Areas of Practice

Experienced lawyers represent plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of legal matters

We represent West Virginians in the following issues:

  • Personal injury — If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, we will handle your personal injury claim and aim to hold the responsible party accountable so that you can receive compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. In the event that a family member dies due to another’s negligent or intentional conduct, we can help you recover damages through a wrongful death lawsuit.
  • Sexual abuse — It takes courage for victims of sexual abuse to speak about their experiences. Successful plaintiffs in sexual abuse cases can receive substantial awards of damages. We also represent clients in child sexual abuse litigation, helping them benefit from West Virginia’s extended statute of limitations for recovering compensation.
  • Medical malpractice — If a medical professional fails to uphold their duty of care and it results in an injury, we will help you pursue compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
  • Criminal Defense — Individuals charged with theft, a DUI or other crime can benefit from an experienced criminal defense attorney to help assert their rights and aim for a reduction or dismissal of charges.
  • Municipal law for government — Our team of attorneys are well-versed in assisting cities and towns with municipal law matters involving elections, land boundary changes, construction and more.

We also represent clients in contract drafting and review and other business law matters. Given our experience in several different areas, you can count on our firm’s wide breadth of knowledge.
