You can tell a law firm has reached a level of expertise when fellow attorneys seek their advice in a particular area of law. That’s why 40 plaintiff and insurance defense lawyers recently attended a seminar taught by the lawyers at Shapiro & Appleton& Duffan. The topic was how to handle personal injury cases and lawsuits.

Our firm was proud to teach this event, which was conducted through the Norfolk & Portsmouth Virginia (VA) Bar Association.  Our attorneys focus exclusively on personal injury law and we possess over 100 years of combined legal experience.

We shared some of the best practices we’ve developed over the years. We also covered specific topics such as the basics of Virginia automobile insurance, special discovery issues related to personal injury cases, and how to maximize the client’s recovery.
