The firm has represented thousands of accident victims throughout the Eastern United States and the firm’s lawyers have over 100 years combined legal experience. Our regular law firm website is hsinjurylaw.com. We participate in this web blog so we can “give back” something intangible to victims and consumers and to help achieve safety improvements in general.
In 2005, the law firm was the first plaintiff’s injury firm in the State of Virginia selected for membership in a prestigious international group of law firms, called Primerus. Primerus carefully screens law firms and only offers membership to highly skilled and experienced attorneys. The Wall Street Journal reported “[Primerus] wants to offer consumers a way to pick the good from the bad by establishing a sort of ‘Good Housekeeping’ seal of approval for attorneys.”
