General Civil Litigation

General Civil Litigation in Virginia

An Experienced Team

Chadwick Washington’s team of litigators has the knowledge and experience to expertly handle any legal disputes that may arise for our clients.  Our civil litigation team, which expanded in February 2021 to add Janeen Koch and her team in the Richmond office, is comprised of highly-trained trial attorneys with over 25 years of experience litigating and trying cases in state and federal courts in Virginia and Washington, D.C., arguing before appellate courts, appearing before administrative tribunals and regulatory bodies, and participating in alternative dispute resolution proceedings.

Although our team stands ready to try any case that cannot otherwise be favorably resolved, we recognize that litigation may result in substantial costs, stress, and uncertainty.  Our team works closely with clients to weigh the risks and benefits of litigation and has mediated hundreds of cases to obtain more favorable and less costly results.  We know that timely, consistent communication and a collaborative team approach is essential in obtaining a beneficial outcome to any legal dispute.

Innovative Strategies

Chadwick Washington’s lawyers have successfully represented a variety of business entities including community associations and insurance carriers and insured parties.  Our lawyers can also represent motor carriers, construction companies, contractors, product manufacturers, hotels, restaurants and retailers.  Our litigation team uses innovative strategies and creative approaches to address our clients’ needs.  We consider not only the time commitment and financial impact each case may have on the client, but the client’s reputation in the industry it serves.

We have an extensive network of highly skilled engineers, medical doctors, consultants and investigators to assist our attorneys with investigating claims, handling complex technical and scientific issues, and ensuring that each case is exceptionally prepared for mediation, arbitration or trial.  Our attorneys also maintain memberships with numerous trade groups and associations to stay apprised of the latest legal developments that impact our clients and to maintain invaluable relationships with experts in the industries in which our clients are involved.

Integrity and Respect

The attorneys on our team also believe that the utmost integrity and honesty are crucial to our success.  Our trial attorneys are highly respected and trusted among both attorneys and judges in the legal community.  This trust and confidence helps us achieve not only positive results, but positive experiences for our clients during the often-difficult litigation process.
