Client Testimonial: "I was in a head-on collision on July 15, 2012 and I needed money to help with my recovery. I looked on the Internet trying to find lawyers and I met a lot of lawyers who I didn't like and who really didn't really care about whether I was okay or not. It seemed as if they were just looking to make a quick buck. But then I called this firm and spoke to Rick. He's a great guy. He actually seemed to care, honestly care, about my well-being, and not just about the money. I was thrilled that I went to this law firm to help me out with my case." Client Testimonial: "I was represented by Randy Appleton. He handled my car accident case professionally and kept me informed throughout the process. I appreciate the fact that Randy explained everything and if I ever had a question, he had the answer. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and would definitely refer friends and family to Randy's firm."

    Eric was an acquaintance through a mutual friend, but never had the opportunity to work with him in his professional setting. My wife was in a car accident late 2016, and Eric reached out to see if we needed his support with anything. Honestly, my wife and I would have never considered speaking with an attorney had Eric not reached out. This removed all of the stress of dealing with the insurance companies, and helped us considerably in terms of ensuring my wife was comfortable during recovery.

    “Mr. Washburn is an EXCELLENT attorney. On the recommendation of a friend, I called Eric in a time of need. Eric effectively communicated my options and the legal process that I was facing. He provided me with the pros/cons of each option that I had and outlined the other side’s case. Eric was always prepared and was never caught off guard during the process. He commanded a presence in the court room and with the other side. It was great to have him in my corner looking out for me and my family.

    Mr. Washburn was always available to me to address any questions or concerns I had about my personal injury matter. He would return phone calls promptly and, one time, he personally brought me the documents to sign at my work when I had an emergency come up at my office. This type of personal attention to clients is unheard of with other attorneys. Mr. Washburn was very knowledgeable and professional in representing my best interests. I highly recommend Mr. Washburn in any personal injury matter

    Rick did a fantastic job handling my case. I suffered a slip and fall injury in Virginia and had another attorney working on my case for over a year. That attorney told me that I did not have a case since the statute of limitations ran out. Rick proved him wrong. In no time, he got my case settled and funds were in my bank account. I have told everyone I know about his law firm and will continue to spread the word.

    My father worked for a railroad company for over 36 years. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer and died three months later. My friend recommended Rick Shapiro and the law firm of Shapiro, Cooper, Lewis & Appleton to handle this case. From the beginning, we knew we had the right team fighting for us. Rick never gave up, worked tirelessly on our behalf against a railroad company that could not care less about my dad's death. Rick was able to get a very good settlement for my mother.

  • When you are hurt in a Virginia car accident as a pedestrian, making a claim for your personal injuries makes sense. But what happens if the driver fled the scene of the accident? Because the driver’s identity is unknown, the injured party may not be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. […]
