Highly Recommend
Mr. Jividen has represented me in several matters over the years. I have always found him to be professional, diligent and hard-working. I have always had excellent results and would highly recommend him for your legal needs.

The attorney you want to have on your side!
I've known him for 35 years and he is the best or one of the best lawyers I've known! Other lawyers will fast talk you but mr Jividen will shoot straight with you. Got a great result in my cases and I have referred several friends to him who have been equally satisfied.

Unsatisfactory Representation
I recently hired Mr. Jividen to represent me in a criminal matter in Ohio County magistrate court. Given his reputation, I assumed that the $10,000 dollar retainer would be well worth it, but I soon found out that this was not the case. For starters, Mr. Jividen did not show up for my preliminary hearing, and gave no explanation as to why. There were two more hearings that Mr. Jividen did not show up for either, and he sent his associate who does not even practice criminal law. So that means 3 hearings and 3 no shows. I am simply stating the complete, documented, and undeniable facts. Mr. Jividen never came into the office, did not return my calls, and ignored almost all of my emails. After six month of a completely bogus felony charge sitting over my head, I finally fired Mr. Jividen for obvious mal-practice. Mr. Jividen only refunded half of my retainer and he was very reluctant to do that. I hired another attorney and he had the case dismissed in less than 3 weeks in magistrate court. There is absolutely nothing in this statement that is untrue or exaggerated in anyway.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 13
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"I endorse this lawyer. David was one of my AUSA's when I was the U.S. Attorney for the N.D. of W.Va. I have also been co-counsel with David on several case in private practice. David is outstanding trial lawyer. His ethic and integrity are beyond reproach."
Ethics and professional responsibility Attorney | May 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. In two instances, I have had the distinct honor of working with Dave Jividen----one was during the lengthy time that he served as a leader on the statewide Lawyer Disciplinary Board and the other during his outstanding service in a leadership position on a statewide philanthropic organization's Board of Directors. In both positions, Dave made wise legal decisions and provided important leadership regarding allegations of unethical conduct by lawyers and making certain that fairness and equality were made available in the administration of justice and the provision of legal services to men, women and children during their time of need. Dave is highly regarded by members of the judiciary and the legal profession. He gives expert guidance and counsel to his clients."

"I’ve known Dave Jividen for 30 years, and the quality of his representation of his clients is excellent. In our community there are many choices for injury attorneys, and Dave is known for his personal service and capabilities for complex and demanding cases."
Wrongful death Attorney | May 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I first met Dave in 1989 after taking a job with his firm. After a couple years I left his firm to take a job overseas and upon returning opened my own law firm in South Carolina. Since then Dave and I have worked on several cases together. Dave has taught me so many things about doing trial work that I cannot begin to set each of them out. He has a unique way of making complex issue of litigation understandable. I think that is the most important thing to do when trying a case. A jury cannot award what they do not understand. Along with being able to get a jury to see his point of view his grasp of the law is second to none. You will be hard pressed to find a better trial lawyer in Wheeling or the surrounding areas."
