Hear Lucille's Story

After being injured on the job, Teacher Assistant Lucille filed a Virginia Workers' Compensation claim. Hear her story and why she contacted HammondTownsend.


I shall always and forever remember [HammondTownsend] for all that you did to bless me and my family life when I went through such an awful ordeal during my back and shoulder surgery. I will recommend you to everyone I know. I can’t thank you enough…Though I cried what seemed like a river of tears from pain, hurt, and betrayal, you put a big huge smile on my face and brought sunshine to my life. I can’t thank you enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Lucille, Charlottesville VA

Mr. Townsend and his paralegal, Jennifer Perez, worked tirelessly on my case for 3 years. Not only did they fight for me, they also listened when no one else would. Having a worker’s comp claim is mentally and physically exhausting, but they made it as bearable as they could which included many long conversations listening to me. Everyone should have an attorney who cares like Mr. T.

Brenda, Henry VA

“Our paralegal was so helpful to me. There were times I didn’t even know what I was going to do. I was so depressed, but she talked to me as a friend and made me feel like I could get through this.”

Rhonda, Shawsville VA

Annie, Shipman VA

This is the second time that I’ve had the opportunity to have Hammond Townsend represent me and I would recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Dana, Verona VA

“Steve Hammond; a good old country boy that will make you comfortable and put you at ease. But when the fight starts, the country boy goes away and the warrior takes over.”

Bear, Colonial Beach VA

I am very satisfied with this law firm. My emails are answered in a timely fashion, updates are given on a regular. I don’t have to worry, be afraid of hearings. Mr. T is a very confident attorney. His paralegal is as professional as the firm as a whole. I would recommend Hammond Townsend at the drop of a dime, to anyone that I thought needed a workman’s comp lawyer.
Thank you Hammond Townsend for all your expertise.

Regina, Charlottesville VA

Jason was the paralegal assigned to me. He was amazing. He thoroughly made sure I was taken care of. He always either answered the phone or called me back the same day. They truly had my best interest at hand. Mr. Townsend always back Jason. If you need help, they are the law office you need. Thanks HammondTownsend

Shawn, Northern Virginia

“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

Wow! Where to start! Found this law firm to be very professional. I was comfortable asking questions as I got understandable answers. Mr. T has the workman’s comp laws on a T (a Lil humor). I was having a hard time with the injury things like pain from surgeries and PT. It was just looking bleak…but Tammy Furry & George Townsend helped me with everything I needed, even transportation that I needed to get back and forth to PT, and they worked with the pharmacy to get my meds at my home. Can’t go wrong with HammondTownsend – only right. If you have a work related injury call HammondTownsend.

Chantal, Northern Virginia

“Our paralegal was very helpful. She answered all of my questions and even called me back when she wasn’t in the office. Very good.”

Junelia, Roanoke VA

“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

“I was very fortunate to have Steve Hammond representing me in my personal injury lawsuit. He made a point to reach out to me personally in the duration of my case to inquire about my recovery as well as keep me informed of any new developments. Steve and his staff were always prompt in responding to any of my calls or emails and made me feel like I was a priority. I was very pleased with the result of my lawsuit and was impressed with the balance of professionalism and personalized service. I would recommend Steve’s services to anyone looking for a lawyer who will put in the work to suit a client’s needs.”

Amy, Charlottesville VA

They advocated and advised me through the legal process and ultimately the judge awarded to me. Could not have succeeded without them.

Jennifer, Sterling VA

Thank you for guiding me through the workers’ compensation process. It has been a pleasure!

Marcia, Roanoke VA

“After a work related injury I sought professional assistance.  I am happy that my search took me to Hammond Townsend and … to Jason Queen which was very fortunate for me.  Mr. Queen researched and corresponded with all the necessary people to settle my case.  He was always quick to respond to my questions and concerns with patience and professionalism.  I would like to thank Jason Queen and the staff of Hammond Townsend for all that they did for me and my family.”

Jim, Northern Virginia

Thank you, thank you, for everything you’ve done for me! Your company is the best!

Melissa, Virginia Beach VA

Excellent people to work with. Kept me up-to-date and help me with my case. Highly recommend.

Tony, Augusta County VA

I called HammondTownsend in need of assistance with a workers compensation case. I was completely dismayed by the way my case was being handled by the Workers Compensation Insurance group. However, Mr. Hammond took on the challenge and made me feel comfortable and put my mind at ease and worked it out. Thanks Mr. Hammond, you and your assistant Melissa are awesome. I am so happy I reached a great and trustworthy attorney who helped me during my time of need. I would recommend the Law firm of HammondTownsend if you’re in need of a legal team that will fight for you, provide positive outcomes and a great experience.

Rhonda, Chester VA

Excellent workman’s comp attorney, listened and reviewed all aspects of my case.

Ron, Botetourt County VA

I just wanted to say a big “Thank you!” for everything you both did, representing me in my case. Never in my life did I think I would be in the situation of having to go through a worker’s compensation case, but you both truly were amazing. You were kind and compassionate, your advice and guidance through the whole process was beyond anything I could have imagined. While I do hope I don’t have to refer y’all to anyone, as I don’t want to ever see anyone I know injured on the job, you will always be my first recommendation to anyone. Again, thank you both and I hope you have a blessed weekend.

Stephanie, Nottaway County VA

“I want to sincerely thank George Townsend for the services he provided in my behalf. I firmly believe had it not been for his assistance, the outcome would not have been anywhere near the settlement I received. I recommend you and your staff to anyone.”

Susan, Winchester VA

Thanks to you, Mr. Hammond, and the team for all of your services over the years. I really do appreciate it. You guys did good by me. Thanks again.

Derick, Winchester VA

“I needed an attorney to represent me for personal injuries I received in a car accident. Mr. Steven Hammond was my attorney and represented me. He handled everything and relieved me of the worry. I didn’t have to do a thing. I highly recommend Mr. Hammond based on the great job he did for me. Jeannette”
