Yesterday, July 18, 2013, Marion County Delegate Tim Manchin was appointed as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee by Speaker Tim Miley.  Manchin said he is eager to move into his new role as Chairman of the Committee.

“Having worked side by side with Delegate Manchin on the Judiciary Committee, I greatly value his abilities and service,” Speaker Miley said. “He has a great legal mind that is matched by an outstanding work ethic and I have tremendous confidence that the Judiciary Committee under his leadership will be extremely productive and successful.”

Delegate Manchin served as Vice Chairman of the Judiciary Committee during the 2013 regular legislative session.

“Speaker Miley and I have worked together in the legislature as friends and colleagues for ten years. I was proud to serve as his vice chairman on the judiciary committee and I am excited because I know the great job he will do in leading our legislature in the future.”  Manchin said. “I am honored at the trust and confidence he has bestowed upon me to serve as chairman of the Judiciary Committee – the most sought after position for any lawyer in the legislature is to be named chairman of the judiciary committee by the Speaker.”

The House Judiciary Committee is tasked with reviewing and recommending almost every major piece of legislation.  On serving in this new capacity, Manchin stated that, “As with every position I have held in the past, I will work tirelessly to serve the people of West Virginia and my fellow legislators.” 

Manchin was first appointed to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2003 after the passing of his uncle A. James Manchin. 

Prior to receiving this appointment, Manchin was the vice-chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, served on the House Finance Committee, was the chairman of the House Political Subdivisions Committee, and recently was chairman of the Select Committee charged with developing major legislation for Marcellus Shale regulations. 

In addition to serving in the legislature, Manchin is the managing member of the Manchin Injury Law Group located in Fairmont, West Virginia

Attorney Timothy Manchin established the Manchin Injury Law Group in 2011 after his law partner of more than 25 years became a West Virginia circuit court judge. His focus is on helping individual clients and entire families victimized by negligent acts.

  • Taylor Downs was easy to talk to (I do not speak the legal language well!) and was very upfront and honest about the entire process of my case. He kept me updated as the case progressed, and answered my relentless questions. The end result was a favorable settlement that I’m not sure could have been any better with anyone else. In short, go see Taylor if you have a case. Don’t be intimidated to go seek his help, he won’t blow your brains out with “legal speak”.


  • Being referred to Taylor was the best thing I could have asked for. Taylor and staff are very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend them to anyone.


  • If I ever have to go through it again I would definetly call Taylor right away. The group was so helpful through my situation and handled everything that needed to be done. They made a stressful situation a stress free situation. With Taylor you dont have to worry about one thing. Definietly would recomend to anyone.
