Aggressive, Effective Attorneys For You And Your Family
It is crucial, when you need legal help, to find an attorney with an established reputation for handling tough situations.
The Scales Law Office is committed to providing such legal services. Our firm focuses on family law and criminal law, and we also place a special emphasis on our personal injury practice. Most of our clients come from the five counties of Eastern West Virginia, yet we have provided local counsel to numerous visitors to the region who have found themselves in unexpected legal trouble.
The Scales Law Office will make sure your case is thoroughly researched and professionally handled.
The Immediate Help You Need
A criminal charge can change the course of your life. The West Virginia court system is not lenient, and individuals face steep fines and imprisonment even for relatively minor infractions. Moreover, a conviction will result in the establishment of a criminal record — making it difficult to find or keep suitable employment.
Our firm offers assertive representation for individuals facing criminal allegations. We investigate every aspect of a charge, and know how to identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We understand what’s at stake, and work hard to protect our clients’ reputations, their interests, and their rights.
Legal Support In Family Disputes
When there’s conflict in the family, the situation can become unmanageable fast. Often it is important to speak with an attorney during sensitive family situations.
It doesn’t matter if you are in the process of divorce or need help concerning domestic violence charges; at the Scales Law Office, we understand the importance of having a strong ally who can look at the matter objectively. This no-nonsense approach is one of the values of our firm.
Experienced, Local And Engaged
Our firm has strong local ties to the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia — we are actively involved in making the community a better place. Yet we practice throughout the region; clients come to us from throughout Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral and Grant Counties, often referred to us by individuals whom we have helped.
