Farrell, White & Legg PLLC was established as a boutique litigation firm which specialized in high risk and complex litigation.

The original concept of a boutique litigation firm, representing a select group of clients, became unrealistic with the increasing demand for representation from new clients and the proliferation of mass litigation. West Virginia became the magnet for mass litigation, including Fen-Phen (when the firm was appointed defense liaison counsel for one of the defendant classes), hearing loss cases, and other drug product claims.

Because of its growth, the firm (or "FWL") has been able to provide representation to its clients involved in class actions and mass litigations pending in West Virginia. These experiences with the West Virginia Mass Litigation Panel, statewide class actions, and federal multi-district litigation establish FWL as the preeminent defense counsel in West Virginia for complex mass litigation.

The Firm's products liability practice is intertwined with its health care and medical malpractice defense practices. To meet the medical issues which arise, FWL is staffed with a cadre of experienced litigators and nurse paralegals who can dissect voluminous and complex medical records and identify the facts which will support both standard of care and causation defenses for our clients. Years of trying medical malpractice cases on a statewide basis has honed the medical detective skills of the FWL team.

As proud as the Firm is of its attorneys' successes in the courtroom, it is equally proud of the counseling it is able to provide its clients to keep them out of the courtroom. The cost of litigation for individuals and corporations can be far more than merely attorneys' fees and court costs. Risk management general advisory for clients is a cornerstone of FWL's practice. The Firm also assumes a proactive role educating professionals and non-professionals about evolving aspects of the law and how to navigate through the complexities of state and federal regulations. FWL attorneys regularly make presentations and publish articles on changes in the law and defense practice as part of meeting their professional responsibility to their colleagues, the courts, and clients.

    I had called this firm several weeks ago in regards to opening a case. In trying to get the process started, I was rudely interrupted by their secretary who instead of directing me to the proper department, stated, "Let me stop you right there, I cannot give you legal advise" and so on. I had to interrupt her and advise her that I called for having a case opened. Where she actually took my information or not, I am unsure, but I was never replied to by the proper department in regards.

    I worked closely with Erik on a mass tort products liability matter involving literally thousands of cases. He is an outstanding lawyer in all respects. There is no question about his ethics either. He is the real deal.
