Issues Ordinary People Face After The Death Of A Loved One
Robert J. Frank, is a litigation attorney helping ordinary people facing issues regarding the death of a loved one. This experience is essential in a West Virginia Supreme Court Justice.
I’m Robert J. Frank. I am a candidate for the position of Justice of the West Virginia Supreme Court. I have spent my 28-year legal career representing ordinary people facing issues regarding the death of a loved one. The experiences I have are necessary in a West Virginia Supreme Court Justice.
The people of West Virginia have lost confidence in our state’s highest court. Too often Justices and candidates to be Justices seem disconnected; their experiences very different from those of the rest of us. Too often their legal backgrounds, which may be impressive on paper, don’t seem to apply to the issues which face ordinary people. West Virginia needs Justices who have helped ordinary people overcome extraordinary legal challenges; Justices who know what ordinary people face, and who know how their decisions will impact the lives of people affected by their decisions.
Very few legal issues are more complex and emotional than those which arise as a result of the death of a loved one. West Virginia courts regularly adjudicate cases in which death was caused by a negligent party or defective product, or cases in which there is a dispute as to the disposition of an estate, or the payment of life insurance proceeds. Nearly all of us, unfortunately, will likely have some contact with the legal systems due to the death of someone we care about. Shouldn’t the Justices of the West Virginia Supreme Court have experience in such matters?
On any given day, you can look at the shelves containing my case files and see wrongful death cases, estate administration cases, and will contest cases. You will see the cases of men and women, young and old, poor and rich, each facing extraordinary crisis and the emotional impact of a death with dignity and grace. I have real experience, representing real people, facing real problems.
