Jason W. Konvicka

A tireless advocate, Jason has built a distinguished career representing personal injury victims for more than 20 years.

Best Lawyers In America 2017: Jason W. Konvicka As a founding member of the firm's Medical Malpractice division, Jason has been instrumental in its success both in and out of the courtroom.  Jason's keen interest in complex medical and technical issues and his natural instincts as a trial lawyer have enabled him to achieve numerous record-setting jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. 

In 2016, Jason and partner Chris Guedri obtained a $42 million settlement for three men who were seriously burned and the family of one man who was killed as a result of a workplace explosion. This recovery was the largest personal injury settlement in Virginia during 2016. In 2014, Jason obtained a $22 million settlement on behalf of a boy who suffered paralysis and brain injuries in a crash with a dump truck.  This recovery is the largest personal injury settlement in Virginia history involving a vehicular accident according to Virginia Lawyers Weekly. In 2013, Jason obtained a $25 million jury verdict for a client who was misdiagnosed for a heart condition. This verdict is the largest medical malpractice verdict in Virginia state court history. In 2009, Jason obtained an $8 million jury verdict for a client who was severely injured in a bus accident case - the largest personal injury verdict in the state of Virginia for that year. 

Jason's practice also includes complex injury cases involving wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, hypoxic brain injury, bus accidents, spinal cord injury, complex regional pain syndrome, tractor trailer accidents, drowning, defective products, dangerous premises, building and safety code violations, and drunk driving accidents.  Jason also has experience with class actions and mass torts and manages the firm's representation of victims of defective drugs and medical devices. 

A former law review Executive Editor, Jason is a skilled and persuasive writer.  He has authored numerous appellate briefs on behalf of his clients in both state and federal courts, including the Supreme Court of the United States. In addition, Jason has successfully argued before the Virginia Supreme Court and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
