Sandra Martin Rohrstaff is an experienced injury lawyer representing people who have suffered injuries due to the carelessness of others. She refuses to help insurance companies and defend them as they are in the business of paying injured claimants as little as possible. Virginia Lawyers Weekly named her in the Influential Women in Virginia in 2009.
Her practice areas include personal injuries, wrongful deaths, injuries to children, elder neglect, dental & medical malpractice, and car accidents.
She strives to provide strong legal backing to plaintiffs against powerful insurance companies, who have the best of legal assistance. She understands that people without legal counsel do not have a chance against them and hence, tries to even the odds.

She volunteers as much as possible and has also volunteered at homeless shelters, taught English to adult immigrants, and has served for many years as guardian for indigent adults who are unable to care for themselves.
