West Virginia Record: WVAJ Appoints Charleston Attorney As New President
CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Association for Justice recently named a Charleston attorney as its new president for the 2021-2022 year.
Jonathan Marshall is a partner at Bailey Glasser in its Charleston office. He said he is looking forward to serving.
"It is a true privilege to serve as president of the West Virginia Association for Justice and to be of service to the West Virginians our association members serve," Marshall said. "Along with other WVAJ attorney members, we help thousands of West Virginia residents and business owners deal with a multitude of problems including injuries, threats to their businesses and joblessness, and, simply put, financial ruin and even homelessness."
Marshall wants to make a difference for West Virginians.
"It's been the passion of my life to help to make a real difference in the lives of West Virginians and to fight for justice in our courtrooms," Marshall said.
Marshall, a Grafton native, said he also wants to focus on educating West Virginians about trial by jury protections.
"I look forward to continuing to grow and improve our association, so our talented members have the information and resources they need for their practices and their clients," Marshall said. "It's also important that we continue to educate West Virginia citizens and lawmakers about the importance of protecting our right to trial by jury and access to the state's civil justice system."
Marshall graduated from West Virginia University and WVU College of Law and has been at Bailey & Glasser since 2007. He also serves as the director of the Center for Consumer Law and Education at WVU College of Law and is the president of the West Virginia Land Trust.
"It was Judge (Allan) Moats who first influenced me to go to law school and serve the people of this state," Marshall said. "In law school, I learned about the position at Bailey Glasser from Professor Patrick McGinley. I got the job with the firm and began working with John Barrett practicing consumer law. I learned how lawyers can protect West Virginians in important and life-changing ways."
