I worked with Claire for several years on worker's compensation defense cases. She is competent, aggressive, knowledgeable and accessible. I can always count on a timely and thorough response.

I have always found Claire to be a wonderful attorney to work with. She provides a detailed assessment of the case, our strenghs and weaknesses if we choose to litigate the file, and our chances of success at the Workers' Compensation Commission. She provides an agressive defense of the client and TPA on every case we have worked on together. She has also provided great assistance where settlement has been the best option to pursue, in the negotiation phase, as well as navigating the complexities where a Medicare Set Aside is involved, or a structured settlement considered, or both.

Claire has done work for our office for years and continues to take on new clients and expand her practice through our clients. Once we get a new client, if they have work in the Virginia area, Claire is the one that is usually recommended for all of their work colmp legal concerns. She is very thorough, extremely on top of things from all aspects and is very dependable. I recommend her to ne wclients on a consistent basis.
