CHARLESTON -– The law firm of Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC is pleased to announce that Nicholas P. Mooney II, a member in its Charleston office, was elected President of the Kanawha County Bar Association.
Mooney was elected by the members of the KCBA and began his one-year term as president in August. The KCBA is the local bar association and represents the more than 1,800 lawyers in Kanawha County.
"I was honored when it was announced that I would be the next President of the Kanawha County Bar Association," he stated.
Mooney has big plans when it comes to helping the KCBA grow. His goal is to increase participation in the KCBA by individual and small firm practitioners in its activities while in office.
He said traditionally lawyers from the larger firms in the county play an active role in the KCBA, but he would like to see the Association move beyond that.
"I think that getting lawyers who practice on their own or in smaller firms involved in the Association's activities will enrich the Association as a whole and foster the collegiality that we enjoy as members of the Kanawha County Bar."
Mooney joined Spilman in 2005 and his main area of practice is consumer credit and protection litigation. In the past, he has practiced in energy law and general litigation.
He received his B.A., cum laude, from Marshall University in 1993 and his J.D. from West Virginia University in 1996.
Mooney is admitted to the West Virginia State Bar, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, the United States District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of West Virginia, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.
Spilman Thomas & Battle offers a full-service legal practice with more than 125 attorneys and locations in Charleston, Morgantown and Wheeling, W.Va.; Mechanicsburg and Pittsburgh, Pa.; Winston-Salem, N.C.; and Roanoke, Va.
