Thomas F. Basile, Esq.

I have been a civil trial lawyer for nearly 30 years, fighting for the legal rights of individuals who have suffered some type of personal or financial injury due to the fault, actions, or omissions of others.  Whether you have suffered personal injuries in an accident or have suffered financial loss and harm due to unfair treatment by an insurance adjuster, a debt collector, a government agency, or because of problems with a manufactured home or a faulty consumer product, such as a defective car or truck, I can help get you the financial recovery you deserve and advise you of your legal rights.  I can also help advise you with respect to the rights of the disabled, with wills, simple estates, and powers of attorney. If I am not a good fit for your legal needs, I can help direct you in the right direction to be sure you find a lawyer or law firm that is a good fit for your legal needs.  

My Story

I was raised in Clarksburg, where I graduated from Notre Dame High School in 1974. I then went on to receive a B.A. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame in 1978.  Following a brief career as a high school campus minister and religion teacher in Catholic high schools in Houston and San Antonio, I returned home to West Virginia and attended WVU, where I obtained my M.A. in public policy analysis in 1989 and my law degree from the WVU College of Law in 1992.  I still have a large extended family and many wonderful friends in Clarksburg, but I have been happily living and working in Charleston since 1992. I am also a member of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic community of South Charleston.


I have been happily married to my wife Jody, who was born and raised in Philadelphia, since 1981, and we have wholeheartedly enjoyed being the proud parents of 3 wonderful daughters: Joanna, Emily and Sarah.
