About Us

At the Law Office of David Schles, I provide personal representation of my clients. If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer, not a secretary or a paralegal responding for a lawyer who does not communicate directly with you. I will be personally available to keep you fully informed about all aspects of your case and involve you in all important decisions concerning your case. West Virginia does not permit lawyers to state a "specialty," but my practice is devoted to criminal defense.

David Schles, Esq.
