business, health care, education and the arts. The honors are given to individuals who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities and society at large.

Hudson became city attorney in January 2006, after serving as the city’s deputy city attorney for 10 years. Before joining the city in 1996, she spent eight years as a member of the Labor and Employment Law Litigation section at the law firm of McGuireWoods, LLP in Richmond.

Hudson received a Bachelor of Science degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and a law degree from the College of Williams and Mary, where she was a John Marshall fellow. She is currently teaching state and local government law as an adjunct faculty member at William and Mary’s Marshall-Wythe School of Law.

The honorees will be celebrated at a gala luncheon on Thursday, May 10 at the Richmond Marriott in downtown Richmond.

Virginia Lawyers Media, the publisher of Virginia Lawyers Weekly and Virginia Medical Law Report, is a unit of The Dolan Company, a provider of business information and professional services to legal, financial and real estate sectors.
