What Makes Phelan Petty Different as a Law Firm?
If you’re looking for a lawyer to handle your personal injury case, it’s not hard to find one. Just turn on the TV, listen to the morning radio, or watch billboards as you drive by. There are plenty of law firms handling personal injury cases, and they have their way of representing clients — which usually means an attorney is not involved in the case unless the staff cannot get the case settled.
At Phelan Petty, we use a different approach. We take on a small number of important cases every year, and most of these cases involve severe injuries and complex legal problems. Our attorneys give each case our personal attention, and we devote the time and resources needed to truly know our clients and address their unique issues.
A Proven Approach Grounded in Research and Resources to Deliver Results
We’re educated as lawyers, but we research like scientists and ask questions like detectives. We know trucking regulations better than the driver behind the wheel. We look at the manufacturing details of faulty medical devices and consumer products with the eyes of engineers. And we can cross-examine a medical expert or go head-to-head with the developer of a dangerous drug.
We also engage world-class experts, investigators, and consultants to put us in the best position to win for our clients. The attorneys at Phelan Petty put their hearts and minds into every case, and we’re constantly learning, seeking, and aiming higher so we can protect and serve our valued clients.

Recognized by Our Peers as Leaders in Virginia Injury Law
Our Virginia personal injury lawyers are leaders in the legal field, and we believe strongly in upholding the honor and integrity of the legal profession and advancing it for future generations. Our attorneys have long served on the Board of Governors of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, and are active in numerous professional, legislative, and other committees. We also stay active with the American Association for Justice (AAJ). To support the AAJ and its efforts to protect our clients, we serve on the organization’s Board of Governors and several other important committees, and we also participate in the AAJ’s Leaders Forum and PAC.
We’re also proud of the recognition and commendations bestowed upon us by our colleagues. U.S. News & World Report has recognized our firm on their Best Law Firms list, and the partners at Phelan Petty have been ranked by their peers in the legal community at the highest level of professional competence and ethical excellence. Our attorneys have also been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers in their respective practice areas, indicating a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
But the greatest honor we receive from our peers is that they regularly refer their clients to us, entrusting us to handle the most complex injury cases they encounter.
