HUNTINGTON -- Huddleston Bolen announced Wednesday that Jack Wise, an associate in the firm's Huntington office, was appointed district justice for District XXIV of the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity.

District XXIV encompasses most of West Virginia and Virginia. As district justice, Wise will be responsible for coordinating the activities and budgets of the law schools and alumni chapters within the district.
Wise's work is focused in commercial and transportation litigation and immigration.
