West Virginia Local Counsel Mediating Certainty©

With decades of experience, Keith Jones is available to serve as local West Virginia counsel.

Solving Problems, Reducing Risk
focusing on litigation and on mediating litigated cases - routine or complex

West Virginia Local Counsel:  If you are an out-of-state lawyer or law firm looking for local counsel to effectively serve you and your client, you should consider contacting Keith Jones at the Jones Law Group, PLLC.  He has the knowledge and experience needed to provide you and your client with valuable understanding and insight into the local rules and practices of the West Virginia state and federal courts, including the United States District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of West Virginia.  In addition to working hard to develop his legal acumen, Keith has also invested in the technology needed to effectively work with larger firms, including the investment in sophisticated case management and billing software that allows him to satisfy the LEDES billing requirements of direct representation corporate clients.

West Virginia Conflict Counsel: If one of your longstanding clients is involved in a dispute or a litigated action which requires your disqualification as counsel due to a recognized conflict of interest, Charleston attorney Keith Jones presents another viable alternative for representation that your client should consider.  As a small firm lawyer, with big firm experience, Keith appreciates the referral of discrete, severable matters, and is careful to accept referrals only after consultation with the potential client concerning the factual and legal issues of that particular case.  If an attorney-client relationship is established, it will be done so with the understanding that it is for the limited engagement and purpose of representing the client in that dispute or action only. 

Referral Counsel/Co-Counsel: Keith Jones is pleased to accept referrals from other West Virginia attorneys who may have limited experience in a certain practice area, or who may lack the time and resources needed in a particular case.  In the past, Keith has accepted referrals in such practice areas as first party insurance bad faith and employment law matters.  In accordance with the West Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct, with the informed consent of the client, the Jones Law Group, PLLC pays referral fees on contingency fee cases, and regularly keeps referring counsel informed of the case status. In other instances, Keith has worked as co-counsel when another attorney seeks assistance because of substantive issues, or because the magnitude of the case requires additional counsel to effectively prosecute or defend on the client's behalf. 

West Virginia Mediator:  As reflected by the AV Preeminent Rating® bestowed upon him by his peers through the Martindale-Hubbell® certification procedures, Keith is not only respected as a litigator, but he has also been sought out by his peers to serve as a mediator to resolve litigated cases.  To learn more about Charleston, West Virginia Mediation Attorney, Keith Jones, click here - Mediating Certainty
