The cowardly acts of several so-called plaintiff's personal injury lawyers have really gotten Doug Landau, of the Herndon law firm ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd., peeved. Rather than discuss these lawyers' shortcomings, lawyer Landau will simply do what he has always done, share his calendar with those brave enough to come to court to pursue their rights and encourage those disabled victims to learn from him as he tries cases throughout the East Coast.
Recently, several disabled clients with Workers Compensation, Personal Injury and Social Security Disability cases from Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William Counties, Virginia came to see a contested case where the defense relied upon weeks of surveillance videotaping of lawyer Landau's disabled client. These courageous clients were able to learn many things that will help them focus on their own cases when their turn comes to go to court. All agreed that the experience was invaluable. More than just a "Court house tour," these meetings with Doug Landau AT THE COURT after an actual trial enable for a "Question and Answer" session while the case is still fresh in everyone's minds. Doug Landau wishes that all personal injury, workers compensation and Social Security Disability lawyers would encourage their clients to attend hearings and trials well in advance of their own "day in court." To that end, here are some upcoming dates:
