Case Results

Every case is unique. On these pages, you will see a sampling of the hundreds of cases we have successfully resolved for our clients. We have sorted them by types or areas of law (see links below) so that you may learn about how our experience might help us help you in your specific circumstances. It is important to recognize that every case is unique. Because results obtained in specific cases rely on a variety of factors unique to each case, past case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in future cases undertaken by a lawyer or law firm.

Why are the details of some case results omitted? Some cases go to trial. Other cases settle before trial through negotiation or mediation. Sometimes, the terms of the settlement agreement require confidentiality. While this is not always in the best interest of the public, a favorable settlement is in the best interest of our clients when it provides for fair and just compensation. Resolving a lawsuit without going to court eliminates risk and is less taxing on the plaintiff. Further, a settlement is both certain and faster.  However, we prepare every case for trial and we prepare to win every case. 

How should you choose your lawyer? Choosing the right lawyer for your case should involve three things:
  • Significant experience in personal injury law, specifically in the area related to your case. 
  • A track record of success, including success at trial, as not every good lawyer is an experienced trial lawyer.
  • Your assessment after a personal consultation that you and the lawyer are a good fit and can build a trusting and responsive relationship. 
Client Reviews

Gary Mims represented me as my attorney with an issue I had last year. Working with Gary was a pleasure. He was very understanding about my situation, and it was affirming to talk to him. He had a good grasp not only of the legal issues, but the technical issues with my case. Other attorneys I had approached were less receptive because they were not familiar with my particular issue; Gary was. He was professional, empathetic, and a zealous advocate. I was very pleased with how he handled my case... Lisa Ramish

This is the ‘go to’ firm in Northern Virginia for personal injury law. They did a fabulous job for us. I would highly recommend them. They definitely went above and beyond for us with a great result. Christine Bates

Trusted advice and guidance when you need it most: Gary Mims of Sickels, Frei and Mims, provided outstanding help and guidance through a difficult, emotional and often complex process. When we first thought we might need legal assistance we reached out to several attorneys that we found on the internet and Gary stood out from all the rest: he explained the situation and process ahead in simple terms that we were able to understand...While we hope not to need legal support in the future, if we did, Gary Mims would most certainly be our first, and only, choice. 10 out of 10, thank you Colonel Jeremy Johnson
