Virginia Workers Compensation & Disability Lawyer | Jerry Lutkenhaus

Firm Overview

When you have been injured on the job or have suffered an injury
that makes it impossible to work temporarily or permanently, it is
important to retain legal counsel that can advise you throughout the
process of obtaining benefits through workers' compensation or Social
Security disability. But when choosing an attorney, who do you look for?

For over 35 years, I have made it my mission and passion to provide
the best legal services to injured and disabled workers. As a
Martindale-Hubble AV-rated attorney my depth of knowledge in the areas
of workers' compensation and social security claims have included
winning cases in these areas: compensation denials, disputed claims,
social security disability claims, disability appeals, and workers'
compensation appeals.

My peers in Richmond Magazine in July 1999 selected me as one of the
best attorneys in Central Virginia for workplace injuries. Being
selected by your peers as 'Best Attorney' is a reflection of the depth
of my skills and knowledge. Furthermore, in 2005, 2006 & 2007
Lexis-Nexis listed me in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. My
firm specializes in Worker's Compensation and Social Security
exclusively in Virginia.

Workers Compensation
For over 35 years, I have been providing representation for injured workers in the Greater Richmond, VA area. I have successfully litigated these cases in the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission and the Virginia Court of Appeals.
My firm has been recognized as one of the best workers' compensation firms in Central Virginia in Richmond Magazine, Martindale-Hubbell and AVVO.

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

I have been dedicated to providing legal services for injured and disabled workers since 1974. I first worked with Legal Aid until 1981 when I formed my own firm. Since then I have handled over 1,000 Virginia Workers' Compensation & Social Security Disability Cases.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

I have 17 years of experience working with low income people at the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society. Since then, I have been a recognized as one of the best Virginia Workers' Compensation lawyers in Richmond Magazine. The preeminent legal authority Martindale-Hubbell gave me its highest rating of AV in 2003. AVVO has given me its highest rating of 10.0 in 2010 which rating I have maintained since that time.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At our law firm, we provide personal service for injured and disabled workers. Every applicant speaks to an attorney and not a paralegal. Almost all cases are handled on a contingency basis meaning there are "no" upfront costs or expenses.
