How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I have a general practice firm. As a small town attorney, I have a broad practice area from personal injury cases, to property disputes, to family law matters, to criminal defense.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I believe that clients should educate themselves. I believe a more informed client keeps an attorney on their game. I believe this helps ensure that the attorney that one has hired is doing what they should be doing in any particular case.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to review documents prepared by clients; however, I don't believe that this is the proper substitute for having documents prepared right the first time by an experienced attorney.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am willing to talk with clients and inform them of what should and should not be done if they desire to represent themselves. Again, I don't believe this to be the proper substitute for having it done right the first time.

This has happened to me. A person has tried to represent himself and then came in asking if I could help correct the adverse judgment on appeal. By this time, a record has been created that may not be corrected. Remember, it's easier to do it right the first time

Robert B. Kuenzel

• 1988-1998 - West Virginia State Police (uniformed trooper and plain clothes investigator).

• 2001-2010 - Attorney for Avis, Witten & Wandling, L.C., Logan, WV. Represented clients in the following areas: civil matters involving serious personal injuries; property disputes; family law matters involving divorce, adoption, child custody and child support; and criminal defense.

As I stated, having received training as a state police trooper, I have a greater understanding of the dynamics of car crashes and truck crashes. Additionally, this training and experience also helps when I am representing persons whose liberty interests are at stake in criminal matters.

I'm not a showman. Some lawyers seem to be much about show - I call that the "look at me syndrome." I know each of my cases well and I will vigorously prosecute or defend each case. However, I don't usually make a big show because I don't' believes it's about me, it's about my clients.

Personal interests:

I am active in my church, Central United Baptist Church in Logan, West Virginia. I mostly enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and the outdoors.
