Attorney Profile

A take-charge lawyer, Chris Guedri's forceful personality compliments his formidable litigation and negotiating skills. He brings to every case his strong intellect, innate sense of practicality, and his burning desire to win. His legal achievements for clients include many courtroom victories, but he is as able to search creatively for ways to settle cases as he is to prepare and try cases that cannot be settled.  Chris was named "Lawyer of the Year" by Best Lawyers in America for 2014-2015 in the Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs category in Richmond, VA.

Chris' ability to master complex technical, scientific, and medical information has made him a strong adversary in the broad range of personal injury cases he has handled over the last 30 years. His adversaries frequently offer premium settlements rather than engage him in a courtroom battle. In 2016, Chris and partner Jason Konvicka obtained a $42 million settlement for three men who were seriously burned and the family of one man who was killed as a result of a workplace explosion. This recovery was the largest personal injury settlement in Virginia during 2016. In 2014, Chris obtained a $22 million settlement on behalf of a boy who suffered paralysis and brain injuries in a crash with a dump truck. This recovery is the largest personal injury settlement in Virginia history involving a vehicular accident according to Virginia Lawyers Weekly.

Chris' superior legal instincts and calm persistence have benefited his clients and been recognized by his colleagues. The Best Lawyers in America has included Chris on its list of best personal injury lawyers in Richmond for over 15 years. In September 2008, he was inducted as a Fellow of the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers.

Since joining Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen in 1991, Chris has focused his practice primarily on catastrophic injuries and wrongful death cases including trucking accidentsproduct liabilitybus accident cases and brain injury litigation.

Among the highlights of Chris' career are two very substantial verdicts in Virginia wrongful death cases. In 2004, the Richmond Times-Dispatch profiled Chris and described his legal expertise in an article entitled Law Firm's Gamble Paying Off Big.

Representative Clients:

  • Jeffrey,   Midlothian, VA - http://www.allenandallen.com/p-christopher-guedri-testimonials.htmlI was referred to Chris Guedri from a fellow I know who was hurt in an accident and had used Chris. He told me that Chris was definitely the guy I wanted to get in touch with. I met him in the office for our initial meeting and he was very thorough and very detailed. He wanted to know everything about my accident and how I was feeling and made me feel comfortable. In the courtroom he didn't play any games. He took my case very seriously. I was very impressed. It was a good experience for me. He gave me realistic expectations of what he thought my case was worth and delivered. Anyone I talk to in a similar situation I tell about Chris. I definitely recommend him.
  • Kyndl,   Chesterfield, VA - http://www.allenandallen.com/p-christopher-guedri-testimonials.htmlChris Guedri was referred to me by my insurance agent who told me that they had seen his work as an attorney and that he came highly recommended. I had never dealt with an attorney before and Chris was easy to talk to, kind and very supportive. His legal assistant Kendall was great to work with as well. In mediation I was very impressed. It was incredible to me the way he negotiated with the other side. If anyone I know needs an injury attorney, I would highly recommend Chris Guedri.
  • Joe,   Mechanicsville, VA - http://www.allenandallen.com/p-christopher-guedri-testimonials.htmlAfter my auto accident, the insurance company seemed to be cooperating at first. But, when it became evident that my injuries would be long term, they began to back away and became unresponsive. That's when I knew I needed help. It was important to me to have a professional team with a history of success. I chose Allen and Allen and got exactly what I needed. My attorney, Mr. Chris Guedri, and his staff made me feel comfortable that my case really was important to them. I received first class representation from the first interview right through the successful trial. I'm glad I chose Allen and Allen and would recommend them to anyone.
  • Dallas,   Richmond, VA - http://www.allenandallen.com/p-christopher-guedri-testimonials.htmlI am a tractor trailer (big truck) driver. I was involved in an accident on Interstate 295. I was the only person injured. I first contacted another law firm for legal assistance. The other law firm said I didn't have a case. My next door neighbor directed me to the Allen and Allen Law Firm. All I asked Allen and Allen to do for me was to protect my rights. Three years later I was awarded $850,000.00- $1,000,000.00 more than I had expected. Why take a chance going to another personal injury law firm to be turned away. The Allen and Allen personal injury law firm without a doubt is the best law firm in the state of Virginia. Thank you for your hard work and thank all your personnel for their kindness and respect toward me during each and every meeting. THANK YOU from my heart to your heart forever and always.
  • Bill,   Glen Allen, VA - http://www.allenandallen.com/p-christopher-guedri-testimonials.htmlI would like to thank the team of Chris Guedri and Kendall McCormick for handling my case with competence and professionalism.  With their tremendous case preparation and experience, I not only received an extremely fair settlement, but more importantly, the peace of mind that came with having been cleared of any fault in my accident.
