“Allen & Allen is thrilled to have a record ten attorneys named to 2024’s  Best Lawyers in America – not to mention the three that were added to the Ones to Watch list. In addition to these accolades, two attorneys were named Lawyer of the Year!
Mic McConnell

Trial attorney and Shareholder Malcolm McConnell III was named Lawyer of the Year for his work helping plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases. Mic is one of the few attorneys in America who is board certified in medical malpractice law by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys. He has helped countless patients achieve comfort when they have been wrongfully injured by physicians and other professionals in the medical field. He has served as chair of the Medical Malpractice Legislative Subcommittee of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, and has triumphed over complex cases.
Chris Guedri

P. Christopher Guedri was named Lawyer of the Year for personal injury litigation. Guedri, who is an attorney of counsel, partnered with Shareholder Trent Kerns to make Virginia history in 2022. Together, they secured the latest single-plaintiff settlement in Virginia history, at $47.5 million. Guedri received the same distinction from Best Lawyers in America in 2014 and 2015. His ability to master complex technical, scientific, and medical information has made him a powerful advocate for the injured. His adversaries frequently offer premium settlements rather than engage him in a courtroom battle.

Please join us in congratulating our attorneys on their remarkable achievements!”
