Business and Corporate Law

We pride ourselves on meeting the needs of businesses large and small and on partnering with them as they grow.  From assisting with entity creation to providing ongoing compliance counsel, we work with clients at every stage.  We learn our clients’ industries and leverage that knowledge to turn challenges into opportunities.

We also understand the demand among businesses for cost-efficient and cost-effective legal services.  Our fractional general counsel and flat-fee offerings provide the creativity and predictability that clients demand in today’s rapidly changing landscape.


Employment Law

Employers are subject to a diverse and ever-evolving array of state and federal employment statutes and regulations, and ensuring compliance can be a stressful, expensive proposition, particularly for smaller entities.

We regularly counsel businesses on their obligations under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act among others.  We work with clients across multiple industries to provide effective employee handbooks and ongoing training, with the goal of maximizing compliance and stability and minimizing disruptions and risk.  With our monthly flat-fee approach, we encourage human resources staff to call us rather than to make a decision based on uncertainties.


Litigation and Local Counsel

With over twenty years of combined litigation experience in state and federal courts across Virginia, we represent businesses and individuals in a variety of disputes ranging from contractual claims to employment disputes to personal injury actions.  We work with clients to identify up front their goals in any litigation, and we provide strategic, cost-effective representation focused on achieving those preferred outcomes.

We also serve as local counsel in courts throughout Southern Virginia, advising clients on local rules and expectations and taking the lead on a variety of motions.  We will work with primary counsel to examine clients’ needs and determine how best we can assist in each matter.


Administrative Law

If you do business or interact with government, you likely confront an array of statutes and regulations that can be daunting.  We understand how government operates. 

Whether you seek to do business with government, are regulated by a board or agency, or simply wish to understand how key decisions are made, we can serve as your partner in navigating state and local government.


Traffic

If you received a traffic citation while traveling in our region, you may have options, such as attending a driver-improvement clinic or obtaining a vehicle calibration, other than pre-paying the ticket.  We will advise you of those options and stand ready to provide our clients with an aggressive defense in the courtroom. 

We represent clients charged with traffic violations in Danville, Martinsville, Pittsylvania County, Henry County, Halifax County, and Charlotte County.
