Licensed to practice in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, Mr. Ocheltree understands that every case is unique. He has in-depth conversations with clients to fully grasp the ways in which their injury has affected their well-being, assessing the quantifiable and intangible losses.

He is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

To offer people the most thorough representation possible, Mr. Ocheltree is involved with a number of legal organizations through which he has access to invaluable tools and up-to-date information.
