Q. How do you know this lawyer?
  • Current or Former Co-Worker/Colleague

Mr. Waterman and I worked on opposite sides of several long-term care malpractice claims. Even though we were on opposite sides, I always enjoyed working with him and respect him immensely as a legal advocate.

Q. In the cases you were involved in with this attorney, which of the following apply?
  • Opposing Client

I worked as defense counsel on many cases in which Mr. Waterman represented plaintiffs in long-term care malpractice cases.

Q. When did you work with this lawyer?
Q. Was this lawyer an effective advocate/counselor and why?

Mr. Waterman is an incredibly bright and diligent advocate for his clients. He knows the law inside and out and thinks well on his feet, both in hearings and depositions. He gets to know the facts of each case intimately and relentlessly pursues the very best outcome for his clients.

Q. Please rate this lawyer on the following:

Legal Knowledge: Excellent

Mr. Waterman knows his area of the law (personal injury/medical malpractice) better than any other attorney I know in his field.

Legal Analysis: Excellent

Mr. Waterman has practically written several areas of medical malpractice law, presenting and winning important novel issues before the Supreme Court of Virginia. In my defense work, I encountered his arguments and even entire briefs presented by other attorneys that were actually written by Mr. Waterman, as he generously lends his work to other less experienced attorneys who share his mission of protecting patients and their families.

Communication Skills: Excellent

Mr. Waterman's calm, gentle demeanor lends itself well to communicating effectively with his clients and colleagues.

Ethics and Professionalism: Excellent

Mr. Waterman is extremely professional in all his dealings and treats his clients and colleagues with fairness and respect.

I would recommend Mr. Waterman to anyone who had the need for an experienced litigator, particularly in the medical malpractice and personal injury arenas.
