Civil, Commercial, Employment & Personal Injury

Civil lawsuits can be stressful — unless you have an experienced litigator fighting for you. Simms Showers LLP represents clients in most areas of civil litigation before federal, state and local courts, including trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations. If you are facing losses due to someone else’s negligence or deliberate wrongdoing, our Leesburg civil litigation attorneys can help. We are prepared to conduct an investigation and provide you with the aggressive representation that your case deserves.

Employment Law

No one has the right to harass you at your place of work or deny you access to employee benefits. Simms Showers LLP protects the rights of workers from abusive colleagues or opportunistic management. Have you been the victim of workplace discrimination or wrongful termination? Do you believe that your employer violated your FLSA leave, or has subjected you to work overtime without pay? Our attorneys will stand up to your employer for you to help you receive the treatment in the workplace that you deserve.

Personal Injury

Our legal system offers protection under personal injury law to people who are seriously injured through the negligence or wrongful actions of others. Under Virginia’s contributory negligence law, you have the right to recover compensation as long as you did not contribute in any way to causing the injury.

Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury case and one of our personal injury lawyers can review your accident, gather evidence and identify liable parties to help you recover damages. Without an attorney, injury victims come up against insurance companies that use tactics to deny or delay their claims.

By putting a strong advocate on your side, you can level the playing field and receive the compensation you are entitled to by law. It is vital to seek legal help when someone else is at fault for your injury – especially when you have serious personal injuries such as head trauma or spinal damage.

Criminal Defense & Traffic Violations

When you are charged with a crime, you have a lot to lose — your money, your freedom, your reputation, and your future. That’s why it’s crucial to obtain reliable criminal defense representation. Our seasoned trial lawyers are former criminal prosecutors, so they are intimately familiar with the judicial system and are well-prepared to protect your civil liberties. Let us use our knowledge and experience to fight for the best outcome possible in your case.

DUI/DWI

Driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are criminal charges and you have the right to an attorney for your defense. Breathalyzers which measure alcohol content are not foolproof, and DUI lawyers can often challenge the results. However, if you are convicted of a DUI, the penalties include jail time, fines, and license revocation.

If you are arrested for drunk driving, you have the right to consult with a DUI lawyer prior to taking a chemical test. When asked by law enforcement officers if you want to speak with a lawyer, say yes. It cannot be held against you. Call us today for guidance to protect your rights.

Traffic Violations

Did you recently receive a traffic citation? In Virginia, traffic violations remain on your driving record and the point accumulations will affect your insurance rates. They can even lead to a license revocation. The greater the miles per hour exceeding the speed limit, the more serious the speeding violation. For some charges, however, you can have your record sealed or destroyed through a process called an expungement. Call us today if you would like to know if this is an option for you.
