Why Choose LawMD

We understand your injuries, because we’ve likely treated them.

Most of our physician-attorneys are either current or past treating doctors in, collectively, a wide range of medical specialties. There is a good chance one or more of our physician attorneys have actually treated medical conditions similar to the ones from which you or your loved one now suffers. That translates into care and understanding as your Counselors, and know-how as your Advocates.

I totally recommend The Firm in Washington, DC. I was at first very hesitant to involve any lawyers in my accident claim, as I thought it would increase the cost of car insurance. However, after struggling to have a response from the other party’s Insurance company, I was totally relieved to have a recommendation from a friend and colleague for a highly capable legal team. They took over the case, explaining the process as it moved along. Both Attorney Rich and his associate Mr. Krute were very professional and my compensation was more than I expected! Thank you again!

Getting into an accident is not a fun experience. Having to go through the process of healing and dealing with insurance, doctors and lawyers can be over whelming. I recently was injured in an accident with a major transportation company. Mr. Rich from The Rich Injury Firm was extremely attentive to my case. Not only was he flexible with meeting times since I have a full-time job with little time off, but he was efficient with my time. He cared about my whole wellbeing; making sure that I was okay mentally not just physically from my accident. Mr. Rich made it clear that he did not want to have me taken advantage of by the other company. While money cannot fix the PTSD from an accident it can take the stress from worrying about bills away. Mr. Rich made sure that I would not have to stress over my settlement. He made sure that I was heard and compensated fairly. I am happy to have been represented by someone who kept his word to roll up his sleeves and fight for my case.

Attorney Archie Rich II and his staff are amazing professionals. Following two major accidents, I received invaluable counsel and assistance from The Rich Firm claims and eventual settlement on both cases.
Attorney Rich was very professional, honest and straightforward. He showed personal interest, patiently answered all questions and addressed all of my concerns throughout the process, which he made easy, taking the weight off my shoulders.
I would recommend anybody go to The Rich Firm if you are looking for an attorney with a five star rating for communication, ability, responsiveness, quality of service and value for money.
