Injured at Work?

A Passion for Justice


To our attorneys and staff, getting just compensation for injured workers is a goal they not only take pride in—they are passionate about it. We are ready to work for you—to hear your case and represent you from start to finish.

Nothing makes attorneys Steven P. Hammond and George L. Townsend more satisfied than preparing and WINNING cases for real people who need experienced attorneys to guide them through the maze of workers' compensation law.

Equal Representation


HammondTownsend doesn’t represent large corporations or insurance companies; they provide high quality legal representation to injured workers that deserve an informed, powerful voice in their claim process.

Both partners are military veterans, Virginia natives and dedicated community advocates. Their commitment to zealous representation as well as a deep understanding of their clients’ challenges make HammondTownsend the firm to be trusted with your compensation case. 

No Fee Until Recovery


There is no fee until we recover benefits for you, however, we do require you, regardless of the outcome of your case, to reimburse the firm for any costs incurred by the firm during the litigation of your claim.

Our services are available statewide. With offices currently in Charlottesville, Fishersville, Harrisonburg, Richmond and Roanoke, the team at HammondTownsend can come to you anywhere in Virginia. In HammondTownsend cases, there is no fee until there is a recovery.
