We cannot legally state we are the best injury law firm in Virginia, but we can tell you that many of our lawyers have been selected for the highest honors in the practice of injury law. For example, our firm is recognized as a “Best Law Firm” for personal injury law by U.S. News & World Report (since 2010). Also, attorneys with our firm are recognized as Virginia “Super Lawyers” (since ’06). Only 5 percent of practicing lawyers achieve this honor.
In addition, attorneys with our firm possess the highest-available “AV” rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the best known and most prestigious lawyer rating service in the country. The “AV” rating means our attorneys are recognized as some of the best personal injury lawyers in Virginia, according to objective ratings by fellow practitioners and judges.
Below is a video featuring one of our “AV” rated attorneys:
In 2005, our injury law firm was the first plaintiff’s injury firm in the state of Virginia selected for membership in a prestigious international group of highly ethical law firms, called Primerus. Primerus carefully screens law firms and the Wall Street Journal reported that Primerus “wants to offer consumers a way to pick the good from the bad by establishing a sort of ‘Good Housekeeping’ seal of approval for attorneys.”
The firm’s main office is in Virginia Beach, Virginia, near the northeast North Carolina border, and we have satellite offices in Elizabeth City, NC, and Hampton, DC. Attorneys and staff with our firm reside in both North Carolina and Virginia, and our lawyers are licensed in VA, NC, SC, WV, DC and KY.
RECORD-SETTING JURY VERDICT:
In 2000, our law firm, along with co-counsel, obtained the largest verdict in Virginia’s history for an injured person. The initial award of $46 million was elevated to $60 million with interest accrued while the defendant appealed the initial confidential settlement. To learn more about this jury verdict, and other large, multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements our firm has obtained, check out this video:
