Our monthly personal injury recoveries against auto accident insurance companies exceed $2 million on average.
Why should you choose Portner & Shure for your Richmond car accident case? With so many law firms in the area, it makes sense to ask this question. We break our answer down to the Four R’s: Reviews, Ratings, Recognition, and Results.
- Reviews: In Virginia and Maryland, our law firm has hundreds of 5-star reviews from prior clients. Some of our competitors, on the other hand, have very few reviews and/or poor ratings. Past client reviews reflect overall satisfaction with both service and results.
- Ratings: Two of our lawyers have the highest possible attorney rating from AVVO, which is 10/10 “Superb.”
- Recognition: Two of our lawyers are recognized by Super Lawyers®. Three have been recognized by The National Top 100 Trial Lawyers. The firm as a whole is recognized by The Best Attorneys of America® organization.
- Results: While prior results don’t guarantee future case outcomes, we recover more $2 million each month combined from insurers like GEICO, Allstate, State Farm, USAA, James River, and Erie.
Our Richmond car accident attorneys handle serious motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, and tractor-trailer accidents. We can also evaluate whether you are entitled compensation due to medical malpractice, as well as defective medical devices like fault hernia meshes. In addition, we are highly skilled in the area of immigration law, protecting our clients’ interests to the fullest extent in order to protect their freedom and help them achieve their immigration goals.

Focused on Recovering the Most for Our Clients
While our firm handles soft tissue accident claims, we are known for our recoveries in serious personal injury cases. Such cases often net recoveries over $1,000,000. They require extensive experience in litigation, and a litigation group that has the experience and the resources to retain the top experts when battling top defense attorneys.
Mr. Portner is a member of both the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum® as a result of previous large awards. Mr. Rahi previously litigated cases on the defense side while working at GEICO. Now he has taken that insurance defense trial training and uses it for the benefit of Portner & Shure’s injury clients. In 2020, we will try or settle several cases over $1,000,000 and $2,000,000 respectively. Many personal firms never do that in a lifetime.
When you suffer from an accident or injury, you can sue the person or company you believe to be legally responsible for the accident. If you succeed, the insurance company of the responsible party will cover some or all of your related expenses. But if you do this on your own, or without a Richmond personal injury firm that has a track record of excellent courtroom recoveries from the insurance companies, your net recovery can be much, much less!
Understand the Full Consequences of an Injury
A serious injury can inflict devastating consequences on all aspects of your life. You may not be able to work. You may struggle to move around without assistance. Everyday tasks may have become challenging or even impossible.
After suffering an injury due to someone else’s negligence, the first step you need to take is finding a lawyer who will educate you about your rights and devise a strategy to hold all responsible parties accountable and maximum your recovery. At Portner & Shure, we help Richmond clients obtain compensation for a wide range of damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Noneconomic damages like pain and suffering damages are generally worked directly with the client, a paralegal, and Mr. Portner or Mr. Rahi to make certain they are fully accurate.
When you employ our team during your legal dispute, you will benefit from exceptional skills, years of experience, a proven history of success, and aggressive litigation tactics. We will dedicate our time and resources to your case, working to prove you have suffered damages and others are liable for those damages. Our goal is to get you the compensation you deserve and not a penny less.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Virginia?
In Virginia, there is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to pursue any compensation at all. If your claim is against a city, town, or municipal entity, the statute of limitations changes to only six months. Likewise, if your injury claim is against the state of Virginia, you have only one year to file a claim.
Our Rewards & Titles Speak for Us
We have a national reputation as a premier law firm. We are recognized by the Top 100 Trial Lawyers, rated 10/10 by AVVO, and recognized by the Best Attorneys of America. Further, Mr. Portner is a member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®. Fewer than 1% of all trial attorneys are recognized by this prestigious organization. Mr. Rahi is recognized by Super Lawyers and by the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40.
What Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
When you suffer from an accident or injury, you can sue the person or company you believe to be legally responsible for the accident. If you succeed, the insurance company of the responsible party will cover some or all of your related expenses. But you don’t need to attempt this on your own. Personal injury attorneys from Portner & Shure can represent you in either an informal negotiation or a civil court proceeding.
Personal injury—even minor forms—can inflict devastating consequences on all aspects of your life. You may not be able to work. You may struggle to move around without assistance. Everyday tasks may have become challenging or even impossible.

Serving Short Pump, Williamsburg & Dinwiddie
Our convenient Richmond area office is easily accessible to all our clients from Short Pump, Dinwiddie, and Williamsburg, addressing the legal needs of the people living in these communities.
As Short Pump’s population has increased in recent years so has the amount of serious automobile accidents. Further, with the development of more commercial properties, such as the Short Pump Town Center and other massive shopping and living spaces, most notably West Broad Village, the area has seen a rise in both construction and slip and fall accidents.
Dinwiddie County is a small community enriched in American History, specifically the civil war era. Before there were accidents in Dinwiddie, there was the Battle of Lewis’s Farm, Battle of Five Forks, Battle of Sutherland’s Station, Battle of White Oak Road, and notably, the Battle of Dinwiddie Court House. Our attorneys will now battle in the Dinwiddie courthouse for our clients.
Williamsburg is one of the oldest cities in the U.S., making it a popular tourist attraction due to its historical significance. Additionally, it is home of one of the biggest amusement parks in the nation, attracting even more tourists to the area. With tourists flooding to Williamsburg, non-locals unaccustomed to the roads are frequently causing accidents. We also see a number of local and out-of-state driver DWIs in this region.
