Written for the Virginia practitioner, Attorney Fees and Sanctions - Virginia and Federal Courts covers the procedural rules, the substantive law, and the practical approaches to maximizing petitions for attorney fees whether permitted by contract, by statute, or by rules of the court, as well as when you and/or your client are vulnerable to being sanctioned. The book also contains a brief, but important, section on attorneys being held in contempt in Virginia courts.
