I am attorney Shari McPhail, and I have been practicing family law for more than 20 years. Through my law firm in Wheeling, West Virginia, I represent families who are facing difficult legal matters and major life transitions.

When I tell clients that I understand how difficult family law issues can be, I speak from experience. As a single parent, I know firsthand how hard it is to go through divorce and child custody proceedings. It is an experience that affects the entire family and changes lives forever. You can be sure that my personal experience with family law has made me a compassionate attorney who knows the importance of protecting my clients' rights.
