MARTINSBURG -- For a number of years, members of the law firm of Martin & Seibert have been acknowledged in national publications and have received much individual recognition.
This year, Clarence E. Martin III, Walter M. Jones III, E. Kay Fuller and Susan R. Snowden again have been selected for inclusion in the publication of Super Lawyers, a national magazine that honors outstanding attorneys in each state who have been nominated by their peers, and have reached a high degree of professional achievement.
Martin and Jones were recognized for their accomplishments in the defense of mass torts and class actions. Both attorneys have over thirty years of legal experience and have been involved in some of the largest state and national cases involving insurance, financial products, pollution, and consumer fraud.

She is currently working on an appeal to the United States Supreme Court on a privacy issue that will have national implications for companies that store electronic data. Mrs. Snowden was selected to be included in a specialty publication for her accomplishments in employment litigation. She has published and spoken nationally to industry leaders on employment-related issues.
Michael M. Stevens, a new shareholder with the firm and a member of the Litigation Department, was, for the second time, named by West Virginia Super Lawyers and Rising Stars as one of the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state.
