The Elder & Watkins philosophy is grounded in the small town ideals and values that have informed Gary Elder and David Watkins throughout their lives in Southside Virginia. They recognize the diversity of people, thoughts, and needs that are the fabric of our communities. Meeting those needs requires taking the time to listen and understand fully each client’s individual situation. Just as the client’s needs are one of a kind, the solutions are as well. It requires insight and creativity to match the solution to the situation, which is exactly the Elder & Watkins approach. Elder & Watkins believe that long-term relationships with their clients will aid in providing them with the best legal counsel over the years. The importance of longstanding connections not only applies to individual clients but to the community as well. The desire of the Elder & Watkins Law Practice is to make continued investments in the communities in which they serve.
