Charleston Personal Injury Lawyers
West Virginia Wrongful Death Attorneys
We are "different."
We don't handle a huge volume of cases. We don't accept every type of case that arises. We don't want all those cases. We don't need to take those cases.
We limit our legal practice to personal injury claims and employment matters. Each month, we accept a limited number of these cases from hundreds of requests. Fewer cases mean that we have more time to devote to each case, which ultimately results in a better outcome.
Our lawyers directly handle each case we accept; paralegals, adjusters and assistants do not negotiate our cases with the insurance company or employers. We are not a "mill" law firm, whose attorneys rarely see a courtroom — we truly enjoy taking cases to trial in order to protect our clients' interests.
I was named " Best Lawyer in the Valley" for 2012 and numerous years prior by the Charleston Newspapers. I was also named a Super Lawyer in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 for the state of West Virginia. I feel this recognition reflects my firm's emphasis on courteous client service, high standards of professional integrity, and a commitment to maximize the value of our clients' claims. We are not out for the "quick" result. We are focused on the "best" result for our clients, not only now but in their future.
Because we take a limited number of cases, we will be straightforward with you about your case. If we don't think you have a viable personal injury or wrongful death case, we will tell you. If we don't think you need an attorney and that you would be better off handling the case on your own, we'll let you know that, too. We won't just pass you off to the next firm.
However, if your case passes our standards and we agree to handle your case, you can be assured that you will receive my personal attention. I will aggressively represent you, keep you informed about the status of your case and give you my opinion as to whether you should settle your case or take your case to trial.
I will completely explain the contingent fee agreement to you before we start working on your case. Together, as an attorney-client team, we will decide on the best tactics for your case.
