Attorney Amy Griggs founded Tysons Trial Law in the summer of 2023. Amy celebrated 20 years of practicing in civil litigation by creating a law firm in the modern, tech-savvy, client-centered mold she envisioned because she wanted clients to feel empowered during the process.
During Amy’s first year of law school at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, she was introduced to the world of medical malpractice in the way everyone dreads. A close family member received negligent medical treatment in Virginia. Amy guided her family through the process of locating and hiring medical malpractice lawyers. After that, Amy gained personal insight into the stress and strain that litigation imposes on families.
Amy learned first-hand about the mental, physical, and financial impacts of lawsuits on families. Tysons Trial Law brings a unique perspective for clients and represents clients with empathy and skill.
After graduation, Amy worked as a medical malpractice defense lawyer in Harrisonburg, VA. Learning how insurance companies, medical teams, and risk managers approach medical malpractice litigation was an important stage in her career. Amy is better able to advise clients as a result of her time in defense work.
Since 2007, Amy Griggs has represented plaintiffs in catastrophic injury and medical malpractice cases in Virginia and Washington, DC. Amy has obtained significant settlements and verdicts for injured victims in the Washington, DC metro area. These client outcomes include a $10 million settlement in a product liability case against a car manufacturer, a $10 million settlement in a premises liability action for an injured child, and a $7.5 million settlement for a paraplegia injury in a premises liability action. Most recently, Amy obtained a settlement exceeding $1.9 million for a child in a medical malpractice case.
In 2023, Amy was named to the Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers list. Since 2022, Amy has been awarded by Best Lawyers for Personal Injury Litigation, Medical Malpractice Law, and Product Liability Litigation for Washington, DC. She has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Washington, DC Super Lawyer since 2014. She was honored by Virginia Lawyers Weekly in 2020 as an Influential Women of Law and was named to the 2021 class of “Leaders in the Law.”
Amy is the Treasurer for the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, the pre-eminent organization for Virginia litigation attorneys. She is also the State Delegate from Virginia for the American Association for Justice. Amy currently sits on the Board of Directors and serves as Secretary for the Fairfax Law Foundation. She is also a member of the District of Columbia Trial Lawyers Association, the Fairfax Bar Association, the District of Columbia Bar Association, the Virginia Bar Association, and the Women’s Bar Association of the District of Columbia.
Amy is licensed to practice in Virginia and Washington, DC. She received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado in 2000 and received her Juris Doctor at The Ohio State University of Moritz College of Law in 2003.
Amy lives in the Tysons Corner area of Fairfax County with her family. She is an active volunteer at her son’s school, serving as room parent and organizing school activities. Amy is often found on the sidelines of McLean Youth Soccer, at swim meets around Northern Virginia, and in early-morning Orangetheory classes.
