Shareholders Kim Satterwhite and Todd Anderson are also individually listed in The Best Lawyers in America.
Every partner at Satterwhite Taddeo has tried complex cases to verdict. Our attorneys understand the unique challenges facing individuals and businesses defending liability claims not only in Virginia but also nationwide, and regularly provide advice on compliance and risk management issues. We work to forge close relationships with members of the 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 and strong work ethic has led to Satterwhite Taddeo concluding a majority of its cases with no payment by the defendant, either through verdict, dismissal, or claim abandonment by the plaintiff.

Juries across Virginia - including Norfolk, Portsmouth, Newport News, Hampton, the City of Richmond and Prince William County - have returned verdicts in favor of our 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.
