About this firm

Gentry Locke Attorneys, has been providing responsive, client-focused legal services to businesses since 1923. Our success comes from the commitment of our lawyers and staff to work as a team, enabling us to place the needs of our clients first. We make timely and efficient use of new technology in order to be available and responsive when our clients need us, and to easily communicate with referring attorneys and strategic partners. We value the trust and confidence of our clients, and we are dedicated to retaining that confidence through practical solutions and uncommon thinking. This is how we maintain deep, long-lasting professional relationships through even the most difficult issues our clients may face.

We are experienced courtroom trial attorneys who are prepared to try the cases that should be tried, but who also understand the value of alternative dispute resolution techniques. Our transactional attorneys are known for their innovative solutions to complex business matters which involve some of the largest privately-held business in the Southeastern United States as well as publicly-traded companies in Virginia.
