Jason Konvicka

A tireless advocate, Jason Konvicka has built a distinguished career protecting personal injury victims for more than 25 years. His natural instincts as a trial lawyer and his determination to achieve justice for the injured have enabled him to achieve numerous record-setting jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients.

Jason has had record recoveries in the areas of tractor trailer crashers, medical malpractice, and bus accidents. Jason’s practice also includes complex injury cases involving tractor-trailer crashes, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, defective products, dangerous premises, drunk driving wrecks, and wrongful death. He also has experience with class actions and mass torts.

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 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 that year. In 2009, Jason obtained an $8 million jury verdict for a client who was severely injured in a bus accident — the largest personal injury verdict in the state of Virginia that year.

An accomplished writer and former law review editor, Jason has successfully argued before the Virginia Supreme Court and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. He is also admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.

Jason has a long list of accolades. In 2019, he was honored as a 2019 “Leader in the Law” by Virginia Lawyers Weekly, an honor given to those making important contributions to the legal community.

In 2018, Jason was named Best Lawyers’ 2018 Richmond Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs “Lawyer of the Year.” This honor is particularly significant as only one attorney from each practice area and metropolitan area can be named “Lawyer of the Year.”

In 2017, Jason was honored with induction to the exclusive International Academy of Trial Lawyers, a fellowship of elite attorneys representing both plaintiffs and defendants. He was recognized for his legal accomplishments and standards of honor and integrity. Membership in this group is limited to 500 attorneys worldwide.

Jason is also proud to be among the attorneys at Allen & Allen named to Best Lawyers in America, a publication considered by many to be the preeminent guide to legal excellence in the United States. He has also been added to the list of Best Lawyers for 2021. He’s been involved in the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association (VTLA) throughout his career. He has chaired numerous committees, serves on the board, and served as President of the association from 2019 – 2020.

Jason was born in Texas and raised in Arkansas. He now lives in Richmond with his wife Karen and their twin sons. He enjoys spending time with his children, traveling, running, and listening to live music. He also has an interest in the outdoors, food and wine.

Mae from Henrico

I want to thank my attorney Jason Konvicka for all of his patience, expertise, and professional handling of my case. He put me at ease about meeting with the other parties’ attorneys. Also, he was sensitive to the emotional and physical trauma I experienced as a result of the automobile crash. My husband and I so appreciate him working with us and reaching a settlement with the parties responsible for the wreck. I do not wish anyone else to have to go through a settlement. However, I will always recommend Jason and Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen to anyone needing legal services. Keep up the great work you are doing. Mae from Henrico
