Charlottesville attorney Yvonne T. Griffin is a trial lawyer who practices only law for injured persons. She is the only local female attorney in Charlottesville and Albemarle County concentrating in car, truck and motorcycle crash cases. Although she has been practicing law since 1988, for the past 20 years she has done nothing but injury law. During that time, she has handled thousands of personal injury cases. She handles car accidents and other types of vehicle wrecks, bodily injury, wrongful death, animal bites and medical malpractice.
