Count on MichieHamlett for help with your most pressing, important or vital legal needs. Call to discuss your needs and concerns in any of the following areas:

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals need to practice with the level of competence and attention expected of other providers in the medical community with similar education and training. When negligent care falls below this standard, doctors and hospitals can be held liable for the harm that results. Medical malpractice cases are notoriously difficult and complex, but our dedicated team has the skills and experience necessary to take on the medical establishment and hold doctors and hospitals accountable for the needless tragedies caused by their avoidable mistakes. Our office has recovered sizeable verdicts and settlements in cases involving surgical errors, birth injuries, misdiagnosis, medication errors and other forms of medical malpractice.

Products Liability

Consumers have no way of knowing a product is unsafe until after some tragic accident occurs. It’s unconscionable for manufacturers to put products on the market that haven’t been properly designed, tested and manufactured. Sometimes, corporations know about potential defects but turn a blind eye rather than spend a few extra pennies per product to make them safe. Our team takes on the biggest manufacturers and holds them liable for product defects across the range of Virginia products liability law, including dangerous drugs and defective medical devices, tire defects, and defective household products and consumer goods. Our attorneys are prepared to handle individual claims or the largest class-action lawsuits to hold companies accountable for their failure to protect the public from their negligence.

Catastrophic and Serious Personal Injury

The personal injury attorneys at MichieHamlett have a history of obtaining significant financial recoveries on behalf of injury victims in car and trucking accidents, asbestos injuries, and more. We take on the most serious cases involving traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or wrongful death. Backed by decades of experience and success, our lawyers know how to build and present a solid, compelling case that proves the defendant’s negligence and liability and the substantial amount of compensation that is fair and needed to help our clients deal with the harm that has been inflicted on them.

Estate Planning

At MichieHamlett, we take the time to sit down with you, understand your needs and goals for the future, and advise you on the best way to get there. We’ll draft the right set of wills, trusts and advance directives to make sure you are protected during your lifetime and that your family is looked after when you are gone. From simple wills to complex estates rife with issues of asset protection and tax planning, MichieHamlett has the knowledge, skills and experience to address your needs so you can live your life with peace of mind and security knowing you and your family are taken care of. Our estate planning practice also includes probate and estate administration as well as representation in any probate, trust or estate litigation that may arise.

Family Law

Our comprehensive family law practice goes beyond the traditional matters of divorce, child custody and visitation and extends to cutting-edge areas of the law surrounding assisted reproductive technology and LGBTQIA issues. Whether you are working collaboratively toward a shared, common goal or find yourself in the midst of a heated dispute, our family law attorneys protect your rights and interests while working toward a resolution that meets the needs of you and your family now and into the future. Family law decisions have lasting impacts that ripple throughout the family. Let us help you get your matter accomplished right the first time so you can move forward confidently as you start a new chapter in your life.

Business and Corporate Law

Businesses in Virginia benefit from the practical advice, technical assistance and strategic representation our commercial and corporate lawyers offer. Our attorneys are skilled in every legal aspect that touches upon a company’s existence, from entity formation and corporate governance to commercial transactions and contracts with employees, customers, vendors, suppliers, developers, lenders, and more. As disputes arise, whether sounding in contract or tort, we work to resolve the matter strategically and efficiently in our clients’ best interests. The corporate team at MichieHamlett is also equipped to deal with securities arbitration and investor issues, from advice on avoiding pitfalls to dispute resolution.

Criminal Defense

Getting arrested and charged with a crime is an intimidating experience with potentially life-altering consequences. We take every matter seriously and dedicate ourselves to getting an excellent result out of an otherwise disastrous situation. We take the anxiety and intimidation out of the equation by letting you know your options and what to expect, giving you good advice, and zealously protecting your rights and representing your interests in pre-trial motions, plea negotiations, and courtroom trials. We’ll let you know where you stand so you can make the decisions that are right for you. MichieHamlett accepts criminal matters with charges involving serious felonies and white-collar criminal offenses.

Civil Litigation

When one party feels wronged by another, or when parties can’t work out their differences on their own, the path to resolving those disagreements or settling that dispute leads to a Virginia courtroom. Whether you find yourself going by the name of plaintiff or defendant in a civil case, our experienced courtroom litigators can advise you of your options and represent your interests, guiding you to an out-of-court settlement or jury verdict. Call MichieHamlett for help with any civil legal matter, including employment and labor law, landlord-tenant matters, defamation, construction litigation, intellectual property disputes, and allegations of legal malpractice.

Title IX

Public schools in Virginia receive financial assistance from the federal government, which enables Washington to pass federal laws that reach local school boards and university departments. Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities, including sports and extracurricular activities. Is your school providing equal opportunities to males and females when it comes to participation in sports programs? Are scholarship funds apportioned fairly? What about the quality of playing fields and facilities, equipment, travel, coaching and the myriad other aspects of sport funded by the school? The answers to these questions often play out in federal courtrooms, with significant consequences for students, student-athletes, and Virginia school systems.
