Our Personal Injury Expertise

Our History

Experience. Integrity. Results.

In the early ‘80s, Jim Hundley and Ed Johnson worked together at a large general practice firm. While practicing law at that firm, the attorneys recognized their mutual desire to start a law firm that was focused on helping those who have suffered any personal injury due to the negligence of others. The two attorneys began exploring how they could make this dream a reality.

In 1984, the coworkers left their current positions and launched Hundley & Johnson on Staples Mill Road. Their goal was to give clients who have been injured through no fault of their own the best possible legal representation at the most reasonable cost.

Since opening Hundley & Johnson, the steadily increasing volume of work has resulted in sons T. O’Connor Johnson and D. Brooks Hundley joining their fathers at the firm. This second generation of Hundley & Johnson attorneys, who began their practices in the late ‘90s, now play pivotal roles with Hundley & Johnson.

With their more 80 years of collective personal injury experience, Hundley & Johnson’s attorneys are supported by a skilled staff, who are compassionate about what you’re going through and are here to take care of your needs. While our capable paralegals are compiling the appropriate documentation for your case, our savvy investigators are uncovering the facts necessary to win the best possible outcome for you. We can also offer you alternate dispute resolution like arbitration and mediation, when appropriate, to save you time and money.

Experience, integrity and results are the cornerstone of our firm. They’re the reason clients trust us to gain compensation for their injuries and the driving force behind Hundley & Johnson’s success.

Local Counsel Agreements

Attorneys from other states often ask Hundley & Johnson to serve as their local counsel in Virginia. We make a reasonable fee agreement for these services.
