Briana Cunningham Breault is an Associate practicing with the Business Law practice group, focusing primarily on transactional work. She practices out of the Firm's office in Charleston, West Virginia.

Briana earned her Juris Doctor from the West Virginia University College of Law while simultaneously earning a Master of Business Administration from the West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology, with a minor in biology, from Bethany College.

In her spare time, Briana enjoys camping, running, and attending live music events. She plays the guitar, piano, bowed psaltery, and ukulele. One wonders if her standard poodle and cat agree on which instrument they like the best. Of an interesting note, Briana has dual citizenship — United States and Ireland.
