Charlottesville Personal Injury Attorneys | Allen & Allen

Charlottesville Personal Injury Lawyers

Charlottesville personal injury law firm

The Allen Law Firm was founded by George E. Allen in 1910 in Lunenburg County. George moved his practice to Richmond in 1931, expanded his firm with the addition of his sons as partners, and there Allen & Allen quickly earned a reputation not only as a group of respected lawyers, but as a pillar of the community. This reputation accompanied the firm when it grew to more conveniently serve the Charlottesville area with the opening of an office there in 2008.

Allen & Allen is a family firm built on compassionate service, and we are committed to protecting our clients throughout your recovery and will fight for your fair treatment and compensation. Over our firm’s 100-year history, we have handled many complex and devastating claims with victims sustaining injuries ranging from tractor-trailer accidents to spinal cord or traumatic brain injury. The Charlottesville attorneys at Allen & Allen are equipped with the experience to achieve the most favorable settlement possible for your claim.

Our Charlottesville attorneys are known for aggressive advocacy and their compassionate approach to personal injury law. We can help you:

  • Determine what time limits may pertain to your claim.
