Every year, Virginia Business Magazine, in cooperation with the Virginia Bar Association, polls lawyers across Virginia asking them to identify which of their peers are the top attorneys across 21 categories of legal specialties. Over 14,000 attorneys and more than 50 law firms were contacted, inviting them to place their ballots.
We are pleased to announce that three of our personal injury attorneys were named to the list for the Civil Litigation category. Congratulations to Stephanie Grana, Elliott Buckner, and Scott Bucci!

She is currently an active member of the American Association of Justice, is the Chair of Commonwealth Community Trust, the Secretary on the board for Community Brain Injury Services, and has served as a member of the Boyd-Graves Conference for 13 years.
