  • Your voice in the complex workers’ compensation process.

Don’t try to handle your claim by yourself. The Workers’ Compensation Act in Virginia focuses heavily on the interests of the employer and its insurance company. Therefore, consulting an attorney that is highly skilled in workers’ compensation law is critical to winning your case. The experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorneys at HammondTownsend will guide you through every step of the process.

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.
