Giles G. Perkins, a 1992 graduate of the W&L School of Law and Executive Committee president in the 1991-92 academic year, is a candidate for attorney general in Alabama this year.
To launch his campaign earlier this month, Giles joined marchers on the 51-mile walk between Selma and Montgomery to recreate the voting rights march from 45 years earlier. The Montgomery Advertiser wrote about Giles’ candidacy and his walk earlier this month. He’s one of three Democrats in the race.
Giles was previously executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party and was also with the Birmingham office of the Miller Hamilton law firm. Currently, he operates his own law firm and, according to the story in the Advertiser, works predominantly in corporate law.
