Richmond office is firm’s 16th location in the Southeast

McAngus Goudelock & Courie (MGC), a regional insurance defense firm, has opened an office in Richmond, Virginia. This is the firm’s first office in Virginia, and the 16th office location in the Southeast. Three attorneys join the firm’s new Richmond office, including workers’ compensation partner RJ Williams, litigation partner Emily Bishop and workers’ compensation associate Brian Frame.

 “With a large client base in Virginia, it made sense for us to expand into the Richmond area. RJ Williams has been with the firm since 2010, and was the ideal choice to lead our Virginia efforts,” said Jay Courie, MGC’s Managing Member. “We look forward to growing our Richmond office and serving our clients in the state of Virginia.”

RJ Williams’ practice focuses on workers’ compensation defense. He earned his Juris Doctor from Wayne State University School of Law and his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan. He has been included in the North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine since 2013 as a Rising Star.

Emily Bishop’s practice focuses on general litigation. Prior to joining MGC, she practiced civil litigation, representing individuals and companies in motor vehicle accident cases, local government and law enforcement officials and landlords and property owners. She is a member of the Virginia Bar Association, Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys, Defense Research Institute and the Henrico County Bar Association, where she has served in a number of leadership roles. Emily earned her Juris Doctor from the University of Richmond, T.C. Williams School of Law, a Masters of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University.

Brian Frame’s practice focuses on workers’ compensation. Prior to joining MGC, he focused on representing employers and carriers defending workers’ compensation claims.
