‘Go To Lawyers’ for medical malpractice law announced

Virginia Lawyers Weekly//November 7, 2022//

Listen to this article

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

Now in its third year, the “Go To Lawyers” program recognizes top lawyers in a particular practice area. Earlier this year, we celebrated “Virginia’s Go To Lawyers” for intellectual property, employment and business law. Practice areas for 2023’s “Virginia’s Go To Lawyers” will be announced soon.

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.

Honorees will be profiled in a special section in the Dec. 12 issue of Virginia Lawyers Weekly.

Please join us in congratulating these outstanding lawyers specializing in all aspects of medical malpractice law.
