J. Brian Slaughter

Workers' Compensation Attorney

For over twenty years, Brian Slaughter has worked in virtually every area of Workers’ Compensation law. He started out in general practice in Alabama, representing injured workers in both state and federal Workers’ Compensation cases. On returning home, he served the Commonwealth of Virginia as Staff Attorney for The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. In this role, he wrote more than 600 Review Opinions, successfully mediated more than 100 matters to full and final settlement, and served as the Commission Editor of The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act, Annotated (2002 and 2003 editions). For more than a decade, Brian successfully represented employers and insurers in the defense of Workers’ Compensation claims. He brought this perspective and considerable knowledge earned working for the “other side” with him to Rutter Mills – invaluable experience which helps ensure the best possible outcome for our clients who have been injured on the job. He is a frequent and popular speaker at Workers’ Compensation seminars across Virginia.
