Attorney Forbes has been practicing law in Hampton Roads since 1982. He specializes in working with plaintiffs- usually representing injured clients in personal injury suits and workers’ compensation claims- but he has substantial criminal defense experience as well.
Mr. Forbes recognizes that the collective wisdom of a jury is much wiser than any one mind, and he has relied on that collective wisdom time and time again to protect his clients' rights, liberties and livelihood against unfair treatment.
Mr. Forbes has secured a jury verdict in excess of $2 million, including punitive damages, for a local high school coach in a defamation of character suit. He has also obtained jury verdicts & settlements of over $100,000 in auto accident cases where there was little to no property damage, but the clients were still badly injured on numerous occasions. Lastly, he has also secured Workers’ Compensation settlements in the millions for workers permanently injured on the job.
