Attorney Richard Langhorne was sworn in Tuesday as the new commissioner of accounts for Mathews County. He replaces Dawne Alexander, who recently retired.
A Norfolk native, Langhorne has practiced general law since 1981, focusing primarily on bankruptcy, estate planning and criminal law.
In 1995, he opened a part-time practice in Gloucester, and then became full-time in 2007 when he permanently moved to his longtime weekend home in Mathews.
Langhorne said he looks forward to continuing the excellent service provided by his predecessor. According to the Code of Virginia, commissioners of accounts are tasked with “supervision of all fiduciaries admitted to qualify in the court or before the clerk of the circuit court and shall make all ex parte settlements of the fiduciaries’ accounts.”
