Goodwin & Goodwin

We can describe ourselves that way because we believe it, and it’s what truly sets us apart from other law firms in West Virginia. Since we opened our doors in 1970, we have fought battles large and small, and we are regularly engaged to handle complex or resource-intensive representations. That attitude has created a firm culture solidly founded on customer service. In fact, we believe that our relatively small size enhances our ability to take on big challenges and to do everything necessary to meet those challenges well. It ensures that our clients are both able to work directly with our most experienced, senior attorneys, and also to take advantage of the cost-effective support of our talented associate attorneys and paralegals, who, again because of our size, are mentored and monitored closely every step of the way. Moreover, we know one another well, know one another’s talents, and hence know how best to staff each task to ensure that the client gets the team best suited to that task. In short, we are a close-knit firm that can make a big impact. Although we are constantly on the lookout for exceptional attorneys to diversify our practice areas, we will never grow just for the sake of growth. We value our firm culture, our close client relationships, and the personal development and achievements of our people too much to become a big firm just for bigness’ sake. In short, we like being the smallest big firm in West Virginia.
