About Us

WE BUILD enduring relationships with our clients

We are respected for our integrity and our commitment to our communities and our exceptional results.

The attorneys at Tiano O’Dell believe that who we are is defined by how we treat our clients and their families. Building enduring relationships with our clients and achieving the best possible results for them makes us worthy as attorneys and as individuals.

We perform at our peak on every case, and we always treat our clients with dignity and respect as they move through our practice and our lives. We understand that we work for our clients and that they deserve our respect.

A referral is the highest compliment and one we don’t take for granted. We have earned that compliment time and time again.

Accomplished Trial Attorneys

Our hard work is often rewarded by the recognition of our peers. Our firm founders William Tiano and Tony O’Dell have been named as Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the American Trial Lawyers Association and have been designated West Virginia Super Lawyers.

Colleagues also ask us to share our expertise at West Virginia and national legal seminars. Both partners serve on the board of the West Virginia Association for Justice.

Doing The Right Thing, Every Time

The commitment we feel toward our clients extends to the community at large. We know that the work we do can make a difference.

As West Virginia injury attorneys, we believe everyone should be responsible for the consequences of their conduct. When carelessness and negligence wreak havoc, justice demands compensation for the injury or death that results.

Through two decades at the negotiating table and in the courtroom we have helped hold even the most powerful defendants to this standard. By doing so, we send a message that unsafe conduct by individuals and corporations must stop. The people in our communities must be kept safe. Those already hurt by wrongful conduct must be compensated for their losses and harm.

Our strong work ethic, credentials and results have earned the respect of judges, adversaries and colleagues. Jurors who have seen us litigate in court often seek our counsel. Likewise, fellow attorneys send their clients to us when a case is too complex or costly to take on.

We consistently prevail in negligence cases

Tiano O’Dell keeps abreast of rapidly changing injury case law. We rely on cutting-edge technology — including a medical database that is also used by doctors across the country — to investigate and manage our cases, such as medical malpractice. Quite simply, we have the knowledge, experience and resources to handle injury and wrongful death cases for the long haul.

However, we never lose sight of the fact that our clients want their cases handled promptly and professionally, and we are committed to resolving clients’ cases as efficiently as possible without sacrificing results.
