The Middleburg Town Council has selected Martin R. Crim to serve as the new town attorney.
A shareholder in the firm of Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C., Crim also serves as the town attorney for Culpeper, Haymarket and Occoquan, as well as the city attorney for Manassas.
In his 25 years of practice, Crim specialized in municipal law and is a recognized expert in the fields of sign regulation and zoning proffers. Among his most recent accolades was his receipt of the Special Project Award for his work on behalf of the Local Government Attorneys of Virginia Association in drafting a model sign ordinance.
He began his duties as Middleburg’s town attorney Feb. 9. He replaces Angela Plowman, who served in the post for almost five years.
“Mr. Crim is familiar with and understands how things are done in Middleburg” Mayor Betsy Davis said. “We believe he, as well as the other members of his firm, will serve the Town well.”
