Summary

I am an accomplished and experienced trial attorney in the Richmond, Va. office of the Allen Law Firm. I have a solid track record in a variety of personal injury matters including multi-million dollar awards in cases involving wrongful death, tractor-trailer accidents, traumatic brain injury and medical malpractice. Since 2000, I have represented clients in a wide array of federal and state court cases consistently winning favorable outcomes for my clients at the negotiation table as well as the courtroom. Highlights of my achievements include a $4.5 million award in a tractor-trailer collision case, a $1.6 million award in a medical malpractice case involving the failure to diagnose renal cell carcinoma, and a $900,000 recovery in a wrongful death case involving a 15-passenger van rollover crash. My analytical approach enables me to be successful at grasping the complex medical and legal issues that my cases routinely involve. My approachable and confident nature aids me in effectively presenting complex concepts to judges and juries in order to help them understand what my clients have experienced. I have an "AV" rating (the highest available) from the Martindale-Hubbell attorney listing service and was selected as one of the Top 5% of Virginia attorneys by Virginia Super Lawyers in the area of Plaintiff's Personal Injury Practice.
