Overview

Recognition that hard work and determination provide a pathway to accomplishment is the force that continues to drive Cheryl. She is a product of the public school system in southern West Virginia, and by the time she was 14, she knew that she wanted to be a lawyer. Driven by that goal, refusing to be stopped by any obstacle, she moved forward with dogged determination. That determination is apparent in the courtroom, where she passionately speaks for her clients.

For Cheryl, every client and every case deserves the best - whether it is a relatively minor matter, or one of remarkable magnitude. She enters the courtroom only after detailed preparation. Even with more than 30 years of trial experience, she takes nothing for granted, particularly the opposition, when trying a case. She leaves no stone unturned for her clients.

Cheryl is a trial attorney and mediator whose experience includes:
