Richmond Magazine rated me one of the BEST Workers Compensation Lawyers in Central Virginia. I worked as a Legal Aid lawyer for 17 years. I developed expertise in Virginia Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability. I began to lecture on these areas to bar groups and client groups. I then decided to go into private practice focusing on representing injured and disabled workers. From 2003 to 2015, Martindale-Hubbell awarded me its highest rating of AV Preeminent for legal excellence and ethics based on a vote of my peers. AVVO has awarded me its highest superb rating from 2010 to 2015.
