I am a Martinsburg trial attorney and the founding partner of Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson. As a group, we have been serving people injured due to the negligence of others in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia for almost 120 years combined, making those responsible for injuring others accept that responsibility. We represent those hurt and the families of people killed in all types of automobile collisions, trucking accidents, and motorcycle wrecks, as well as other cases resulting in wrongful death and injury, including medical malpractice, and dog bites, forcing those at fault–and their insurance companies–to pay. A native West Virginian, I attended West Virginia University and was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology in 1976, and received my law degree (J.D.) in 1979. While at WVU, I was elected Vice-President of the Student Body (1975-76) and in law school was a member of Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity. I have spent my legal career representing people against corporations and insurance companies, making sure that those responsible for causing injuries and deaths accept that responsibility and pay what is fair to those who were injured. In my 37 years of practice, I have tried dozens of cases to verdict, and have recovered tens of millions of dollars for my clients. In addition, I have been involved in over 30 appellate cases, arguing cases before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals over 50 times, resulting in 22 printed opinions.
