Personal Injury And Auto Accidents

When you've been injured in an accident, you need a lawyer who sees you as a person and who will listen to your needs to help you negotiate what can seem like a maze in today's legal system. At the Wolfe Law Firm, we constantly strive to treat our clients with the dignity and respect they deserve.

The Wolfe Law Firm has extensive experience in the claims process and knows exactly how claims are handled by insurance companies, including Nationwide Insurance, State Farm Insurance, Geico Insurance Company, Allstate Insurance Company and a myriad of others. In addition to managing your claim, we are also prepared to file suit and proceed to trial if an insurance company treats you unfairly.

In today's tough economic environment, insurance companies are refusing to properly evaluate claims, placing corporate profits over people. Since its inception, the Wolfe Law Firm has handled hundreds of cases through the litigation process, dealing successfully with the insurance companies and their lawyers.

You need to choose a law firm with trial experience because the insurance companies know which law firms will fight and which ones will sell out their clients for profits. Sadly, few lawyers are prepared to dedicate the expense and time required to ensure that your case is prepared for trial. The Wolfe Law Firm is experienced in trying personal injury cases and will fight for you every step of the way.

Criminal Defense

Mr. Wolfe also has an extensive background in the criminal justice system. He is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and a graduate of the National Criminal Defense College of Macon, Georgia. He has attended the University of San Diego's Trial Skills Institute and the Western Trial Advocacy Institute.

The Wolfe Law Firm has had an active trial practice in the Federal Court system for more than 20 years. Mr. Wolfe has appeared and defended citizens charged by the Federal Government in all Federal Courthouses throughout the Northern District of West Virginia. He has attended numerous CJA Federal Training Seminars, including the Trial Skills Academy with Advance Federal training programs in both Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.

The Wolfe Law Firm has handled thousands of criminal cases throughout the State and Federal system, and recognizes that nothing is more intimidating than having the full force and resources of the State or Federal Government bearing down on you. If you have been wrongfully accused of a crime, you need a lawyer who will investigate your case and stand with you from the beginning until the jury returns a verdict of not guilty. At the Wolfe Law Firm, we believe that it is crucial that the constitutional rights of all citizens are upheld and protected; a right that many of our forefathers fought hard to establish.
