MICHELE S. LEWANE
A graduate of the University of Virginia and the University of Richmond, T.C. Williams School of Law, Michele Lewane has been representing injured workers against insurance companies since 1990.

In 2008, after over eighteen years in business as a partner of the law firm of Hubard, Samuels, and Lewane, P.C., Attorney Michele S. Lewane, Esquire left the firm to start a new practice, Injured Workers' Law Firm, with its focus on the legal representation of injured Virginia workers.

"The most important aspect of my job is to inform my clients of their rights and responsibilities. I handle the full range of assistance needed for my injured clients - from contested death cases to getting a small prescription paid."

The Injured Workers' Law Firm represents clients throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Injured Workers' Law Firm is located at 7826 Shrader Road, Richmond, Virginia 23294, in the office complex of Shrader Commons, located next to Advanced Orthopedic Clinic.

Lewane has published a survival guide for anyone who is hurt on the job in Virginia: The Ultimate Guide to Workers' Compensation in Virginia: Everything You Need to Know if You Get Hurt on the Job. This comprehensive legal book explains the laws related to worker's compensation in easy-to-understand language and guides readers through how to deal with doctors, nurse case managers, and vocational rehabilitation counselors.

Anyone in the unfortunate position of dealing with a work-related injury, or that of a loved one, could benefit from the wealth of knowledge in these pages. Additionally, it's a helpful for any Virginia employee to understand worker's compensation laws before an injury occurs.

Ms. Lewane has lectured and written about various areas of the law, including Workers' Compensation seminars for other lawyers.

    Michele was very helpful to me while handling my worker's compensation case. If I had questions I would email her paralegal Stephanie and she would run them by Michele and then get back to me with in a day or two with my answers that would put my mind at ease about what was going on. I would recommend her highly to any friend or family member. With her experience in workers compensation cases she won me a settlement for which I am grateful for.
