Spencer C. Murchison


Spencer is an Associate in our Richmond, Virginia office.  His practice is focused on representing employers and insurance carriers in the defense of workers’ compensation claims in Virginia.  Spencer is a graduate of the University of Richmond and the American University Washington College of Law.

Spencer’s interest in workers’ compensation law began when he worked as a Litigation Paralegal for five years prior to enrolling in law school.  While in law school, he gained practical experience in advocacy at the Disability Rights Law Clinic, where he represented parents seeking special education for their children under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Before joining Ford Richardson, Spencer gained knowledge of the judicial system through a summer internship with The Honorable Anita D. Filson at the Rockbridge County Circuit Court in Lexington, VA.  He gained additional litigation experience as a Summer Associate at Ford Richardson following his second year of law school.
