Welcome Message

​Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Office of the Attorney General's website!

It's our hope that this site will help to better connect you with the Office. 

Whether it's looking for information about protecting yourself from the latest scam or learning how this Office is working to curb prescription drug abuse throughout the state, we hope you'll find our improved website useful.
While you're here, please make sure to visit our Consumer Protection section and sign up for our e-mail scam alerts. Also, check out our Town Hall Meetings section to see when we will be visiting your area. If you're an avid sportsman, you'll want to visit our Gun Reciprocity section to view our updated handbook on laws relating to firearms, and see which states West Virginia has full reciprocity with when it comes to carrying your concealed handgun. 

As West Virginia's chief legal officer, the Attorney General has a wide array of responsibilities and speaks for the legal interests of the state. Take some time and learn how the Attorney General's Office functions, stands for the rule of law, challenges the federal government when it exceeds its authority, and fights to treat every individual and entity the same, regardless of political affiliation or economic status. 

If you have any suggestions or ideas about how we could better serve you through our new site, please let our office know. You can e-mail us at, or call us at 304-558-2021.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Attorney General.
