Client and Colleague Testimonials

There is only one Jerry Denton….nothing is too hard for him to try!


Relentless advocacy for the wholly vulnerable.

Proud to be in the same profession.


Jerry – You have made us all proud to be trial lawyers. From a lifetime of commitment to the law, you have changed the meaning of harsh Biblical verse.  From Jeremiah 11:11 (KJV): “Thus saith the LORD, Behold, 1 will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me. I will not hearken unto them.”


To Jeremiah (JAD translation) “if evil descends upon you, and it appears you cannot escape, cry unto me and 1 will harken unto you!”

Congratulations, my friend!


Please join me in Congratulating VILA Stalwart, Jeremiah Denton, who accepted a judicial request to assist a patient at a state mental hospital with his claims of mistreatment.  After a six day trial in a Section 1983 claim Jerry received a judgment of $… compensatory and punitive damages and an award of fees totaling $…. Judge Morgan of the USDCEDVA – Norfolk said that the fee award was based on Denton’s “extraordinary efforts…to locate a key witness – the assailant – and present his testimony.”

The case is Farabee v. Yaratha, Civil Action No. 2:14cvl 18 – and is well worth the read!

Way to go, Jerry! Great lawyering.


If “Dogged” isn’t Jerry’s middle name, it should be.


Congratulations on your win in the 1983 case.  It is indicative of your skill and ability.  Only you could have pulled that one off.  You are an inspiration & it’s an honor to practice with & learn from you.
