Case Results

We invite you to browse some of our case results to learn more about our past successes and how we have helped people in situations similar to yours.

Keep in mind, however, that each case is fact specific and that these results do not necessarily indicate the likely recovery in cases involving different facts. 

We were able to attain these results because our law firm is small and not a “TV law firm.” This give us, and our clients, the benefit of being able to give each case careful attention, sifting the facts, often including large volumes of documents, to find a “smoking gun” or a legal theory justifying a substantial award to compensate for a tragic loss. 

And so if you or a family member or a friend has suffered a substantial loss due to the fault of another person, contact us at (804) 485-2555 or by filling out a contact form. We get great satisfaction from helping others.
