Aviation Law Center in Newport News

Work With An Attorney Who is Also a Pilot

Aviation legal matters require an attorney who can navigate the regulatory minefield at the federal and state level, and who is comfortable advocating for the client at an informal conference or a full-blown trial. It also helps if your aviation law attorney has some experience with aircraft.

Heath, Old & Verser, P.L.C. operates the Aviation Law Center, a division of the firm focusing exclusively on aviation matters. We represent or have represented almost every segment of the aviation community, from airports and airlines to individual pilots and mechanics. We are based in Newport News, Virginia.

Our partner, W. Hunter Old, leads the Aviation Law Center. He is a rotary-wing pilot with a commercial instrument rating who has focused his practice on aviation matters throughout Virginia for more than a decade. He is a former military pilot and also serves as a panel attorney for the Pilot Protection Services program offered by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. He is a member of the Lawyer-Pilots Bar Association, as well as the AOPA.
