Kelley M. Goes recently joined Jackson Kelly as a member in the firm's Charleston office. 

Prior to her job with Jackson Kelly, Goes served as state director for U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., overseeing his West Virginia offices and operations. 

She previously was the first woman to be named as West Virginia's Secretary of Commerce and also served as the executive director of the West Virginia Development Office during Manchin's tenure as governor. 

Goes' previous experience included litigating patent infringement cases for one of the world's largest energy companies. She has negotiated land and financial deals for location and expansion of businesses and mediated commercial litigation, mineral lease disputes, contract disputes and tort cases. 

When Goes represented a client in federal litigation for recovery of natural resources in the Ohio River, the U.S. Department of Justice awarded her a certificate of commendation in recognition of her advocacy in the case. Goes also has extensive experience in government relations for energy and business clients, having served at high levels in both state and federal government.

Goes joins the firm's Environmental Practice Group, where her focus will be on the energy, chemical and manufacturing sectors. 

A graduate of Vanderbilt University and a National Merit Scholar, Goes graduated from the University of Kentucky, where she was selected to the Order of the Coif and appointed to her law school's Honor Council.
