Experienced attorneys taking on the insurance companies

Since 2007, our firm has been helping West Virginians hurt by the negligence of another. We know how devastating a serious injury can be for you and your family. Our car accident attorneys take on auto insurance companies that try to pay you as little as possible. We go after trucking and other companies that try to withhold evidence that proves your case.

Our clients are members of our community and we treat them like family. We never forget that our clients are real people who are facing a tough situation. That's why we don't give up until we get results for you.

We are West Virginians

All of our attorneys were born and raised in West Virginia. This is where we decided to open our firm. We choose to raise our families here. Each of us is deeply involved in the local community because we care about improving the quality of life for everyone in the area. When you need a Charleston car accident attorney, you can count on us to not only protect your rights, but also fight to make our roads and our community safer.

Active in our community

Our firm sponsors many local organizations and youth sports programs. You'll often find our lawyers and staff members volunteering in some capacity somewhere in Kanawha County. We support activities and programs that make a difference.

When a member of our community is injured as a result of negligence, we take it personally. Whether someone was hurt by a speeding driver, an irresponsible trucking company or an abusive nursing home staff member, we want to help.

Our game plan for success
We'll guide you through the legal process.

Many people aren't sure what to do next after being injured in an accident. Insurance companies aren't on your side. Right from the start, we'll go over your options and explain what needs to be done. We'll take care of the details and keep you informed.

Our commitment to you includes:
  • Obtaining and preserving evidence to prove negligence by the other party.
  • Identifying and interviewing witnesses.
  • Consulting with medical, financial and accident experts to help us prove your case.
  • Negotiating with the insurance companies and corporate lawyers.
  • Preparing the strongest case possible.
  • Fighting for you in court, if necessary.
  • Keeping you informed every step of the way.
