Jill McIntyre is Of Counsel in the Litigation practice group. Jill is a skilled litigator who has handled complex toxic exposure and property contamination claims and defended lawyers faced with legal professional liability claims. She has overseen dozens of large-scale ESI collection and production projects. She practices out of the Firm’s office in Charleston, West Virginia.
Jill's experience is an asset to clients in the ever-changing age of technology. She regularly advises clients and colleagues about digital systems, retaining and discarding electronically stored information, preserving, locating, collecting and producing data, and engaging in proportional, cost-effective discovery.
Jill’s hands-on approach to her practice sets her apart from her peers. She loves to go into a workplace to see first-hand how a company operates, interviewing client constituents, strategically preparing a defense, and matching up documents to the story to be related to a judge or jury. She goes above and beyond to prepare demonstrative exhibits designed to break down complex facts for jurors. She has experience with mass action and class action lawsuits and is knowledgeable about state and federal regulatory processes relating to environmental protection.
Jill has been named a West Virginia Super Lawyer® and included in The Best Lawyers in America®, including in the 2017 Business Edition for “Women in Law.” She is a past president of Defense Trial Counsel of West Virginia and a founding member of the Appalachian Institute of Digital Evidence, a non-profit that focuses on educating students. Jill serves on the Board of Directors, the Executive Committee, and the Development Committee of Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg, West Virginia. She also serves on the Board of Fund for the Arts and helps coordinate the Fund’s outdoor jazz music festival.
Despite her penchant for technology, her hobbies are far more hands-on. If she could, she would sew, paint, and build things all day. She’s a self-diagnosed hoarder of textiles and spends her leisure time cooking, reading, gardening, and walking. But her favorite way to de-stress? Group singing . . . bring on the harmony.
