Isner Law Office
Mr. Isner represented my son in a very difficult case where he was accused and indicted on 79 counts. He worked with us for over a year through all the hearings and eventually through trial with a verdict of not guilty on all 79 counts! I highly recommend him!!!

Fantastic
I faced an extremely lofty case. When I hired Mr. Isner, I was lost, confused, and scared. Mr. Isner navigated through it all and ultimately successfully defended me against false allegations. Even though at times I felt that nothing was being done, I clearly saw at the end that he was diligently working behind the scenes. He knows when to act and exactly what needs done!

Dare I say...
Mr. Isner represented me for a Parole Hearing after having been denied for 8 consecutive years I was finally granted parole from a Life with Mercy sentence. Indirectly his presence was also more than likely the reason there was almost a 70% parole rate at that facility for that month.

Humbled and Inspired by This Man
A huge shout out for this man. He truly was an inspiration to watch work. He saw a small window of opportunity and finessed that into a win that neither of us could have expected 24 hours earlier. My disability case was a very difficult one, I knew there was a significant difference in my abilities and in my stability regarding attaining and maintaining sustaining employment. But one cannot tell by looking at me, nor is most of it [my limitations] easy to "show". On paper, I appear borderline challenged. Personally, I have an ugly history that the courts and society finds irresponsible and self-indulgent on the surface. Then there is me and my eccentric, sometimes radical, personality. Quite the challenge and yet, in the end, success. For those who wonder and worry about the minimal contact, don't. All paperwork and necessary legal actions are taken care of. There is a very professional process in this law office. Relax, trust the process. Besides, most of your time consuming questions can be answered with a basic internet search. I am not easy to "read" yet this man quickly read the situation, me, and how everything affected my gainful employment outlook and devised a simple strategy to expose all of that. Truly amazing. Feeling Blessed

He is awesome
Phil took my case and quickly made me feel at ease that what I was going through was going to be ok. Not only did he answer and return all my calls in a timely manner. he drove all the way to Charleston to deal with my case. Needless to say he did exactly what he said he would do and I am extremely satisfied with my decision to hire him. I would if I ever needed him for anything again.

Great lawyer and excellent staff!!!
We came to Isner Law last minute with only a little over a week until our court hearing. Phil and his staff are knowledgeable in many areas of the law and truly had our best interest at heart. He represented my family in a domestic case. They kept in contact via phone and email day and night putting in many long hours. They were 200% dedicated to our case for which we are thankful beyond words! So nice to find a local law firm with knowledge and heart. Thank you Isner Law!

A local law firm with heart and skill.....
I retained Phil Isner, of Isner Law Office in Elkins, WV, as our attorney for a family court case that involved contempt of a court order and custody allocation of my oldest son. Phil and his experienced staff handled my case with a level of care, compassion, respect and professionalism that was far above and beyond any of our expectations. They helped my family through one of the most challenging and emotionally trying times in our life, and for that, we can never thank them enough! My family means the world to me, and they made us their priority! We are greatful for the favorable court ruling and their superior services. My family and I would recommend them over any other law firm in town, hands down!!!

Client in Civil Suit
Phil was knowledgeable and always well prepared throughout the course of our suit which went through to trial. He particularly excels in in the courtroom as an excellent communicator who can explain the case to the jury and judge. He presented the case in a manner which was both professional and aggressive.

Excellent Attorney
Phil has successfully represented me in three cases during the past few years. He took the time to answer our questions, is very knowledgeable and provided excellent service. He is very professional with attention to detail, making him very easy to work with. Phil was always prepared, filed responses on time,and did an excellent job of representing us in a very lengthy jury trial in Circuit Court. I would highly recommend Phil to both family and friends.

Phil Isner: Outstanding Attorney
Phil Isner proved to be the perfect choice as an attorney to successfully represent me in a recent jury trial. He was referred to me by a senior attorney who did not handle this type of case. Mr. Isner's professionalism was impressive, as were his organizational skills and knowledge of the case . I found him to be honest, always fully prepared, and kept me continually informed. The quality of his communication skills with the judge, jury, witnesses, and even the opposing attorney was very impressive. He comes across as well-informed, organized, and always deliberate in oral presentations and questioning witnesses. I would not hesitate to have Phil Isner represent me or handle any future legal work.
