I moved to West Virginia in 2000, after growing up in Western New York and going to school in Indiana. I practice law at the firm of Bordas & Bordas, representing people in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. I was also the Vice Chairman of the West Virginia Democratic Party. I’ve blogged on a variety of topics for my law firm for many years, but launched this site to allow a more concentrated focus on issues that go beyond the law, and touch the economic, social, and political dimensions of life in West Virginia. My wife Hilary and I live on a farm outside Wheeling, WV, with three good dogs and our two daughters.
