Practice areas
  1. Medical malpractice
    40%
    Hospital malpractice has become the third leading cause of death in the United States after cancer and heart disease. Medical malpractice hugely impacts our communities and families.

  2. Personal injury
    20%
    Unlike many other types of trauma, catastrophic personal injuries cause permanent impairment, drastically altering your life. A brain or spinal cord injury, for example, can cause loss of motor function and/or personality changes.

  3. Wrongful death
    20%
    A wrongful death occurs when a person dies as a result of the negligence or misconduct of another person, company, or entity. It can result from medical negligence, auto crash, or other trauma, and the families need support and guidance.

  4. Birth injury
    10%
    Injuries to a baby can occur at any stage of pregnancy, even during labor and delivery or just after birth. While some of injuries cannot be prevented, many tragically happen due to avoidable medical errors.

  5. Car accident
    10%
    Many accidents on the Capital Beltway and throughout the Washington DC metropolitan area are the result of driver carelessness and recklessness, including speeding, drunk driving, texting and inattention.

When families in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. find themselves in need of a lawyer, Amy Griggs understands the importance of that decision. Amy Griggs has been representing families in medical malpractice, catastrophic personal injury, and serious car and trucking crash cases since 2007. Amy Griggs approaches each case with the goal of showing the clients all of their legal options to obtain the best possible result, guiding them through the legal process with compassion and understanding.

Before even graduating from law school, Amy Griggs was drawn to medical malpractice cases and began working as a law clerk in a medical malpractice defense firm. Amy Griggs then began the first four years of her career representing health care providers and hospitals in medical malpractice litigation. Amy Griggs realized her true passion was to put her trial skills to work benefiting families in their greatest time of need. She then shifted her practice to only representation of Plaintiffs.

Amy Griggs is an excellent attorney
Amy was a part of my legal team during a very emotionally difficult civil case. She had incredible bedside manner and was extremely knowledgeable about the laws in this area. I felt comfortable knowing that she had my back in negotiations and that she was going to uncover all the information necessary. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Amy Griggs is a terrible lawyer
Amy Griggs led me to believe she was taking my case for months then called to let me know she would not be taking the case, which left me little time to find another attorney. She was difficult to get in touch with and was very slow to return phone calls and emails.
