I'm not licensed to practice law in Virginia, so when I needed to know Virginia law, I've consulted Gerald Lutkenhaus. He's experienced and knowledgeable. I'll continue to consult with him because he always knows the law or quickly gets back to me with right answers.
Really helped me with my leg injury. I had called three other lawyers and they turned me down because I didnt report my accident right away.
Jerry was very compassionate, caring, and empathetic. He acted upon my case immediately and kept me informed at all times. If I had a question, I received a call back right away with an answer. He was always there for me every step of the way, until he WON my case. His entire staff were amazing! Jerry fought hard for me and won! Jerry was never in a rush with me as most attorneys are!
My occupation as a baker resulted in a severe Baker's Asthma, and I could barely breathe. Mr. Lutkenhaus was able to get a great settlement from the insurance company for me.
I had a back injury in Midlothian, Virginia that was appealed to the Virginia Ct of Appeals & he did a wonderful job resolving it when I thought all hope was gone.
I hurt my right shoulder in Sandston, Virginia an accident. Due to this injury, I overused my left shoulder and injured it also. Mr. Lutkenhaus got me 500 weeks of compensation and a settlement for $125,000.00 based on the loss of both my shoulders. I was very pleased with the way he and his staff handled my case. I think he does a pretty good job.
I was unable to work due to MS. I chose him based on his expertise in Disability cases. We had bad luck and got the judge who denies almost all cases, so we lost the first time. But he did not give up; he appealed the case and got us a new hearing. My case started in 2009, but he fought this judge every step of the way for 4 years to win. He has that winning heart and never gives up. He and his staff were very professional and showed me much kindness.
I injured my arm at my work place and I could not work anymore at that job. I ended up doing security guard work. I contacted Mr. Lutkenhaus and he got me on workers compensation and eventually got me a settlement.. I was lucky I contacted him.
I had fallen from a scaffold in Caroline County, Virginia and injured my head and wrist. My Workers' Compensation case was denied because I had recently smoked marijuana. Mr. Lutkenhaus proved the marijuana had nothing to do with my fall and serious injury. His paralegal Rose kept me informed and answered all my questions. She was a delight.
I retained Mr. Lutkenhaus to get my disability. As a college customer service rep, I attempted to continue working even though I had suffered neck problems that resulted in multiple cervical operations. Finally, I was unable to work and filed for disability. When I was denied, I went to Mr. Lutkenhaus because I was told he was one of the best disability lawyers in Richmond. He and his staff were very patient with me because I did not understand the Social Security Disability process. They helped me win my hearing which included 2 years of back benefits. They do great work in disability cases, so I will be referring anyone who needs a top-notch disability lawyer to Mr. Lutkenhaus
