Personal Injury Lawyers


This may be the most traumatic experience you’ve ever had. Your accident, your injury – it’s serious. You can’t afford to trust your case to a lawyer who’s not equally serious, experienced and successful at taking on the big insurance companies. Not all firms are ready for the fight, but Rutter Mills is.

0 / 0

Personal injury litigation can help victims secure money for past, current, and anticipated damages – financial burdens that can quickly overwhelm a family when the breadwinner is unable to work.


Our experienced lawyers know how to anticipate the future financial impacts stemming from your injuries. We will pursue a claim for the amount of money your family deserves.


Personal injury settlements and verdicts are intended to make the plaintiff “whole” again. Our team will work to get you reimbursed for both financial damages and “non-economic” damages, like pain & suffering.

The Decisions You Make After an Accident Can Change Your Future

Personal injury is a vague term which can describe any number of incidents where you or a loved one is hurt. Here are a few examples of personal injury sectors:

But this doesn’t cover everything including car accidents, wrongful death, and so much more

No two cases are the same. You need a lawyer with the experience to know how to navigate complex areas of law and who are familiar with local courts. Rutter Mills has over 60 years experience representing injured clients in a variety of personal injury practice areas from car accidents to maritime law, and everything in between.

It takes money to bring a case to trial. Hiring expert witnesses and forensic teams can be costly. Not all firms have the financial resources to see a case through to a jury trial the way Rutter Mills can. Our team is made up of skilled trial attorneys backed by the fastest growing personal injury firm in Hampton Roads.

When everything is on the line, can you trust them to represent you with integrity and expertise? At Rutter Mills, we have built a solid reputation for winning cases, and doing it with integrity and professionalism.

Here’s something the insurance companies don’t want you to know.

One crucial thing to remember in any personal injury claim is the insurance companies, despite their claims, are NOT on your side. They are for-profit businesses whose goal is to pay as little as possible for your injuries.

It is always better to speak with an experienced attorney before discussing your case with an insurance agent. At Rutter Mills, we have lawyers on call day or night to answer your questions and help you in your time of need.

A recent study by Martindale-Nolo showed people who were represented by a lawyer received 4.5 times more on average than those who represented themselves. Many of our attorneys once worked for the insurance companies. They know how they operate and how to beat them.

Insurance companies may pressure you into accepting lowball offers immediately after your accident, but you may not know the full extent of your damages or injuries. Don’t fall for their tricks. Speak to a skilled injury lawyer at Rutter Mills before you take any “deals” from the insurance company.


You don’t have to worry about the bills, just get healthy.

Adam Lotkin, Max Baker, and the team behind them are amazing people. They did a great job with communicating and explaining each step of the process and they do the absolute best in ensuring their clients are taken care of. For my case in specific, we expected to wait 2 year to settle l, but through the team’s hard work and a little luck, it was settled in less than a year. I would not hesitate to come back to them if I ever needed to.

Thomas B.

My experience with Rutter Mills was outstanding from beginning to end. My case was handled in a timely manner and I was kept in the loop throughout the entire process. Outstanding job Rutter Mills!

Redd E.

I had and still do have the most valuable, professional and friendly relationship with Selena Paszkiewicz and Mr. Lotkin. It was a bit rough waiting for the case to conclude because of covid; however, it was DEFINITELY worth the wait and the experience. Not to mention how, as a 20 year plus employment. Selena was so gracious as to assist me in paralegal questions, as I've just graduated from studying law as a paralegal. Upon the case being concluded, she has still promised I could always call for advice and paralegal help. I'm going to grow up to be just like her (lol). Rutter Mills attorneys and paralegals, especially Mr. Lotkin and Selena Paszkiewicz, you're the best ever. PLEASE PLEASE keep doing what you love. When you do what you're meant for and with the joy you both have in it, it's not a job or work... it's a career for life!!!

Monica H

Going in the conversation I was anxious not knowing what to expect and by the end of the call she made me left feeling great, hopeful, and somewhat energetic. Thank you so much!

Dorian F.

Joe Young and Kathy Saunders were the absolute best. They kept me informed and properly communicated all information with me in a timely manner. They also were able to get me the amount I requested without going back and forth with me. They were a true pleasure to work with and for this reason I will continue to do business with Rutter Mills.
