The Law Office of Jeremiah A. Denton III has represented clients throughout Virginia for more than 40 years, and we are well known for the outstanding work we’ve done on their behalf. Our Virginia Beach lawyers give you upfront, honest answers to your questions and sound advice regarding your best steps moving forward. We also bring a unique approach to each case, backed by our extensive knowledge and experience across several practice areas.

A history of success meeting various legal challenges

Our firm has a proven track record, having won multimillion-dollar judgments for our clients. Jeremiah A. Denton III has practiced law for more than 40 years, taking on and winning cases other lawyers have turned down. We offer competent representation in the following areas:

  • Whistleblower and qui tam cases — Our firm stands with workers who expose illegal activities in the workplace and protects whistleblowers against unlawful retaliation. We also prosecute qui tam cases when employees bring to light fraud against the government.
  • Personal injury — If you or a loved one was injured due to the actions or negligence of another party, you may need to seek compensation through a personal injury claim for medical costs, lost income, and emotional pain and suffering.
  • Libel, slander and defamation — If you were the victim of libel, slander or defamation, you may face serious personal, professional and financial consequences. Statements defaming you may be grounds for a lawsuit through which you can pursue compensation for damage done to your reputation, family life, career, business and well-being.
  • Sexual harassment — For more than three decades, we have fought for the rights of individuals who’ve suffered sexual harassment at work or elsewhere that resulted in pain and suffering, humiliation, emotional distress, and lost income.
  • Legal malpractice — When you work with a lawyer, you expect to be represented in the best way possible. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. We fight for the rights of individuals who have unfairly suffered due to legal malpractice by holding negligent attorneys accountable.
  • Civil litigation — There are many situations for which people need to engage in civil litigation, including family law issues, employment disputes, injury claims, and aviation and maritime accident claims. Our lawyers are skilled litigators who fight for you in the courtroom.

Our attorneys have the knowledge and skills necessary to guide you through the legal process, no matter how complicated your case may be.
