Our civil rights lawyers have expertise in the area of federal civil rights claims and state constitutional claims. This expertise enables us to aggressively and successfully defend our clients, which include the state of West Virginia as well as townships, municipalities, cities and governmental entities throughout every county within the state. With office locations in Beckley, Morgantown and Charleston, we are able to provide our clients with a cost-effective defense anywhere within the state of West Virginia.

While we enjoy an active litigation practice in defending civil rights claims, our civil rights lawyers are also proactive in their efforts to reduce claims and their associated costs through employee training. Our civil rights attorneys also work closely with our governmental clients in developing and implementing policies as well as drafting legislation and procedures in an effort to better serve our clients and the needs of their public. The proactive measures our civil rights lawyers use with our governmental clients also include law enforcement training and sexual harassment training.
