I went to this law firm cold. I was just searching for an employment attorney online and this practice came up in the search. My job was on the line so I was very apprehensive about choosing an attorney blindly. Once I went to visit the firm my apprehension melted away. All staff was very welcoming and professional. The attorneys Reid and Joshua were very clear about what I was up against and what the strategy would be. They kept me in the loop at all times. Not only did I learn some things about the law but they also taught me life lessons. If I ever needed an attorney again I would definitely hire them again. They are a "dream team".

Simply the best employment lawyers in SE Virginia! They specialize in helping the employee when they are stuck or have been put in situations -- FMLA violations, force-quits, harassment -- where they feel powerless. Assisted greatly when I needed representation at a fact-finding hearing with the unemployment agency after being treated poorly by a former employer. I've used them twice and attorneys Reid Ervin and Joshua Jewett are the epitome of professionalism, deep knowledge and tenacity. They put you immediately at ease with their demeanor and their ability to relax the client. No one wants to go to an employment lawyer, but if you feel wronged they are the first guys to call. Highly recommended.

When I went to Mr. Ervin, I was facing difficulties in my first “grown up” job and didn’t know how to handle the situation and didn’t really have anyone to turn to. Mr. Ervin took my case on and he (and his team) were there every step of the way. When they took my case on, it was the first time in months that I felt safe and confident in what I was doing. When they tried to intimidate me, he was right there and stood his ground. He also helped take all of that off of my shoulders and dealt with everything so I didn’t have to.
Mr. Ervin helped me move on from a bad situation that would have been 10x worse without him and his team. Because of him, I was able to recover (financially and mentally) and rebuild my life. He’s a straight shooter, not intimidated by anyone, and the kind of guy that you want in your corner. His team (Josh and Melinda) were also always just an email away if I needed anything.
If you’re having issues at work and need someone on your side, the best thing you could do for yourself is give Mr. Ervin a call.
