Whether your firm is stretched too thin or you simply do not have the expertise to take on catastrophic plaintiff cases, choosing a co-counsel partner can greatly strengthen your ability effectively litigate such cases. The Virginia State Bar even encourages partnering with co-counsel for matters outside of a lawyer’s comfort zone.
The Decision to Retain Co-Counsel
The decision to retain another firm to assist with your serious injury cases can be the best and easiest decision you will make. Complex facts, challenging legal issues, and the responsibility of representing a catastrophically injured client require focus, determination, and resources. The time commitment required by such cases can be difficult to manage, especially as you and your staff continue to serve other clients. These cases are time-consuming and can take years to resolve.
When you bring on a co-counsel partner, you are choosing a firm to help you share the demands of your case, both financial and intellectual.
Partnering with Allen & Allen
With more than 100 years of experience and over 30 attorneys focused on personal injury law, Allen & Allen handles cases in Virginia and nationwide. Over our long history, many personal injury attorneys outside of our firm have become our partners. These attorneys recognized a need. Some were looking for more resources to help sustain a long and costly battle on behalf of their client in a medical malpractice case. Others were looking for an expert litigator to assist in the courtroom with the rigors of a trial. And some contacted us with the intention of referring to us the big case that was taking them away from their other clients – clients who were depending on them.
At Allen & Allen, we are willing to offer the support you need to ensure the best possible outcome for your client.
The attorneys at Allen & Allen represent more than 600 years of combined experience in personal injury law. And, our expertise in personal injury law stretches beyond the courtroom. Many of our attorneys are recognized leaders in various legal associations and groups, including the American Association for Justice, the Southern Trial Lawyers Association, and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. Our attorneys have written books on insurance law and medical malpractice that are considered the gold standard for judges and other attorneys. Allen & Allen attorneys also teach what they know in law school classrooms and at national seminars. Our legacy of legislative advocacy, which dates back to our founder, allows our attorneys to participate in shaping the laws that protect our clients today.
In 1910, George E. Allen founded a law firm built on his personal values of service, trust, family, community, and compassion. More than 100 years later, those values remain at the core of who we are. Our commitment to advocacy on behalf of those wrongfully injured is absolute.
Allen & Allen attorneys have secured more than $1 billion on behalf of our clients. Our attorneys have achieved record-setting verdicts and settlements in almost every area of personal injury law. These include the largest medical malpractice verdict in Virginia state court history, the largest motor vehicle crash settlement in Virginia history, and a $42 million product liability settlement.
