For more than three decades, Best Lawyers has been regarded-by both the profession and the public-as the most credible and definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because no fee or purchase is required, being listed in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.

Additionally, Jones was named the Best Lawyers' 2015 Morgantown Insurance Law "Lawyer of the Year." Only a single lawyer in each practice area in each community is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year" making this accolade particularly significant.

"This recognition from Best Lawyers is particularly an honor for the firm because it is based on client and peer review, the additional honor of Mr. Jones being identified as 'Lawyer of the Year'  is equally exciting and very much deserved."
