Tony ODell has 20 years of experience helping his clients navigate through some of the toughest times in their lives. He has handled multi-million dollar cases in the area of automobile accidents, medical malpractice, personal injury, wrongful death, nursing home, insurance bad faith and trucking accidents. Tony prides himself on providing diligent and aggressive representation to his clients, while at the same time ensuring that he is responsive to his clients needs and questions. Many clients continue to call him well after their case is resolved for advice and just to stay in touch. It is for this very reason that many of Tonys clients and former clients refer their friends and family to him for help. In addition, because of his reputation and experience, other attorneys routinely refer Tony cases that are too complicated or expensive for them to handle on their own.
Tony is an accomplished trial attorney, which is important if a trial is necessary to obtain justice for his clients. However, when you have an accomplished trial attorney on your side, it can make it easier to get your case resolved promptly by settlement without a trial. Tony believes that the civil justice system is in place not only to bring justice to those who have been wrongfully hurt or killed, but also to help make our West Virginia communities safer. When we hold wrongdoers responsible for their actions, the community is safer for everyone and that is an important reason why our civil justice system is in place. For example, it is very common for clients to say I want to make sure this doesnt happen to someone else. Helping protect our communities makes Tony extremely proud of what he does.
