About the Firm

Our firm was founded in 1980, and since that date has been actively involved in insurance defense, civil litigation and resolving employment and business-related disputes. We have been able to grow due to service to the community and a commitment by our attorneys in providing quality legal services at competitive rates. We have maintained the highest Martindale-Hubbell rating (AV), and our firm is included in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, "The Best Lawyers in America", "The Washington D.C. Best Lawyers", and Virginia and D.C. "Super Lawyers." We are trial attorneys who prepare for litigation but who also consider alternative methods of dispute resolution if more favorable to our clients.  Litigation is sometimes necessary, but should be avoided if there are more feasible and economical options. Our firm focuses upon the needs of the client, and efficient and effective dispute resolution. We are responsive to those needs, and are committed to the development of successful attorney-client relationships based upon mutual trust and respect.

Why choose us? Because we care and results matter. Our firm has been able to grow, and serve the needs of clients for many years by obtaining good results. Our best testimonial is our work product. Our clients include, and have included individuals, businesses, national corporation, local governments and professional sports franchises. Many of our clients are well known, but these facts are not disclosed without the permission of the client. Our practice areas include state and federal tort litigation, mediation and arbitration of personal injury, Workers’ Compensation, medical and legal malpractice, insurance defense, insurance coverage, employment law, construction and business litigation. The litigation experience encompasses federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels.


McGavin, Boyce, Bardot, Thorsen, and Katz, P.C., handles civil and business litigation defense, insurance law and defense, government and municipal law, and workers' compensation, cases throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, Maryland, and in the District of Columbia and DUI/traffic defense cases in Virginia.
