Former President of the West Virginia Association for Justice (West Virginia Trial Lawyers Association)

As a West Virginia native, Wes Metheney was born, raised and educated in Morgantown, Monongalia County and has been trying complex legal cases throughout the state and surrounding states since 1983. He handles civil, criminal, and domestic cases at both trial court level and appellate levels.

Wes is one of only nine lawyers in West Virginia who is Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy and Civil Pre Trial Practice Advocacy. Board Certification in these fields is provided by the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification, which is an American Bar Association accredited organization.

In 2010, Wes was selected as a member of the National Trial Lawyers Association, a national organization composed of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers from each state. Membership is obtained through special invitation and is extended only to those attorneys who exemplify superior qualifications, leadership, reputation, stature, and profile as a trial lawyer for civil plaintiffs or criminal defendants.

Since 2007, Super Lawyers has listed Wes as one of the Top 5% of the lawyers in West Virginia. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and assessment.

Wes Metheney has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© in the practice of Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs for 2015. Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For more than three decades, Best Lawyers has been regarded-by both the profession and the public-as the most credible and definitive guide to legal excellence in the united States.

Wes has also received the highest rating from Martindale Hubbell, AV Preeminent, which is a significant rating accomplishment – a testament to the fact that the lawyer’s peers and clients rate him at the highest level of professional excellence with very high ethical standards.

In 2014, after having been nominated by his peers and evaluated by its Board of Governors, the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys (NAOPIA) designated Wes as one of the TOP 10 Personal Injury Attorneys in the State of West Virginia. This designation is awarded only to those lawyers who demonstrate knowledge, skill, experience, expertise and success in the specific area of personal injury law.
