About Us

Satterwhite Taddeo is a Virginia law firm which focuses on defending health care providers and product manufacturers.  Shortly after opening its doors more than a decade ago, the firm was recognized by Best Lawyers and U.S. News & World Report as a “Tier 1” firm in the Richmond, Virginia market in the field of Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants.  Proudly, the firm has continued to receive this high recognition from its peers every year since 2013.  Founding shareholder Kim Satterwhite and partner Todd Anderson are also individually listed in The Best Lawyers in America.

Every partner at Satterwhite Taddeo has tried complex cases to verdict.  The firm’s attorneys have a deep understanding of the unique challenges facing individuals and businesses defending liability claims in Virginia and nationwide, and regularly provide advice on compliance and risk management issues. The firm’s lawyers and staff have forged close relationships with members of legal, medical, industrial and manufacturing communities throughout Virginia and the nation and appreciate the unique challenges of defending clients in varying jurisdictions and venues. This broad knowledge base, coupled with a strong work ethic, has allowed Satterwhite Taddeo to conclude a majority of its cases with no payment by the defendant, either through verdict, dismissal or claim abandonment by the plaintiff. 

In an era when fewer attorneys try cases, Satterwhite Taddeo’s lawyers have obtained numerous defense verdicts following complex, multi-day (and sometimes multi-week) trials. Juries across Virginia - including Norfolk, Portsmouth, Newport News, Hampton, the City of Richmond and Prince William County - have returned verdicts in favor of Satterwhite Taddeo’s clients.  Satterwhite Taddeo has the expertise and resources to successfully defend high exposure cases, as evidenced by the firm obtaining the largest defense verdicts in medical malpractice cases identified by Virginia Lawyers Weekly in both 2015 and 2016.

Exceptional service and value are not mutually exclusive at Satterwhite Taddeo.  Personal attention to each matter is at the core of the firm’s commitment to deliver high quality legal services. At the same time, the firm is mindful of the financial and emotional toll associated with litigation.  Satterwhite Taddeo offers competitive billing rates, employs state of the art technology to provide the best defense to its clients, and staffs cases in an efficient, cost-effective manner. At Satterwhite Taddeo, we recognize the importance of each case to our clients and are mindful of the emotional and practical impacts of litigation, particularly when plaintiffs’ demands often run in the millions. Our trusted and experienced team acts quickly to identify issues and works diligently to achieve our clients’ goals, whether through pursuit of early, cost-effective resolution or defense of the case through verdict and appeal.
