Why Durrette, Arkema, Gerson & Gill?
We are Team-Conscious.

At Durrette, Arkema, Gerson & Gill, you won’t be billed for more experience than is required to get the job done. Overstaffing a case–particularly at the senior level–can unnecessarily increase the cost of litigation. We assess your situation at the outset and assemble the right mix of professionals needed to accomplish your goals. In some cases that means one attorney can handle your entire matter.

We are Budget-Conscious.

Our clients remain an integral part of the decision-making process every step of the way. We pride ourselves on pricing transparency when working with clients. During the course of our engagement, we will consider your input on major expenditures, and will always let you know why we perform certain tasks. We provide every client with an estimate, and are up-front in adjusting that estimate as circumstances arise.

We are Communication-Conscious.

We will keep you apprised of all significant developments as they unfold . Frankly, we’ll send you emails with attachments until you tell us to stop flooding your in-box. And the same goes for our billing. If you prefer, each bill will identify who did what, when it happened, how much time it took, and how much it cost. Our goal is to make sure you know exactly what we’re doing to help you.

We are also proud to be among U.S. News & World Report's top-ranked Richmond law firms in the following areas:
  • Commercial Litigation
  • Labor Law
