No Lawyer? Or Just Any Lawyer?

...stop. 3. Woman swerves to the right, as, to her surprise, does the pick-up truck behind the dump truck, which strikes her in her side, forcing her over an embankment. 4.

Scumbags and the Death Penalty

...r as I know. But, he had a 9 mm. pistol, and he rammed my client’s pick up truck with his tractor. And, he enraged a fellow that shouldn’t have been enraged. 600 hours out of my life, and I am glad my client isn’t dead. His appeal to the WV Supreme Court was his trial lawyers’ incompetence.

An Article to Bookmark: Until Your World Comes Crashing Down

Have you ever been struck from the side by a New York City garbage truck going 45 mph? I have. I was the right front seat passenger, and the truck came from the right as our driver failed to see the red light on the corner. Being from WV, we always expected the light to be overhead. Strangely, as I was in the eye of the tornado, my glasses came off and landed in the foot well, and one tooth was loosened, but I was otherwise unscathed. My friends...

...silage in the silo as it came pouring in, and stacking the bales onto the truck. I learned on FB recently that Wayne has died. The comments on the funeral home’s website show he was as well liked as an adult as he was an a young man. It was an honor to be selected as the 1960 Ohio County “4-H Boy of the Year”.
