Wrongful Death

Lee Livingston and Tony Greene have a heart for people and are gratified in helping you if you have lost a loved one. Telling your story in a way that helps a claims representative for an insurance company or ultimately a jury understand your loss is a solemn duty. 

Losing someone to a preventable death is a more serious blow, and allows for a legal remedy that brings a sense of justice and truth to a tragedy. 

 

Virginia law allows the statutory beneficiaries of a wrongful death victim to seek and obtain justice and recover monetary compensation for the death. We are here to help families protect themselves in the wake of an unexpected loss.  We take the legal case off your shoulders so that you can experience as much healing as you can while you lament the loss of your dear one.  

Lee and Tony have walked with people through the loss of children, parents, spouse, life partner, and they will be sure to allow you space to greave while marshalling the evidence to hold those accountable for the loss of your loved one.
