Attorney Profile

As a source of support and advocacy for plaintiffs in West Virginia who have suffered a personal injury or are involved in employment litigation, Samuel D. Madia is devoted to helping people during some of their darkest moments. He is a founding partner of Shaffer Madia Law, where he has represented more than 225 clients.

Prior to working on behalf of those who have been wronged, Mr. Madia was on the other side of the courtroom. He defended large trucking corporations and some of the largest industrial employers in West Virginia against a number of civil suits, including wrongful death. That background enhances Mr. Madia’s ability to secure compensation for clients today, as he knows how defendants in many of these claims operate.

Adept at everything from bad faith lawsuits to workplace injuries to car accidents, Mr. Madia is prepared to negotiate or litigate a case. Many of these issues are resolved before ever going to court, as settlements often preserve a client’s time and resources. However, Mr. Madia knows that in some cases, moving to trial is the only way to ensure a client receives justice. He is admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4rth Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

His aggressive nature and results-oriented representation are the reasons Mr. Madia is so successful. He has been listed in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40.

Mr. Madia holds a Bachelor of Science in economics from West Virginia University and a Juris Doctor from the West Virginia University College of Law.
