3rd Annual Top Lawyers of Coastal Virginia

3rd Annual Top Lawyers of Coastal Virginia

Recognizing Local Attorneys that Raise the Bar


Most business owners would agree that whenever possible, it’s better to be proactive than reactive. The same can be said for how employers guide their teams to create and maintain fair and ethical work environments. Throughout all work situations that could arise—hiring and firing, harassment, training, wages and benefits—it’s important to have a company’s guidelines clearly stated from the beginning and enforce important practices in training to avoid dealing with potential chaotic situations later on.

In this year’s Top Lawyers coverage we focus on Labor and Employment Law. The Top Lawyer in this category, Lisa Bertini, shares how she works to unearth new ways to maneuver the law and accommodate social change in order to stick up for her clients. Another Top Lawyer in this category, Burt Whitt represents employers in harassment cases and discusses the ways in which the #MeToo movement has highlighted awareness and influenced prevention methods.

As always, our Top Lawyers list will serve as a guide for business owners. Whether you’re solving a dispute or starting a business for the very first time, there’s a plethora of outstanding attorneys ready to help you navigate the process.
