p10101082WEST VIRGINIA MEDIATION LAWYER and WEST VIRGINIA ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION LAWYER. Mediating Certainty” is a West Virginia Mediation and alternative dispute resolution website and blog published by Keith A. Jones, an attorney, West Virginia mediator and managing member of the Jones Law Group, PLLC, a West Virginia law firm.  Please explore this site to learn about my substantive alternative dispute resolution practice areas and experiences as well as about my educational and legal background.  While its primary purpose is to provide information to lawyers and the public about mediation and news pertaining to certain substantive legal areas, the blog also covers a variety of other legal and informative topics — some newsworthy and some just for fun.

Education: Keith Jones is a 1985 graduate of the West Virginia University College of Law, where he served as a member of the West Virginia Law Review. Prior to attending law school, he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from the Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism at WVU, and obtained a Master of Business Administration Degree from the College of Business and Economics at WVU.  While working toward his MBA, Mr. Jones worked with the Vice President of Institutional Advancement at WVU to secure funding for significant capital projects at the university.

This unique educational background, combined with his professional experience and qualifications as an attorney, provides Keith with the communication skills and substantive knowledge needed to serve as an effective mediator.
