TOP LAWYERS 2012

methodology
We asked area lawyers to nominate who they thought were the best legal minds in Northern Virginia when it came to criminal and personal injury lawyers, both on the prosecution and defense side of the table.

Lawyers were asked to keep this question in mind when nominating their peers: If you had a close friend or family member who needed a criminal or personal injury lawyer, and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them? Below are those criminal and personal injury lawyers who received the most nominations.
