Our focus on becoming the very best Virginia personal injury lawyers possible is one of the reasons we were able to secure a record-setting jury verdict in the Commonwealth of Virginia. In October of 2000, our firm, with the assistance of co-counsel, obtained a record verdict for a brain injured victim in Virginia (60 million dollars, including interest). In January of 2012, the firm obtained a 21 Million Dollar structured settlement for a brain injured child who sustained her injury in a tractor trailer accident.
