About Brewster Rawls

With over 35 years of experience exclusively as a litigation attorney, Brewster is among the most experienced medical malpractice lawyers anywhere. For 25 years, he was a premier medical malpractice defense lawyer in Virginia. He tried well over 100 medical malpractice jury trials all over the state. Brewster has achieved—and still maintains—a level of mastery in medical malpractice litigation that few other attorneys can boast. Over the last few years, Brewster moved away from defense work and now represents plaintiffs exclusively. Doing so, he has put his extensive jury trial experience to good use, including two recent seven figure verdicts in favor of his clients. For over 20 years Brewster has also focused on representing veterans and military families in Federal Tort Claims Act cases arising out of negligent medical care provided by VA and military healthcare professionals. Under his leadership, the firm has developed nationwide prominence in handling those cases and Brewster is frequently contacted by media outlets for his opinions on related topics. Owing to Brewster’s extensive experience handling medical cases on both sides, he has a unique ability to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of almost any matter. This means that his results for his clients have been consistently impressive, including trial wins in tough cases and highly favorable settlements.

Because he grew up in a Navy family – attending eight different schools by the time he graduated from high school - Brewster has a special affinity for those who have served our country. Following college at Wake Forest University, he served as a Field Artillery officer in the Army with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) before going to law school at the University of Richmond. After working in a number of law firms, Brewster founded the firm now known as Rawls Law Group in 1996. He did so with the express intention of creating a law firm that would only do those things it could do very well. Since that time, the firm has remained true to Brewster’s founding philosophy of providing high-quality legal services, always keeping its core focus on matters involving healthcare and medicine. A long-time Richmond resident now, Brewster and his family are well-established in the area and he has served in various community and church leadership roles.
