I used have used this firm for our estate planning and other important documents. I found that everybody in this firm is extremely professional, thorough and kind. The attorneys are knowledgeable and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this firm to anybody needing any help with their elderly parents or their own estate planning.

The Law Office of Lora Snodgrass
Lora represented my brother on a felony criminal matter and was successful in getting all of the computer evidence collected by the police excluded from the trial because it was not properly collected. She was his second attorney and came into the case after our first attorney suddenly decided he couldn't handle the case. She stood by us and fought for him the whole way and never gave up. We are enternally grateful for her hard work and dedication. She also handled a family court case to help protect the interest of a child in our family. She worked very hard to ensure the child's safety. I can't thank her enough for all she has done.

This lawyer has a definite conflict of interest in any criminal matters as her husband is a supervisor in the West Virginia State Police. Do not use her for any criminal matters because she does not divulge her conflict. She should be disbarred for this alone!

I would NOT recommend Mr. Fluharty for anything. He is worthless and all he cares about is the money he takes from you. Now if you are a woman, then he is a good lawyer for you. He will not answer his phone or call you back. I have him for my lawyer and he is representing my ex for child support from her last husband....now how can that be???? Isn't that conflict of interest???? I didn't even know he is representing her when I hired him, he told me right out of his own mouth couple months after I hired him, Everything my ex has asked for in the preliminary hearings he was on her side and wouldn't even let me go in to my own hearings. After the last preliminary hearing I was standing outside waiting for him and he walked away from me like I wasn't even there....now does that sound like something a lawyer does???

I wouldn't reccomended this firm. I had contacted several times to get estate planning done. Each time I was told that Mr. Townsend of Mr. Fluharty would get back with me. I desperately needed to get my this estate finalized. Unfortunately it was too late. I found the receptionist on the phone was very unprofessional and un-caring.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
