Erin Jewell is a partner with Patten, Wornom, Hatten & Diamonstein, L.C.  Ms. Jewell (formerly Hieronimus) was admitted to the Virginia State Bar and joined the firm in 2005.  Since that time, she has focused her practice on representing asbestos victims.

Ms. Jewell primarily works on the asbestos trial team in preparing and trying cases to verdict in state courts.  She has also recovered workers’ compensation benefits for asbestos victims and other injured persons before the Department of Labor and the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission, under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act.


THE VIRGINIA STATE BAR RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT REQUIRE ALL ATTORNEYS TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT AND DISCLAIMER TO THEIR CASE RESULTS. SETTLEMENT AND VERDICT IN ALL CASES DEPEND ON VARIOUS FACTORS AND CIRCUMSTANCES, WHICH ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. THEREFORE, PAST RESULTS IN CASES ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION OF SIMILAR RESULTS IN FUTURE CASES WHICH PATTEN, WORNOM, HATTEN & DIAMONSTEIN, L.C. AND ITS LAWYERS MAY UNDERTAKE.


Ms. Jewell has served on trial teams involving multi-million dollar product liability verdicts, including verdicts reported as one of “Virginia’s Largest Verdicts” in 2008 and 2012.  Hugh McCormick, III and Erin Jewell successfully prosecuted King v. John Crane, Inc., a mesothelioma jury trial in November 2008, which was listed as one of “Virginia’s Largest Verdicts of 2008” by Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly.  In addition, Robert R. Hatten, F. Alex Coletrane and Erin Jewell also successfully prosecuted Bristow v. John Crane, Inc., a mesothelioma jury trial that was one of “Virginia’s Largest Verdicts of 2012.”

Ms. Jewell was recognized by Virginia Super Lawyers magazine as a “Virginia Rising Star” (top 2.5% of Virginia Attorneys 40 years or younger or in practice 10 years or less) in 2010, 2013 and 2014.

Ms. Jewell is admitted to practice in Virginia, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. She is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Virginia Trial Lawyer’s Association (VTLA), the VTLA’s Young Trial Lawyer’s Committee and the Newport News Bar Association.  She has served as the Chair of the VTLA’s Young Trial Lawyer’s Leadership Committee, and has served as a local co-chair of the Virginia Bar Association’s Legal Food Frenzy, to support the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank.
