W. Coleman Allen, Jr. - Truck Accident Attorney


Coleman Allen relishes a hard fought victory on a client’s behalf against a trucking company. With a keen intellect and a laser-like focus on the issues that are likely to play a pivotal role at trial, he examines every aspect of a tough tractor-trailer case to learn the relevant facts and then find the expert witnesses he needs to prove fault on the part of the truck driver and/or trucking company. Coleman’s exceptional ability to enhance the strengths of his own client’s case, while at the same time exposing the weaknesses of his opponent’s defense, make him a daunting adversary.

A master of trial strategy, Coleman analyzes carefully each piece of evidence likely to be introduced at the trial of a trucking case . After making a determination whether the evidence helps or hurts his client, he fights vigorously to exclude evidence damaging to his client’s claim while championing the introduction of favorable evidence. Coleman is an accomplished negotiator, and many of his best results occur after long, hard negotiations during mediation.

Service to the legal profession is important to Coleman. He has served as President of both the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and The Southern Trial Lawyers Association, organizations well known for their steadfast support of the rights of persons injured through the negligence of others.

In 2008, the Southern Trial Lawyers Association awarded Coleman its annual “Lighthouse Award”, an award given to an outstanding lawyer recognized as a teacher and mentor of young lawyers in the area of trial advocacy. Virginia Lawyers Weekly named Coleman one of the state’s Leaders in the Law 2009. Since 1995, Coleman has been listed in Best Lawyers in America , and his name appears annually in Virginia edition of the magazine Super Lawyers.
