Recognition that hard work and determination provide a pathway to accomplishment is the force that continues to drive Cheryl. She is a product of the public school system in southern West Virginia, and by the time she was 14, she knew that she wanted to speak for those who could not speak for themselves. Never knowing or even seeing a lawyer, she knew she wanted to be one. That determination is apparent in the courtroom, where she passionately speaks for her clients.

For Cheryl, every client and every case deserves the best - whether it is a relatively minor matter, or one of remarkable magnitude. She enters the courtroom only after detailed preparation. Even with almost 30 years of trial experience, she takes nothing for granted, particularly the opposition, when trying a case. She leaves no stone unturned for her clients.

Cheryl is a trial attorney and certified mediator whose experience includes:

•Construction law
•Insurance defense
•Personal injury defense
•Employment litigation
•Medical malpractice

Prior to joining Nexsen Pruet, she was founding partner of the first and only female law firm on historic Broad Street in Charleston.

Cheryl is the mother of three teenagers; a college sophomore, a rising high school senior and a rising ninth grader. Cheryl stays very busy with her active children, all of whom demonstrate the same determination and compassion as she. She is also into her second year of learning to sail. She stays active in her community where she, again, enjoys speaking and taking a stand for others.
