Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys

Beginning in 1968, the Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys (VADA) has worked to support the civil defense lawyers practicing in Virginia.  Consequently, membership to the Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys is open to licensed Virginian lawyers whose civil defense litigation work consists of at least one eighth of that lawyer’s overall practice.  Attorneys working as corporate counsel are also permitted to join even if they do not participate in civil litigation, so long as their work responsibilities are compatible with the promotion of civil litigation defense.
