Delivering Unprecedented Financial Results and Peace of Mind to People Seeking Compensation for Serious Personal Injury or Wrongful Death.
We have successfully resolved – via settlement or trial – numerous cases involving traumatic injuries and death.
This has included serious catastrophic injuries and death due to unsafe premises, school violence, gun violence, sexual assault, Title IX violations, fraternity hazing and violence, and other tragedies caused by the negligence of others – including the historic, complex settlement on behalf of 20 families who suffered the loss of a loved one or sustained traumatic gunshot injuries as a result of the April 2007 Massacre at Virginia Tech.
Tough on Substance. Smooth on Style.
As to our abilities, John McCammon, the Founder of The McCammon Group and mediator of the settlement said, “You have served your clients so well and at the same time distinguished yourselves as first class, effective, efficient, practical and collaborative attorneys who know how to deal with the big issues. While tough on substance, you were smooth on style. That is a difficult combination to pull off.”
If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury or wrongful death, our team of experienced and talented attorneys can help you take steps toward seeking the justice you deserve.
