- EXPERIENCE: Choose a firm like Joannou & Associates that has an experienced attorney and an experienced staff. Richard Roston has been practicing law for over 19-1/2 years since passing the Virginia State Bar in 1997, and he has tried a large number of cases all over Tidewater in General District Court and Circuit Court. Mr. Roston started out as a defense attorney hired by the insurance companies, so he has the advantage of knowing how the insurance company adjusters review a case. Director of Operations Sam Coco has been working with personal injury cases for over 22 years. Paralegal Laura Staylor has been working as a paralegal for 43 years, Paralegal Erica Madeira has been working as a paralegal for 14 years, and Legal Secretary Sharon Ward has been working as a legal secretary for 10 years. Experience matters, and Joannou & Associates has the experience you need.

Mr. Roston has tried or settled cases totaling millions of dollars.
- WILLING TO TRY A CASE: Choose an attorney like Richard Roston of Joannou & Associates who is willing to take your case to trial if necessary.
