My History

My father was an attorney for 30 years, and I grew up knowing I wanted to do the same thing. I graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in mechanical engineering and gravitated toward an area of law that would put my background to work.


Prior to law school, opening my firm, The Law Office of James M. Barber, I gained an in-depth understanding of the physics and dynamics of collisions by doing accident reconstruction work. During the summers, while still in engineering school, I worked for a coal company doing underground surveying, and worked for a large chemical company in vessel design.  These experiences proved invaluable in handling personal injury cases.

I am proud of being a trial lawyer. Big business and the insurance industry have tried to make trial lawyers out to be the bad guys. I fight for the little guy, often against long odds.  Whether you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, mining accident, or because of a defective product, you need someone who will not be intimidated by the other side.

Schedule an appointment with my office in Charleston, West Virginia, and let me represent you in your case today.
