Tim Manchin was born in Farmington, West Virginia, and grew up in Bridgeport. Tim was strongly influenced at an early age by his deceased father, Joseph Manchin Jr., a well-known physical therapist who treated thousands of athletes and disabled persons without regard to their ability to pay. He attended West Virginia University where he graduated from the WVU College of Law in 1980. Tim 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.

Over the decades, Timothy Manchin has earned a reputation for passion and dedication toward injured North Central West Virginia residents. He also has a track record of success maximizing compensation and holding accountable those parties that put the safety and the well-being of others second.

In addition to his successful legal career, Tim had distinguished career as a delegate and public servant of Marion County, beginning in 2003 through the end of 2016. He was appointed to the Rules Committee, House Finance Committee, Senior Services, Roads and Transportation, Banking and Insurance, Small Business Development, Chairman of Political Subdivision, and eventually became chairman of the powerful Judiciary Committee. Tim also was chosen to chair the Select Committee on Marcellus Drilling which produced the first law providing for the regulation and protection from Marcellus drilling activities. He was known among his peers as a tireless worker at the capital, frequently arriving before the other delegates and leaving long after their departure.
