This level of support allows association boards to focus on policy and long-range planning for the community.


Chadwick Washington also has a general civil litigation practice, with attorneys experienced in insurance defense and coverage work, as well as other specialties ranging from traumatic brain injury, automobile liability, construction defects and premises liability. This department also supports the firm’s community association practice when the firm’s association clients find themselves in litigation.  The firm’s litigators have tried jury trials throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and bring substantial experience to bear on any civil litigation matter. The firm’s litigation department also accepts plaintiff personal injury claims on a case-by-case basis.

Additionally, Chadwick Washington has six attorneys who are fellows of the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL).  More than 4,000 lawyers practice community association law in the United States, yet fewer than 175 attorneys nationwide can distinguish themselves as CCAL fellows.
