Attorney Gerald G. Lutkenhaus has over 35 years of experience representing injured and disabled workers with Virginia Workers' Compensation claims and Social Security Disability denials. When you have a workers’ compensation accident and cannot work, the process of obtaining the benefits you deserve can make a bad situation even more stressful. In a difficult time, an experienced lawyer can make a substantial difference when you need it most. For more than 35 years, I have helped clients in the Greater Richmond area overcome procedural obstacles and succeed in their Virginia Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims. My firm has the knowledge to maximize your chances whether you are filing an initial claim or seeking a reversal on appeal.
As a Virginia Workplace Injury Lawyer and Richmond Social Security Disability Attorney, I have been assisting clients with their claims and denials for over 35 years.

In 1973, I first began representing injured and disabled workers while practicing law for the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society in Richmond, Virginia. In 1978, I became the managing attorney for that agency.

In 1984, I began my own law firm, specializing in the areas of Virginia Workers' Compensation and Adult Social Security Disability. I was recognized as one of the BEST Workers' Compensation attorneys in the Central Virginia region in a survey of 2,000 lawyers in Richmond Magazine's July 1999 publication. Before various groups, I have lectured on Social Security Disability issues and Workers' Compensation topics. Since 2005, the Bar Register of Preeminent Attorneys invited me to be in their publication. Martindale-Hubbell awarded me the highest possible rating of "AV" for legal ability and ethical standards from 2010 to present.

In 1998, Rose Fauntleroy joined my firm as a litigation paralegal. She has been a tremendous asset to the firm because she knows the ins and outs of disability and work-place injuries.
