Relentless Devotion. Proven Results.
Cantor, Stoneburner, Ford, Grana & Buckner is devoted to families devastated by catastrophic injury or death and other cases of serious personal and economic loss.
Our attorneys have achieved more than 60 verdicts and settlements exceeding $1,000,000 for their clients and are consistently listed in the Virginia Lawyers Weekly’s feature on “Largest Verdicts in Virginia.” The three senior partners each have more than 30 years of trial experience, and all five partners have received national recognition for their achievements in civil litigation.
Dedicated to Cases of Personal Injury
We understand that when clients and their families arrive at our office, they are facing a sudden and life-altering situation through no fault of their own. Our clients come from all walks of life, yet none are prepared for the traumatic changes that occur with catastrophic injury and wrongful death. Their families are under tremendous stress dealing with this new reality and are overwhelmed by the physical and emotional challenges of caring for their injured loved one.
While we can’t fix injured bodies or prevent fatal mistakes, we are tireless in our commitment to helping clients find comfort, regain their dignity, and empower them to a new independence.
Dedicated to Cases of Economic Loss
We understand that suffering substantial damages as the result of a business or will dispute or legal malpractice can create tremendous stress on an individual’s family, finances and livelihood.
Our creative approach to handling commercial litigation can mean the difference between obtaining satisfaction or starting over financially.
Dedicated to the Highest Standard of Excellence
Because our attorneys agree to handle only the most serious plaintiffs cases, our clients receive exhaustive and aggressive representation in negotiations and in trial, and most importantly, are treated with the compassion and respect they deserve.
Our attorneys know the legal system and their particular areas of practice and have been recognized for their professional leadership, litigation experience and reputation for legal acumen.
