When you or a family member is diagnosed with mesothelioma, everything changes. We understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for you and your family.

In the state of Virginia alone, our mesothelioma lawyers have recovered over $55 million on behalf of asbestos-related disease victims.

Please note that recovery results vary per client. The recovery amounts in each case reflect the specific facts of that case. Further, recovery amounts in past cases are not a guarantee of future results.

You should know that Virginia has a unique set of laws that could impact your ability to file a claim. For example, Virginia has statute of limitation laws that restrict the time frame in which mesothelioma patients and family members can file a lawsuit.

Our Virginia mesothelioma lawyers are prepared to help you understand this process and guide you through the legal system. We have 40 attorneys in our mesothelioma practice who solely focus on helping people like you. Each attorney operates within a small legal team comprised of experienced legal staff. Team members include a senior attorney, several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators. This structure ensures you will receive personalized attention while your case works its way through this complex legal process.

If you’d like to talk to a Virginia mesothelioma lawyer about a potential case, we are available to meet with you in your home or a location of your choosing.


Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Virginia is important because it means we are familiar with Virginia job sites where asbestos exposure occurred. Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.

Our mesothelioma lawyers have helped past Virginia clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.


Over the years, a number of work sites in Virginia have been linked to asbestos. Please note this is not a complete list, and it does not necessarily reflect current conditions.
