A litigation boutique representing clients in Federal and State courts throughout West Virginia...

George G. Guthrie


Mr. Guthrie has been engaged in the private practice of law since his graduation from law school at Duke University in 1967. He began his practice with the firm of Spilman, Thomas, Battle & Klostermeyer, first as an associate and then as a partner, where he remained until 1991. Thereafter, Mr. Guthrie joined the predecessor to AG&T. He was elected Managing Partner during his association with both firms.

During his career, Mr. Guthrie has represented various clients, both in litigation and transactional matters. His litigation experience commenced with the successful prosecution of a habeas corpus petition filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, and successful representation of a major health care provider in what was at the time the first hospital privilege case against a private hospital in the State of West Virginia. Mr. Guthrie has been involved in various commercial litigation during his career, including claims of unfair competition and civil RICO. He has been recognized as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” and, more recently, as a “Superlawyer” in West Virginia.

At present, Mr. Guthrie’s practice primarily focuses on representation of physicians, health care entities and corporate clients. He is a former member of the West Virginia Board of Medicine and consults with hospitals and their medical staffs on health care related issues on a regular basis.
