Firm Overview

I have been practicing law since 1983. This firm was established in 1995. We focus on representing seriously injured people in the Northern Virginia area. We also represent claimants in disability insurance policies both individual and group.

If you have been injured in an accident, before you speak to the adjuster, hire an attorney or sign any forms first, get our free books, CDs and information packages about your claim. You may not need to hire an attorney at all. An educated claimant has the best opportunity to maximize recovery in their case. Before choosing an attorney most clients request and read our book, "The Truth about Lawyer Advertising."

Example cases

Each case is different and no representation is made that past results are a guarantee of future success. Mine include a verdict of over $3 million against a urologist for a man who lost his penis.

In another case of a late diagnosis of colon cancer, a verdict of $1 million was recovered.

In another case against a truck driver, a verdict of $850,000 was recovered.

More information about past verdicts and settlements are available here.

Fees

Free Initial Consultation?

We do offer a free consultation. However, we require that before someone schedules a free consultation that they request and review our free information packages consisting of books DVDs and CDs. The length of the free initial consultation depends on the circumstances and this will be discussed on an initial phone call.

Services Offered For Fixed Fees?

Since we're personal injury attorneys most of our cases are handled on a contingency basis. We represent children who've been injured in car accidents in Northern Virginia and some cases can be settled without filing a lawsuit for free. This applies to children 12 years and younger at the time of the accident. In a typical personal injury case, if we can get your case settled before filing the lawsuit, the fee is 25% of the recovery. The fee once a lawsuit is filed is typically one third of the recovery.

Hourly Rates

In disability cases Mr. Glass's hourly rates are $750 an hour however, most of the work is quoted on a flat fee basis depending on the nature of the case.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

People who have been injured by the carelessness of others often have many fears. Not the least of which is that they will lose their homes because of the mounting, and sometimes uncontrollable, medical bills that they are incurring. I can help people through these times of crisis and this is why I am a personal injury/medical malpractice attorney.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

There are many cases in which clients do not need an attorney. There are also many cases where they do not need an attorney right now. However, they do need quality information before speaking to the adjuster, signing any forms or hiring an attorney. To the publication of books CDs and DVDs, together with hundreds of videos, I seek to educate the public about their legal situation before they speak to an adjuster or hire an attorney.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

This really is not applicable to my practice areas.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We do offer coaching and consulting in personal injury cases. We will advise a client of our fees for this type of advice. Fees typically run between $500 and $1,500 depending on the nature of the case.

Benjamin W. Glass

I was an associate, and then a partner, in a small medical malpractice and personal injury law firm in Arlington Virginia from 1983 to 1995. That firm was Shevlin and Glass

I'm the father of nine children. I've educated my children in public schools in Virginia. I've been practicing law for almost 30 years. I'm also a business consultant to hundreds of small businesses across the country. My speaking, writing, and consulting experience, when combined with the many years I've been practicing law, help make me a better lawyer.

I approach all legal cases with commonsense and a rational attitude toward success. We do not over promise results. We do not rely on hype and crazy advertising. We do not believe that yelling and screaming gets good results. We are logical and analytical and clinical.

Personal interests:

Raising my nine children and being married for almost 30 years to my best friend. I am a marathon runner and sports coach.
