When Virginia lawmakers increased the jurisdictional limit in General District Courts from $15,000 to $25,000 in 2011, the number of cases filed skyrocketed. Although litigation in the General District Court certainly has its advantages such as quicker resolution and savings on experts, there are also pitfalls to avoid.
This course, presented by Amy L. Bradley, reviews the issues that litigators will want to consider in deciding whether General District Court is the best jurisdiction to file, the statutory scheme governing such cases, and the pitfalls to avoid.
I am passionate about seeking justice for my clients. Clients often come to me in the worst moments of their lives, following an encounter with law enforcement or after being injured through no fault of their own. It’s my goal to guide them through the legal process with a compassionate and relatable approach, while zealously protecting their interests. I work with my clients to strategize and achieve the best possible outcomes.
I was inspired to attend law school while working as a television investigative reporter. The opportunity to report on several high-profile cases, including an appearance on the 'Dan Abrams Report', sparked my interest in the study of law. My communications background gives me the ability to advocate effectively in the courtroom. My journalistic curiosity leads me to think outside-the-box.
My versatile trial experience includes more than 100 bench and jury trials in criminal and civil cases. As a criminal defense attorney, I represent adults and juveniles on matters ranging from traffic offenses to serious felony charges. In personal injury matters, I represent clients on cases ranging from minor car accidents to life-altering injuries. I assist corporations in a wide variety of matters. I also serve as Deputy Town Attorney for the Town of Vienna where I prosecute misdemeanor crimes and traffic offenses.
I previously worked as in-house counsel for one of the country’s largest insurance companies giving me unique and valuable insight into how to maximize recovery for injured persons. I know how large insurance companies handle and evaluate claims from beginning to end. My ability to see both sides of injury cases gives me the ability to anticipate defense strategies and prepare accordingly.
If you are looking for an approachable, multi-faceted attorney, who will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 883-0208. I look forward to speaking with you.
