Attorney
Sanzone & Baker LLP
Lynchburg

Education

Hampden-Sydney College
Wake Forest University School of Law

Best known for:

Civil litigation and workers’ compensation

Signature case:

Estate of Payman Biazakhari, wrongful death: product liability and workers’ compensation; cable tower repairman killed when cable grab failed.

Most satisfying:

The ability to provide direction and support for clients unable to manage and navigate legal issues.

Working with clients:

I like to work with clients to make decisions together and to make sure they are actively involved in the important aspects of their case.

Best career advice:

Work constantly to simplify the legal problem, no mater how complex.

Looking ahead:

“Expect” is challenging with the composition of the legislature, both historically and at present. VTLA legislature support, as well as the Inns of Court work, has led to meaningful developments over the last few years, and I hope to see continued cooperation between Claimant/Defense Bar on legislature going into 2021-2022.
