Dedicated legal support for traffic accident victims in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, as well as the surrounding cities and counties, from Richmond to Winchester.

In recent years, Virginia has averaged more than 122,000 reported traffic accidents annually. When accidents result in serious injuries or death, victims and their families may be entitled to compensation. Committed to helping them recover damages, my firm offers skilled legal representation in the following practice areas:


  • Auto and trucking accidents — Auto accidents and trucking accidents can be devastating, keeping you away from work, perhaps permanently, and leading to a mountain of medical bills. I will be your most ardent advocate and won’t back down in the face of tough opposition.
  • Personal injury and wrongful death — If a car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle accident caused you or your loved one to suffer a serious personal injury, such as a traumatic brain injury, or resulted in a family member’s wrongful death, let me fight for your economic recovery, so you can focus on healing.
  • Drunk driving accidents — Drunk driving accidents only happen when people break the law. If a drunk driver injured you, they should be held accountable. Let me seek the justice you deserve.

Some cases require litigation, while others can be settled out of court. Drawing on my extensive background in state and federal courts in Virginia, and strong negotiation skills, I am prepared to take whatever steps are necessary to obtain a favorable verdict or settlement.
