Situated in Huntington, West Virginia, we are a specialized team of lawyers that match and exceed performance capacity ordinarily found at a firm ten times our size.
We have the courtroom and case preparation experience that make our clients comfortable in the most complex and difficult cases. The Firm is staffed to respond to the rapidly changing conditions and challenges confronting corporate clients, insurers and professionals.
The first tenet of our Mission is quality. Quality legal service begins with the early and correct identification of the factual and legal issues. Challenging all phases of a plaintiff's case is the key to successful defense verdicts. FWL is aggressive in educating the courts and juries about our clients' duty in relation to claims of breach of duty, causation and damages.
The second tenet is efficiency. Efficient analysis of the documentary evidence, identification and recruitment of competent and persuasive expert witnesses and identification of the questions to be answered to structure a case are critical for the jury to return a defense verdict.
The third tenet is communication. Every case involves interpersonal interactions. Communication with the client is prioritized because litigation is expensive. Every client must understand both the theories of liability and the defensive strategies. Our attorneys accept the responsibility for providing frequent and effective communication by and between defense counsel, the client and, as applicable, the insurer. Communicating about risk management strategies is also integral to the assistance we provide our clients to avoid litigation in the future.
The fourth tenet is professionalism. Litigation is an adversarial process which demands that each participant respect both the process and each other. High risk, complex cases frequently evoke great emotion by plaintiffs and matching responses by defendants. Our attorneys are committed to aggressive and successful representation of our clients with the utmost professionalism and integrity.
The fifth and last tenet is experience. FWL's clients have complex needs and issues. They want the best defense because the stakes are high and the issues important. Neither the client nor an insurer can afford litigation surprises caused by inexperienced legal counsel. With Farrell, White & Legg PLLC, there are no surprises.
Farrell, White & Legg PLLC is committed to provide quality, efficiency, communication, professionalism and generations of experience in its representations, without surprises.
