VLW names ‘Go To Lawyers’ for medical malpractice

Virginia Lawyers Weekly is pleased to announce the “Go To Lawyers” for medical malpractice law for both plaintiffs’ and defense side.

Now in its second year, the “Go To Lawyers” program recognizes leading lawyers in a particular field of law. Earlier this year, we honored lawyers who practice elder law, workers compensation law and employment law.

A “Go To Lawyer” is:

  • A lawyer who is an expert in his or her field, well-versed in the nuances of the case law, statutes and regulations clients will encounter.
  • A lawyer who is experienced and enjoys a record of success, with many cases and/or transactions that give testimony to the quality advice he or she can provide.
  • A lawyer to whom other lawyers make referrals because of his or her expertise and accomplishments.
  • A lawyer who can think creatively and identify all options for a client.
  • A lawyer you would name when a friend from another state calls and says she has a client who needs some legal help in a given part of our state.

Please join us in congratulating these outstanding lawyers. To see who was named, turn to page 15.
