Mr. Olivio's practice areas include civil litigation, personal injury claims, workplace injury claims, employment claims, sexual harassment claims, as well as insurance dispute claims. After a decade working with insurance companies as a civil defense attorney, Michael now uses that experience to help individuals pursue their personal injury, insurance and workplace injury claims. Michael's experience working for the corporations and their insurance companies greatly assists his current clients by knowing the tactics they will face. Michael regularly represents individuals and small businesses before West Virginia's Circuit Courts, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, and the United States District Court for the Southern Districts of West Virginia.
