A native of southwest Virginia, Attorney Brad Austin has been practicing Federal Black Lung law with Wolfe Williams & Austin since 2013. In that time, he has handled thousands of cases before the District Director of the Department of Labor, Office of Administrative Law Judges, Benefits Review Board, United States Courts of Appeals for the 4th, 6th, 9th and 10th Circuits, and before the United States Supreme Court. Brad attended undergraduate school at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise where he majored in History and minored in Political Science and English. While there, he earned recognition on the Dean’s List, as a scholar-athlete baseball player, and as an Academic All-American. Brad then attended the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia where he was on the Dean’s List and won the 2013 Opening Statement Competition. As an attorney, he believes his greatest strength lies in his ability to connect with clients while fighting coal companies who would deny them their benefits.

He currently resides in Norton with his wife and three children, just a quarter mile from the law firm. In his spare time, Brad enjoys hunting, fishing, sports, and spending time with family. His love of fishing helped inspire the Coal Miners Open Bass Fishing Tournament, an annual tournament WW&R hosts to honor coal miners who share in Brad’s love of the great outdoors.

Brad not only grew up in coal country but comes from a family of coal miners, so is deeply motivated by personal experience. He witnessed his grandfather’s passing from complicated coal workers’ pneumoconiosis, or black lung disease, from more than 20 years working as an underground miner. Brad feels honored to use his law degree to help the working folks and struggling mining families get the benefits they desperately need and so richly deserve.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
