Southern West Virginia Law Firm

Serving Clients in Southern West Virginia Since 1901

The law firm of File Payne Scherer & File has been providing sound advice and skilled legal representation since the turn of the 19th century. Although the firm's name has changed over the years to reflect the departure and addition of new partners, we have practiced in Beckley since the founding of the firm. Located in the Beckley Law Building since 1915, our roots in the community are well-established.

In addition to the extensive involvement in the Beckley community, our lawyers have held many leadership positions in local and state legal organizations. They have been members of the West Virginia State Bar Board of Governors as well as serving as officers in groups such as the Defense Trial Counsel of West Virginia.


We offer clients a general civil law practice and have developed an important focus on real estate law, drawing upon the knowledge and experience of partners who are also licensed brokers. We also represent individuals in matters involving personal injury, estate planning and probate. Our clients include numerous business and corporate clients, including banks, contractors and other organizations requiring commercial law services.


Throughout our long history, our firm has been committed to serving the community in which our attorneys live and practice. Our lawyers have held local government positions and provided leadership to community organizations, such as the Beckley Little League and Beckley Rotary Club. Several have helped the larger community through military service in the US Navy and Army reserves.


The numerous referrals we receive from both individuals and businesses reflect the high regard in which our firm and its lawyers are held. Our corporate clients have included coal companies, land companies, real estate brokers and agencies as well as banks such as the Bank of Raleigh.
