Legal Division

The Legal Division provides legal assistance to the other Divisions and represents the Staff of the Commission in proceedings before the Commission and Administrative Law Judges for adjudication and resolution. The Legal Division is bound by the rules regarding ex parte contact with the Commission and the Commission's immediate Staff.

The Commission Staff is a formal party to Commission proceedings. The Legal Division works with the technical and financial analysts to review the positions of all parties to the proceedings and presents a recommendation in those proceedings to the Commission for disposition of the matter. The Commission's Legal Division represents the Staff, not individual complainants, in matters before the Commission.

As required, the Legal Division, in coordination with the General Counsel, represents the Commission in State and Federal Courts and before other State and Federal agencies including the WVIJDC, FERC and the FCC. The Legal Division is also involved in defending Commission Orders that are appealed to the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia. In addition to working on formal cases, the Legal Division assists other Divisions within the Commission to develop responses to utility customers and utility company inquiries.
