Petersburg Personal Injury Lawyers

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

The Allen Law Firm was founded by George E. Allen in 1910 in Lunenburg County. George moved his practice to Richmond in 1931 and expanded his firm with the addition of his sons as partners. In Richmond, Allen, Allen, 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 Petersburg area with the opening of an office in the Old Town Historic District in 1988.

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

  • Understand the rights you have with regard to the negligent party’s insurance company.
  • Pursue uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and medical payments coverage from your own insurance company if applicable.
  • Obtain fair compensation through negotiation.
  • Collect the evidence you may need in order to prove your case.
