The law firm of Elder & Watkins PC opened for business in December of 2016. Attorneys Gary Elder and David Watkins are at the helm of the multi-office operation with locations in Farmville and Charlotte Court House.

The general practice firm will offer a wide range of legal services including real estate law and litigation, personal injury, criminal and traffic defense as well as estate planning and administration.

Charlotte County natives Elder and Watkins are both graduates of Hampden-Sydney College who bring experience in the legal field. In addition to their legal experience, Elder & Watkins also brings an extensive knowledge of, and deep passion for, the local community.

Elder & Watkins serves as general counsel to businesses, municipalities, and individuals who live and transact business in Southern Virginia.

“One of our central goals each day is to be responsive to the unique needs faced by each client and to attend to their issues competently, efficiently and quickly,” says Attorney David Watkins.

Attorney Gary Elder firmly believes in a comprehensive approach to providing legal services that involves getting to know individuals on a personal level and anticipating their needs

“A lot of good lawyering, I believe, is preventative medicine,” Elder says. “We don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we try to gain a more indepth understanding of the lives, backgrounds, and problems confronted by each client” he says. “We want to work with clients to take measures that will avoid their facing problems of greater complexity in the months and years ahead”.
