Published Opinions

One of the ways you can appreciate the depth of skill or areas of experience that a lawyer has demonstrated during his or her career is to read the published opinions of cases he or she has handled. Most cases do not result in a published opinion. However, opinions shown below are either appellate decisions by the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals or the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, or they are rulings regarding pre-trial motions filed in cases in the U.S. District Courts for the Southern or Northern Districts of West Virginia. To assist you in your search for the right attorney, we are giving you the opportunity to know about our prior reported cases, to learn of our firm's versatility, our successes (or failures) and our areas of primary expertise.
