Carmine Cann brings 65 years of experience to Flaherty. A native of Clarksburg, Carmine practiced law with his father upon graduating from West Virginia University College of Law. In 1967, their firm merged with another and became Young, Morgan and Cann. He joined Flaherty’s Clarksburg office in 2017.

Carmine served in the West Virginia Legislature for eight years as a member of the House of Delegates. Throughout government circles, he was widely known for his keen political awareness. The Charleston Gazette dubbed him “Mighty Mouse” for his accomplishments in and behind the scenes.

After choosing not to run for reelection, Carmine served the West Virginia Coal Association and West Virginia Beer Wholesalers Association as a governmental relations consultant for nearly 25 years.

Today, Carmine’s counsel is widely sought and respected, particularly in the areas of estate and business law.
