Ask about our 25% fee in auto accident cases!
I am a personal injury lawyer in Fairfax, Virginia. The vast majority of my practice involves representing people who have been hurt in auto accidents against car insurance companies.
At one point, this was a practice area where you could hire just about any lawyer and get the same result. Now, you need someone who concentrates on auto accidents. The law is getting more complex every year - especially for people who have health insurance through the government or through large companies. The last thing that you want to do after settling your auto accident case is get a surprise bill from the Federal government or from a subrogation agent because you hired a generalist to handle your auto accident case.
Additionally, insurance companies now track which attorneys take cases to trial and which lawyers have a volume practice and just settle their client's cases. When you are looking for a lawyer - be sure to ask them when the last time they tried a case was.
You should hire a lawyer for your auto accident case who enjoys being in the Courtroom. I am one of those lawyers. I had the privelege of being selected as one of the Top 10 Attorneys in Virginia Under Age 40 by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys and as one of the top 40 trial lawyers in Virginia under 40. I have also been listed as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine - an award that recognizes the top 2.5% of attorney's under the age of 40.
When I am not in the office or trying cases, you can find me out running. I love being outside and pushing myself. I have competed in dozens of races from marathon distance up to 100 miles.
