Over the years our high profile cases have included representation of the sheriff of Jefferson County on federal civil rights charges, a major-league baseball player, former local elected officials including two magistrates accused of fraud while in office, a physician accused of first degree murder, prominent former criminal defense attorney Steven M. Askin, and local businessman John Jenkins who was acquitted of first-degree murder after founding partner Kevin D. Mills cross examined and discredited renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Henry Lee who had testified for the state.
We do not confine ourselves to representing elected officials, police officers, lawyers,doctors and professional athletes – we are committed to helping ordinary people who have been caught up in the criminal justice system.
Most of our cases are referred to us by other attorneys in West Virginia and throughout the United States. During our long and dedicated history of representing citizens accused of crime we have done our best to serve as “liberties last champion” by providing zealous attention to the rights of all our clients. Through hard work and dedication, we have tried to live up to the mantra of our friend, mentor and former NACDL President William B. Moffitt “confusion to the enemy”.
At Mills McDermott, we have over 50 years of combined legal experience and the teamwork to protect your rights at every stage of your criminal case – from the moment you become aware of an investigation through an appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States.
