Nor-fok, Naw-fok, Nawfolk – no matter how you pronounce it, the experience of working and living in this vibrant community is always enjoyable with entertainment and culture, delicious cuisine and 144 miles of shoreline to expolore.

Our team of Norfolk, Virginia personal injury attorneys have successfully resolved numerous car accident and major personal injury lawsuits in and around Norfolk for more than four decades. We’ve handled cases in state courts in Norfolk and in the federal court located in downtown Norfolk (i.e. the U.S. Federal Court for the Eastern District of Virginia). In fact, it was in that federal court where Rick Shapiro, along with co-counsel, obtained a $2.5 million jury verdict for a man who was killed when his lawnmower suddenly exploded burning him alive (learn more about the tragic case here).

We hope that, whether you are a visitor, military member stationed in the city, or a resident like members of our firm, you will never have to experience suffering an injury in a serious accident.  However, if you are injured, or lose a loved one in an accident, take some level of comfort in knowing that our firm can handle your Norfolk, Virginia personal injury case.  Until then, as residents of this wonderful community our VA car accident attorneys would like to share a little bit about our hometown.

Norfolk Has  a Strong Military Presence

Naval Station Norfolk is the world’s largest naval station, easily accessed by Interstate 564 via Interstate 64.  The naval base currently supports 75 ships and 134 aircraft alongside 14 piers and 11 aircraft hangars. Visitors will have an opportunity to see aircraft carriers, destroyers, frigates, amphibious assault ships and one of the busiest airfields in the country.

Our team of Norfolk personal injury attorneys take pride in representing members of the military in serious accidents. It can be overwhelming to try and juggle recuperating from a major accident and your responsibilties with the military. For example, we’ve represented servicemembers who got hurt in an auto accident and had to ship out overseas the following week. Check out this video about our Norfolk personal injury law firm’s experience in helping injured servicemembers:
