About Us

Potter Mariano

Local Attorneys Serving the Roanoke Valley

When you face personal legal matters, you need an attorney with specialized experience. The lawyers of Potter Mariano PLC provide focused representation in three main areas of practice:

Workers' Compensation:
We work diligently to secure the best outcome for you by analyzing complicated medical issues and identifying the long-lasting effects a workplace injury can have on your health. Our attorneys will use their extensive knowledge of Virginia workers' compensation law to protect your rights and pursue any third-party personal injury claims.

Family Law:
Our attorneys have an exceptional reputation concerning both the resolution and litigation of divorce and family law disputes. This reputation is in large part due to their thorough understanding of the financial matters and calculations involved in divorces, separations, and spousal and child support negotiations. While we are dedicated to achieving results through agreements and mediations, Potter and Mariano are prepared to litigate these cases if necessary.

Personal Injury:
Vehicle accidents, animal attacks, negligent incidents, and other personal injuries happen every day. Some of these events can be life-altering, leaving you hospitalized, paralyzed or worse. Don’t navigate your costly medical bills and intricate health insurance jargon alone. Potter and Mariano understand your rights to compensation and are fully prepared to fight on your behalf.
