If you have been injured in an accident a great deal is at stake. You are hurt, you may or may not get better; your job is on the line if you can’t work; your medical bills will climb to levels that may bankrupt you. If you are lucky enough to survive a car accident, or other injury due to another’s negligence, it doesn’t mean that your life will remain intact.

Larry W. Lockwood, Jr. of The Hunter Law Firm was helping injured people before he was even a lawyer. While a paralegal in a very reputable personal injury firm in Roanoke, Virginia, Larry realized his personal need to be on the pointy edge of the sword of justice. So, with his wife and new daughter in tow, he packed up for William and Mary Law School. While in law school, working part time for a law firm to make ends meet, he discovered hundreds of railroad workers exposed to cleaners on the job who suffered brain injury. He went to his lawyer bosses and said “give me the tools and I will get these people justice!” and he did. Larry spent what spare time he had while finishing law school, traveling the East Coast, meeting with injured workers, their doctors, and other leading experts in their field, and many sleepless nights in the library at Eastern Virginia Medical School researching the complicated medical and toxicological issues involved in these cases. The brain injury cases were filed before Larry even had his law license, but the first one set for trial was two weeks after he did and he was lead counsel (which settled on his terms after the first day of trial.) The defendant geared up for the next, and he was lead counsel against three law firms hired by CSX only nine months after Larry graduated from law school. The result; Larry won the largest verdict in the history of the law under which the lawsuit was brought. Larry won many other verdicts, for brain, neurological and other injuries; in states along the East Coast from Ohio through Florida. He likes to say he was “like Erin Brockovich, but without the good looks and charming personality.” Larry then changed his focus from very complex toxic tort litigation involving hundreds of workers, in state and federal courts from Florida to Ohio, to a more local practice focusing on automobile and trucking accident cases, slip and fall cases, medical malpractice and other negligence personal injury cases. In this role, he has obtained millions in settlements and verdicts for his clients.

Larry was the youngest lawyer to be admitted to the select Million/Multimillion Dollar Advocates forum and has earned other awards for excellence in the legal field.

Larry handles big cases and small. Each client of Larry’s gets personal attention directly from him, and his very experienced staff. To each client he brings the same lifelong passion for justice.

Born the son of an U.S. Navy Chief, Larry spent the early years of his life on various naval bases at home and abroad. When his father retired, his family settled on a farm in Stafford County, Virginia. Larry grew up riding horses (sometimes in competitions) and helping around the farm. He attended Mary Washington College, obtaining two degrees; one in Foreign Relations, and another in Political Science. For two years Larry worked for a personal injury law firm in Roanoke, Virginia, then attended William and Mary Law School. He remarried May, 2022 to his lovely bride Vicki and together they have six adult children. Larry and Vicki live full time on a boat, and enjoy sailing, fishing, crabbing, spending time with their adult children and the quiet life living on the Chesapeake Bay provides. When he is not sailing his boat, he is doing major renovations on other boats he owns as a hobby.
