I do not believe another lawyer could have done a better job handling my case than Hunt Whitehead.
Hunt Whitehead is the first person I call whenever I have a legal question.
Michele Chiocca does not back down. She made sure the truth came out in my case. She is the one you want on your side to represent you.
Everyone in the office was friendly, very professional and down to earth. Michele Chiocca and Hunt Whitehead got the job done quickly and effectively.
My case was serious and with many witnesses against me, Michele took control of the situation and got the truth out in the court room. She’s a fighter and I know that I had the very best attorney to defend me.
Hunt Whitehead and Michele Chiocca recently settled a case for $285,000.00 for a woman who sustained a torn rotator cuff as a result of the automobile accident.
Hunt Whitehead was able to obtain a $500,000 settlement at mediation for a client who sustained a neck injury when she was t-boned on Route 10 in Chesterfield County.
Mr. Whitehead was able to obtain a confidential settlement for the family of man who was killed when his tow truck was run off the road by a police officer passing by.
Hunt Whitehead represented a 12-year-old girl regarding her father being killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. Mr. Whitehead was able to obtain an award of just over $1,000,000 for his daughter and his mother.
Michele Chiocca was able to get a judge in Chesterfield County to dismiss three charges against a teacher for allegedly assaulting a student on March 12, 2009. The charges were dismissed and eventually expunged so that the teacher was able to teach again.
Since even before we started Whitehead & Chiocca more than 15 years ago, we've been committed to finding and defending the truth. After 9/11, when family members of victims needed representation in court, Mr. Whitehead's prerogative was to listen to their stories.
Their experiences were bits of truth that needed the light of day not only in the name of justice but also for posterity. Whenever we open the truth to the public, we are making a difference.
Ms. Chiocca feels the same drive to make a difference when privately representing teachers after a terrible misunderstanding at school threatens to upend their lives. You’ll see we fight passionately for our clients.
If the truth goes unheard, it gets buried and becomes more difficult to uncover. We feel a duty to uncover it — it's our way of improving the community. We raise awareness of safety measures and combat injustice, especially if you've suffered an injury in a car accident and need to be heard. Come to our office and tell us your story.
