I have been practicing law for nearly 20 years. During that time I worked for large corporate defense law firms, as well as having been a partner in smaller personal injury law firms. The Miley Legal Group was established in 2006 and is singularly focused on helping clients receive compensation for serious injury or death caused by somebody else's negligence.
We lead clients through the legal maze so they can worry about healing instead of what is going to happen next. We have an aggressive firm committed to providing excellent legal services while keeping clients informed on the status of their case. We focus on our clients' needs, their legal rights and the most effective legal strategy possible.
Car Accidents/Wrongful Death Claim: After drinking alcohol all day in the parking lot of a convenience store, a drunk driver entered the interstate by going northbound in the southbound lanes. The drunk driver collided head-on with another vehicle causing multiple deaths. Our client, the mother of two small children killed in the accident, received over $4 million in settlement.
Truck Wreck: A cement truck was delivering a load to a construction site on I-79, was not paying attention to the traffic pattern, didn't see the stopped cars ahead, and was operating a truck with bad brakes and which was overloaded. The truck skid 104 feet 10 inches uphill rear-ending one vehicle, causing a chain reaction of accidents. Our clients settled for a combined total of $1.75 million.
Yes, and for however long it takes. We are thorough and dedicated to anyone that walks in our door but we cannot accept all cases.
We provide a free case evaluation. Our services are paid on a contingent fee basis. If we accept your case, we receive our compensation from what we recover for you.

I wanted the focus of my practice to be specific so we would not be distracted by trying to master several different fields of law. I chose personal injury because of the passion I feel in protecting the rights of injured victims.
The Miley Legal Group's clients are the types that want to educate themselves and we provide them with as many tools to help as we can. They have a lot of questions regarding the legal process and typically have never found themselves in circumstances like these before. We provide information in all formats: website, hand-outs, books, and videos. We take the concerns of our clients very seriously and want to make sure their questions are answered.
We offer a free case evaluation but, because of legal ramifications, will only give legal advice to Miley Legal Group clients.
We do not coach clients because of legal ramifications but if they choose to represent themselves (and there are times we encourage victims to try to do that) we will provide them with all of the information that we can, including our free book, links to useful websites, etc.
I began my legal career as a defense attorney. After experiencing and seeing first hand the tricks insurance companies played on their clients, I realized I was on the wrong side. I quit that field and will only work for individuals that have been injured or killed through no fault of their own.
After graduating law school, I worked as a defense lawyer. After experiencing some of the tactics used by insurance companies, I realized my passion was on the side of the victims. I gained firsthand knowledge and experience that serves my clients well. I know the tricks the insurance companies use and I will not let them get away with it on my clients.
My strength is my dedication to stay on the cutting edge of education and technology. I value new and improved ways to help our clients and to pursue all training possible so we can provide the highest quality of service available.Personal interests:
I have been honored by being elected to the West Virginia House of Delegates. I represent the 41st District and serve as the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Having the firm, serving in the legislature, and spending time with my wife and stepdaughter, keeps me pretty busy.
