Vaden Warren has been practicing personal injury law in Virginia since 1997 and has extensive experience handling a variety of personal injury cases.  A 1993 graduate of the University of Virginia, he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in History.  After working for the Virginia House of Delegates, Vaden obtained his law degree from the T. C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond in 1997.  While in law school he was a member of the Moot Court Board.

Vaden is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and has tried cases in many different counties and cities in Virginia.  His bar associations include: the Virginia Bar Association, the Charlottesville Albemarle Bar Association and the Charlottesville Inns of Court.  

Vaden is passionate about his career in personal injury law and remains active in Virginia's largest organization of trial attorneys, The Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.  He is a former chairman of the Young Trial Lawyer's Section and has chaired many other committees for the organization.  He is also a member of the Association of American Justice, devoted to protecting the rights of individuals as well as the right to trial by jury. 

Vaden has written a number of articles that have appeared in statewide attorney publications including: "Texas Hold'em and the Art of the Connective Tissue Case" published in Virginia Lawyer by the Virginia State Bar and "Driving the Personal Injury Case" published in The Journal by the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.  He has presented on Trial Exhibits and moderated a presentation on 10 Important Virginia Supreme Court Cases for Personal Injury Attorneys at multiple Virginia Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars.

Vaden Warren has tried over 35 personal injury cases to verdict and was featured in Virginia Lawyers Weekly as an "Up & Coming Attorney."  He opened and ran a branch office for one of Virginia's largest Personal Injury firms from 2000-2003 and went to be a founding partner of Whitehead Warren PLC.  To better serve his clients from all over the state and specifically the Charlottesville area, he founded the Warren Firm PLLC in 2009.

Vaden truly cares for those who have been injured.  Among his pro-bono work, he notably represented the family of a victim of the September 11th terrorist bombings.  He assisted the family in receiving an over $1.1 million award from the Victim's Compensation Fund of the Department of Justice.

When he is not working for his clients, Vaden enjoys spending time with his wife and two children and always enjoys a leisurely game of golf or tennis.  He is a big fan of University of Virginia athletics and attends most Cavalier football games.

Excellent, Honest, Trustworthy Attorney!!!!!!!
If it wasn't for Mr. Warren's help I would have only received $600 from insurance company. Because of his excellent work, keeping me informed and being honest I received more than he told me I would. I highly recommend his services. All lawyers need to be like this guy!

Highly recommend Vaden Warren - a tremendous person and lawyer!
Our son suffered a traumatic injury and realizing that we might have a case, we consulted with Vaden to discuss options. From that first phone call we knew we were in very good hands. Vaden guided us through the process with honesty, respect, and professionalism. Although the ordeal of a lawsuit in never pleasant, Vaden provided comfort through his compassion and open lines of communication. In the end, our expectations were met as we were able to secure a fair settlement. We couldn’t have asked for better representation and highly recommend the Warren Firm.

Highly recommend Vaden Warren
Vaden Warren handled my case with the utmost priority. I was kept well informed and Mr. Warren always worked to meet my individual goals. I would highly recommend Vaden Warren to anyone in need of his services. I do not believe my own personal injury case could have been in better hands.

The Very Bet!
I was a slip & Fall Client. When others didn't want to talk to me, Mr. Warren did. I have nothing but high praise for an Attorney with compassion, understanding and thoughtfulness. If I ever have another Personal Injury, I most certainly would use Mr. Warren again.

Want Justice?
At the age of 18 I was in a devestating car accident as a result of someone elses negligence. In such a position I needed an attorney snd I hit the jackpot. While my family was going through a very traumatic time in our lives, and our future was so uncertain Vaden Warren was always there, sometimes going out of his way to help us. He always had time for us, often making us feel as if we were his only clients. While in the process becoming a great friend. Vaden is a dedicated and caring attorney and it is an honor to recommend him to anyone in need of a great attorney. I always do and always will. Amber Winters Dove Hurley 2010
