He has litigation experience including the defense of catastrophic accident cases, product liability cases, employment discrimination and harassment cases, and exposure cases involving dust, asbestos, silica and chemicals. 

His work in the mining industry follows in the footsteps of his late grandfather, Robert G. Kelly, a nationally recognized lawyer and founder of Jackson, Kelly, Holt & O'Farrell.

He is a member of Charleston Rotary, Defense Trial Counsel of West Virginia, the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation, West Virginia Coal Association and Friends of Coal.
