"Thank you for all the time you and your staff put into winning my workers’ compensation claim. I appreciate everything you did. Your paralegal, Tammy, was always there for my questions or to hold my hand. But it was your smile and confident words of advice that made me believe that there would be a positive conclusion to my case."

-Nancy, Waynesboro, VA

"Steve Hammond represented me. I knew I was in good hands and I really trusted him. He worked hard to get great results and I was very, very pleased. He is a very personable attorney who can work well with all people no matter who they are or where they come from."

“I was sinking fast!  Everything I had was gone.  I needed a lawyer right away.  I was at sea without a boat.  It was sink or swim.  While I was swimming one day I looked in the yellow pages and found HammondTownsend.  I called, got a quick response back, met Mr. T at his office in Charlottesville.  Results came quick as these matters are not for us to navigate.  Mr. T is a pro at workman’s comp issues.  He handled my case, so, in other words, he sent the boat to get me out of the water and the boat got me to shore (dry land) during the whole process.  I feel like I was sea sick, then on dry land.  I got medical attention that I needed, got back on my feet.  My mind was settled because I trusted Mr. T.  Everything I went through was made much better for me mentally and physically because Mr. T is the professional workman’s comp lawyer you gotta have if you get hurt on the job.”  -Regina, Charlottesville, VA
“My lawyer was very good.  Love you all! Jason Mullins and Jason Queen.” -Judy, Roanoke, VA
“Mr. Hammond was very professional.  Ms. Knicely always returned phone calls and was very patient.”  -Alice, Madison, VA
“Although I never met Tracy or Jason in person, they were always very caring, concerned and professional.  They made a painful situation for me easier to deal with.  I couldn’t be more pleased with them.  Thanks to them both.”  -Karen, Lynchburg, VA
“I truly appreciate everyone that helped me with my case.  Mr. Townsend and Ann Knicely were great to work with.  Thank you.”

-Lynette, Spotsylvania, VA
“Jason Mullins was very helpful with advice and helped with other issues.”

-Steven, Roanoke, VA
“Attorney Jason Mullins was GREAT!!  I really appreciate that he took a personal interest in my case.  He made me feel very comfortable in every aspect of my case from beginning to end.  I knew very little about what rights I had as an injured employee.  He explained everything about my case because I was close with the Sheriff and did not want to do anything to jeopardize my friendship with him.  I had a severe knee injury and could not continue in my line of work.  Jason helped me realize that I had to do what was best for my family.  I can’t express how grateful I am for what Jason did for me!  I feel as if we have been friends for many years!  I hope HammondTownsend knows what they have in Jason, he is AWESOME!  Thank you to Jason and the staff at HammondTownsend.  You gave me back my life and made me realize my knee injury and leaving the Sheriff’s office was not the end of the world.”  ~ Brad, Martinsville, VA
“Thanks Hammond Townsend!  Jason Mullins was a pleasure to work with on my case.  Jennifer Perez also was great and taking my phone calls and answering all of my questions.”  -Darius, Altavista, VA
