Record verdicts. Record settlements.

As one of Virginia’s oldest and most recognized personal injury law firms, Burnett & Williams provides expert assistance on serious injury cases involving someone else’s negligence. For over 25 years our lawyers and staff have served thousands of Virginia injury clients in need. We’ve established a strong reputation for attentive client care on every case, from small accident claims to multi-million dollar malpractice and wrongful death suits.

Our Approach

Every client’s loss is uniquely personal. At Burnett & Williams individual attention and legal excellence are the hallmarks of our representation. Maximum recoveries are the result of careful fact investigation, thoughtful legal analysis, and experienced advocacy. Insurance companies low-ball the unprepared; they pay fair compensation when there is no other way to avoid the expense and risk of trial. We do the hard work of being ready, willing, and able to try our client’s case if necessary, because it gets the results our clients deserve.
