Joseph S. Beeson was recently named “Lawyer of the Year” for his work in Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants in Charleston, W.V. by Best Lawyers. This accolade is particularly significant because only one lawyer in each practice area in each metro area is honored with this prominent award, which is based on exhaustive peer-review assessments. Best Lawyers notes that “receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.”

Mr. Beeson, a founding member of Robinson & McElwee, has nearly 40 years of experience as an attorney, including 20 years involved in the defense of clients in asbestos cases. Mr. Beeson has also handled civil litigation cases involving mercury, lead, formaldehyde, silica, acrylamide, perchlorethylene and other toxic substances.
