"Gary Hershner has a well-earned reputation for aggressive representation and for using creative ways to obtain maximum results for his clients.  That is why I asked Gary to represent my father in a serious car accident case."

-- Joesephy D. Morrissey, former VA State Delegate, Commonwealth's Attorney and Law Professor

Settled the case after the first day of trial for $725,000. The highest offer before trial was $250,000. The law firm of McGuire, Woods, Battle & Booth defended the action. Mr. Williams was a fiddler who had appeared regularly on Hee Haw and was injured when scaffolding at a Republican rally fell and struck him while he was performing. We claimed negligence by the volunteers for the Republican party in erecting the scaffolding.
