Someone You Can Talk To

You can be proud of the hard work you’ve done.
You’re the kind of person who’d rather be helping other people, not asking for help.

That’s why it’s so upsetting to have medical problems force you out of work. Now you’re worried about your health and paying all your bills.

The Social Security Disability Insurance program was created to help when this happens to you.

But applying is complicated.

You need someone you can talk to, someone who understands. Our mission at Cunningham Law Group is to guide you through this process with confidence and care.

Your situation is personal. And when health problems disrupt your life, you deserve personal attention.

While some law firms treat you like a case number, at Cunningham Law Group we’ll take time getting to know you and your situation.

Our approach comes from our DEEP ROOTS IN SOUTHERN VIRGINIA. We began from a commitment to help people when they need it the most in Halifax, Hopewell, Danville, Petersburg, Farmville, Lynchburg, Richmond and across our region.

We believe in staying involved in our community. If you ask around about us, we expect you’ll hear positive stories from people who found hope during difficult times.

You’ll get a level of service higher than many law firms:

  • Individual Attention

    Attorney Joel Cunningham Jr. will meet with you and get to know you personally.

  • Health Care Guidance

    If you need health insurance or affordable medical treatment, Elizabeth Cunningham, our trained health care navigator, will help you find it.

  • Video Hearing Center

    To save you travel time and stress, we worked with Social Security to create a video center in our Halifax office, so you can come here for your hearing with an administrative law judge.

  • Local Knowledge

    It can make a big difference to get a lawyer who knows the local system. We know local doctors, local Social Security offices and the local experts who might testify on your case.


When you’re hurt in a wreck, you need time to recover. The last thing you need is a fight with an insurance company.

But insurance companies protect their own interests, not yours.

They’ll have their lawyers. You need a lawyer devoted to your fight.

Attorney Joel Cunningham Jr., has been proud to help people in southern Virginia with their personal injury and wrongful death cases for more than 20 years.

Personal injury cases require aggressive action. Joel moves fast to investigate collisions, gathering statements from police and collecting all the evidence needed to make your case successful.

If you’ve been in a serious truck, car or motorcycle collision – or if you’ve lost a loved one in a wreck – CALL CUNNINGHAM LAW GROUP TODAY.


When you call us, you’ll work personally with the team members you see here. With a big, out-of-town law firm, you might not meet your lawyer until the day you have a hearing with a Social Security administrative law judge.

We take pride in meeting you face-to-face and getting to know you. We fight for your benefits – and for your dignity.

Hear From Someone Just Like You

I want to thank your entire staff for the support you all have been to me in this long and stressful time. It is finally over and a blessing to know we will be OK now.
