Barrett Richardson and Mike Eberhardt’s experience in Commonwealth’s Attorneys’ offices allows them to approach your case from two perspectives – that of an experienced defense attorney and an experienced prosecutor. Mike Rosenberg has served as a Special Prosecutor by appointment of the Judges of the Circuit Court of the City of Portsmouth in cases which have included Murder, Robbery, Malicious Wounding, and Firearm Offenses.
We represent persons injured by the negligence (failure to use proper care) of others. If we agree to represent you, no attorney’s fee is charged unless a recovery is made (contingency fee). All attorneys are experienced in representing people who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in this situation. Barrett Richardson worked for a state – wide firm exclusively representing insurance companies for four years. His knowledge of the perspective of the “other side”, combined with Mike Rosenberg and Mike Eberhardt’s experience in trying cases involving injury and Wrongful Death cases, is put to work for our clients.
We are one of the few Hampton Roads/Tidewater area firms who regularly represent disabled persons whose applications for Social Security Disability benefits have been denied. These cases which are tried before a Social Security Administrative Law Judge require a great deal of preparation. This includes assembly of medical and employment records, vocational rehabilitation information and hearing preparation. Social Security Disability representation is undertaken on a contingent fee arrangement, as regulated by the Social Security Administration.
We also offer legal services in the areas of Family/Divorce law and Wills and Estate Administration.
We have tried over 300 jury trials to verdict. Hundreds of cases have been tried before Judges. There is no substitute for experience and willingness to go to trial if it is in the best interest of the people who trust us with important issues in their lives.
