What We Do

RVA Personal Injury Lawyers

Sharif Gray has won millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, and he is known for taking cases to trial.

  • $10,000,000

    Defendant, while racing on a residential road, crashed into an oncoming driver causing catastrophic injuries.

  • $9,000,000

    Defendant failed to properly secure a display at its store which led to it falling on a child causing life altering injuries.

  • $1,500,000

    Defendant failed to keep the entrance of its store safe for the public causing significant injuries. 

    The truth is:

    Insurance companies do not do the right thing because they should. They only do the right thing when you make them, and the only way to make them is to take them to court. And too many law firms do not go to court—they take whatever offer the insurance company makes them. 

    If your lawyer is consistently at court winning, the insurance companies know that and will settle your case for the right result. But if your law firm does not take cases to trial, the insurance companies will never do the right thing because they know that your law firm cannot get results in court. 

    Sharif Gray has proven that he can and will get results in court, and the insurance companies know that. Bad offers to settle your case do not intimidate him, they motivate him. If the insurance company is not interested in doing the right thing, he will take your case to court.

    “We Get Justice For Injured People, and We Love What We Do”

    Sharif Gray is not a settlement lawyer. He is committed to trying cases well. Because of that, he does not handle hundreds of cases at a time. He is selective in the cases he takes so he can get justice for the people he represents. 

    In every case, he has three goals:

    1. Hold the responsible individual or corporation fully accountable.

    2. Make the community safer, so others are not also harmed.

    3. Compensation that recognizes the full and fair value of what was taken from your health and quality of life.

    We love what we do, and we are proud of the positive impact we have had and will continue to have on the people we represent and the community we live in.

    There is no cap on damages in most personal injury cases. But there is a cap on damages in medical malpractice cases.
