Congratulations 2012 Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes

The personal injury law firm of Allen & Allen was founded on service and action. For over 100 years, Allen & Allen attorneys and staff have been inspired by those in the community who make Virginia such a great place to live and work. In 2012 we’re honored to again feature local heroes responsible for community initiatives and acts of kindness.

This May our firm received an overwhelming response from the community, with hundreds of nominations for impressive candidates from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Petersburg, Charlottesville.

After careful consideration, we’ve selected fifty 2012 local Heroes.

Here are the 50 winning 2012 Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes.
