West Virginia State Bar

Created in 1947, the West Virginia State Bar is the state’s mandatory bar association. The goals of the West Virginia State Bar are to foster positive relations between the general public and West Virginia’s legal community, support a sense of community among members, improve the administration of justice, and oversee the practice of law in the state. In order to protect high standards of professional ethics, the association upholds disciplinary measures for attorneys who are found violating ethical rules.
