Mr. Webb attended Ohio Northern University, Claude W. Pettit College of Law from 1985 to 1986. During the summer of 1986 he attended the University of Notre Dame's London Law Centre in London, United Kingdom, where he studied international law. Upon returning to the United States, he was accepted to transfer to the West Virginia University College of Law where he graduated with a doctor of juris prudence degree in May of 1987.

Upon graduation, he joined the Charleston law firm of Goodwin and Goodwin, where he practiced corporate and insurance defense law, particularly in the area of class action asbestos defense litigation. During his tenure, he drafted the incorporation documents for the foundation to support the U.S.S. West Virginia, an Ohio-Class ballistic missile submarine, commissioned on October 20, 1990. Also during this time, he drafted the incorporation documents for the formation of the nonprofit corporation for the Governor's Honor's Academy on behalf of Governor Gaston Caperton who founded the Academy.

During the 1989 Legislative Session he was appointed as Committee Counsel to the Finance Committee of the West Virginia House of Delegates. Thereafter, he joined the law firm of R. Joseph Zak and Associates where he practiced primarily divorce, family law, personal injury and criminal defense.

In 1993, he was appointed as Committee Counsel for the Finance Committee in the West Virginia State Senate for the 1993 legislative session.

Suffice it to say, it would be hard for any attorney in West Virginia to assert that they have argued more cases before the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia on such a variety of issues as Mr. Webb has in such a relatively short period of practicing law. His published West Virginia Supreme Court opinions include:
