Local Virginia Counsel

Woods Rogers attorneys often act as local counsel for companies as well as other law firms that file suit on behalf of their clients in the Western or Eastern District Courts of Virginia.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our attorneys have experience in representing clients in arbitrations, mediations, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). We regularly handle matters before the American Arbitration Association, JAMS, and other ADR forums. Our attorneys also have experience in international arbitration and the unique procedures they involve.

We counsel clients on available forms of ADR and on the applicable procedures, including reviewing proposed contractual arbitration clauses or other contract provisions providing for forms of alternative dispute resolution. Our goal is to resolve conflict early if it makes sense for you and, if so, how the provisions should be drafted.

Case Management

Our team of paralegals and professionals provides document management, investigation, E-Discovery, and case management support. Their skill allows us to provide you with timely and efficient legal services.

You could choose to pursue a matter aggressively, commit to a trial, engage in an early settlement, or position the case for some form of alternative dispute resolution. Whichever path you desire, we will assign a team with the appropriate expertise and establish a case plan to achieve your goals efficiently and cost-effectively.
