With the firm since 2010, Caleb brings enthusiasm and creativity to a broad array of corporate and health law topics, including mergers and acquisitions, governance, employment law, restaurant/brewery and retail issues, and healthcare regulatory compliance.

What can his clients expect? “Dedication to the highest quality work and an emphasis on individual solutions.” An accomplished writer, Caleb often counsels his business clients on a multitude of general legal issues and advises clients on healthcare regulatory compliance, certificates of need, privacy and security and other health law issues. Listening, assessing and providing strategic insight are the hallmarks of Caleb’s practice.

Outside of the office, Caleb enjoys volunteering in the Kanawha Valley and trail running, hiking, biking, and snowboarding with his wife and daughter in the mountains of West Virginia.
