John McCuskey began his association with the firm in 1999 following his service as the 70th Justice of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia.
Born and educated in Clarksburg, West Virginia, John’s career in law was preceded by his election to the West Virginia State Legislature while still a law student at West Virginia University College of Law in 1972. Over the next ten years, until 1982, John combined a family law practice with his career in public service in his native Harrison County, West Virginia. In these endeavors he gained experience and expertise in the formulation of legislation and governmental policy as well as all areas of commercial and individual litigation.
After serving as West Virginia’s Commissioner of Finance and Administration from 1985-1988, John became a partner in the firm of Campbell Woods Bagley in Charleston. For 10 years, his trial practice concentrated on product liability and insurance defense in which he successfully represented clients in federal and state court trials throughout West Virginia.
Appointed by Governor Cecil Underwood to the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia in 1998, John authored 10 majority opinions and numerous concurrences and dissents during his year on the state’s highest court.
As a managing partner and co-founder of the firm of Shuman, McCuskey & Slicer, PLLC, John has continued his active litigation practice and serves as counsel for various commercial enterprises and as an arbitrator and expert witness in business, insurance, and professional liability cases.
John and his wife, Anne T. McCuskey, have two children, Elizabeth and J.B., both of whom are practicing law.
