Two Woods Rogers attorneys have been named to leadership roles in key statewide legal professional organizations.

Elizabeth Guilbert Perrow, a principal with the firm, is the new president of the Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys (VADA). She is the second-youngest president of that organization and only the second woman to lead the statewide bar association for defense attorneys. Perrow also is the third Woods Rogers attorney to serve as president of the organization.

Erin Ashwell, a Woods Rogers associate, has been named president of the Roanoke chapter of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association, which assists women attorneys in developing their professional practice and achieving their potential.

“These positions reflect the initiative and talent of two of our brightest attorneys and the respect Woods Rogers has attained across Virginia for leadership in our field,” said Tom Bagby, president of Woods Rogers. “Many prominent attorneys have led these organizations, particularly the VADA, a respected statewide organization. Elizabeth is an extraordinarily talented trial lawyer who’s had enormous success in multiple jury trials and will bring her skills and dedication to her service as president of VADA. And Erin’s leadership will help to elevate the legal profession among women. We’re proud of both of them for representing Woods Rogers.”

Perrow is a trial lawyer who practices primarily in the area of medical malpractice defense. She has extensive experience representing health care providers and has successfully defended physicians in a variety of specialties, nurses and hospitals. She is also trained in Collaborative Process, a unique manner for the resolution of divorces. She is a graduate of Lynchburg College and Oklahoma City University School of Law.
