Appellate Decisions

Fitzsimmons Law Firm has consistently been at the forefront in advancing and developing the laws that protect and compensate injured individuals. Many of our cases have shaped the laws of the West Virginia. Our attorneys have served as lead counsel in over 50 published appellate court decisions most of which were before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals.

In addition, the firm has developed an extensive appellate practice and is often asked to represent clients and protect their interests at the appellate level even though it did not represent them in the underlying claim.

Below is a list of our appellate decisions and some of our other recorded cases:
