Fairmont, WV — On Saturday, October 15, 2016, the Marion County Family Resource Network held its annual community baby shower for expecting mothers. The young mothers heard speakers on various topics ranging from car seat safety to nutritional guides for newborn babies.

“The Community Baby shower was a very successful event,” stated Frank Jarman, executive director of the Marion County Family Resources Network. “Expectant mothers came away with valuable knowledge and resources for their babies and will be able to take home items their babies will need for the first month of their lives.” Jarman attributed the event’s success to volunteers including Toni Balenger, Leslie Donaldson, Donna Blood and Lauren Prinzo.

As part of the event, expecting mothers were provided with baby shower gifts collected from donations throughout Marion County. The Manchin Injury Law Group of Fairmont donated sixteen car seats to the event.

“Car seat safety is an important topic near and dear to my heart,” said Tim Manchin, managing partner of the law firm. “Our firm has seen the devastating consequences from the failure to properly use car seats when a newborn is involved in a car wreck.” Manchin continued, “We are so fortunate to live in this wonderful community and are happy to contribute to our children’s safety by making sure their mothers don’t have to choose between safety and other costly infant needs.”

Taylor Downs, also a partner in the law firm, commented that “before new parents can even bring a baby home, they are required to have a properly sized and installed car seat. It is vital that these mothers and babies get off to the right start.”

The Manchin Injury Law Group was originally established in 1983 and practices in the areas of personal injury litigation. The firm is committed to the Marion County community and participates in many volunteer events throughout the year.

The FRN works to coordinate and collaborate resources throughout the community to address health, safety, education, economic, social and spiritual needs of all families, while eliminating any duplication of services.

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.
