We Focus on People
If you are engaged in a business dispute, facing criminal charges, concerned about the visa or green card process, starting a new business, or you have been seriously injured in a car or work-related accident, you know that legal issues are nothing if not personal.
At Valverde & Rowell, P.C., we put our clients first. We understand that the outcome of your legal matter can have a direct impact not only on your immediate circumstances but also on your future. Our experienced Virginia Beach attorneys will take the time necessary to understand your problem, your concerns and all your possible solutions to achieve success.
Each of our lawyers has several years of experience in their key areas of focus. We have an in-depth knowledge of U.S. federal and Virginia state laws to effectively advise you or represent you in state or federal court, or in negotiations.
Personal Injury Representation
Our Virginia Beach personal injury lawyers provide the experienced and dedicated representation you need after a serious motor vehicle accident or work-related accident. We understand the significant impact a serious injury can have on your life and your family. As your advocate, we will take proactive steps to achieve maximum compensation on your behalf through negotiation or litigation.
If you suffered an injury on the job, our Virginia Beach workers' compensation attorneys can assist you in filing a claim for workers' compensation. All employers have a legal obligation to provide workers' compensation for those who are injured in workplace accidents. We will advocate on your behalf to obtain all benefits to which you may be entitled under Virginia workers' compensation law.
Aggressive Norfolk Criminal Defense Lawyers
The Virginia criminal justice system takes criminal offenses very seriously, especially within the Virginia Beach jurisdiction. Our firm provides aggressive criminal defense representation to those accused of misdemeanor or felony crimes, from reckless driving or DUI to assault or sex crimes. We understand the significant impact a criminal conviction can have on your rights, your freedom and your reputation. Our firm also understands how criminal charges can affect a non-U.S. citizen's immigration status and prospects. We will protect your rights throughout the process and seek to achieve the best possible outcome.
Our immigration practice serves employers, churches, families and individuals who require experienced assistance with the confusing and complicated U.S. immigration process. We help companies meet their employment needs by providing experienced guidance with temporary or agricultural guest-worker visa and professional visa applications. We also assist individual foreign-born workers with employment visas and matters of family immigration such as fiancé visas as well as lawful permanent residency. We also help individuals in deportation proceedings or immigration detention.
Employment Law Representation
Our employment attorneys have strong legal backgrounds in employment law. We advise and represent both employers and employees in a variety of issues, including discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, non-compete agreements, Fair Labor Standards Act unpaid wage/compensation claims, EEOC claims, Family and Medical Leave Act claims, and unemployment claims, among others.
It can be extremely important to begin working with an employment law attorney the moment you have a legal concern, before you or your company is exposed to legal liability or you lose important legal rights.
Business Law Services
We provide experienced business law advice and representation for new and established businesses located in, or planning to do business in, Virginia Beach and the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. Our services include advice on the formation of business entities — such as partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), corporations or professional corporations (PCs) — contract negotiations, drafting agreements between co-owners, business litigation and other services you may need to help your business succeed.
