WV Oil and Gas News: Impacts of Executive Orders on the Appalachian Oil and Gas Industry

By Allison Janine Farrell of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 04/15/2021

The oil and gas industry contributes a significant portion of the energy used in the US. Drilling in the Appalachian Basin—which includes West Virginia (WV), Pennsylvania (PA), and Ohio (OH), among other states—provides a rich source of the fuels that power our country and its economy. In turn, the oil and gas industry provides WV, PA, and OH and their residents with quality, well-compensated employment opportunities and related economic benefits. These relationships mean that developments like President Joe Biden’s recent executive orders impacting the oil and gas industry are important WV oil and gas news.

The Impact of an Intermediate Court of Appeals in WV on Workers’ Compensation Defense

By Steven K Wellman of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 04/09/2021

The West Virginia (WV) Legislature has passed a bill called the West Virginia Appellate Reorganization Act, which will establish an intermediate court of appeals in WV. Assuming that Governor Jim Justice signs the bill, and he is expected to do so, West Virginia will become the 46th state with an intermediate court of appeals, which will hear appeals from courts in civil matters and family court matters and from various administrative courts. This article, however, focuses on the ways in which the new court will impact workers’ compensation litigation in WV.

Living Will or Medical Power of Attorney: Which Do You Need?

By Anna Melissa Price of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 03/16/2021

A complete estate plan provides instructions in the event of incapacity during life as well as instructions on the distribution of the estate after death. Just as a will tells loved ones the decedent’s wishes after death, estate planning documents dealing with healthcare decisions can provide guidance during life when the decedent is unable to communicate those wishes.

The Unified Credit Annual Exam

By Anna Melissa Price of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 03/09/2021

There is a saying, “nothing can be said to be certain but death and taxes.” Getting the carpets cleaned, getting our vehicles inspected, deep cleaning the house, going for an annual physical, and filing taxes are all things to be completed annually.
