Kathleen M. Logan graduated from the West Virginia University School of Law in 1982, after having obtained her undergraduate and Master’s degrees from the University of Pittsburgh. She worked her own way through school, while also being the mother of two children, both of whom are now trial attorneys themselves.

In 1983, Kathleen Logan opened her office for the private practice of law in Morgantown, West Virginia. In 1984, she began to work with James Logan, and their working relationship ultimately lead to Kathleen and Jim forming Logan & Logan in 1986, following their marriage in 1985. Since 1985, she has devoted her practice 100% to concentrating on employment law, representing and counseling both employees and employers with employment related issues, litigation and alternative resolution of employment disputes. She has vast experience representing clients in federal court proceedings in the Western District of Pennsylvania, and in Pennsylvania state courts, as well as at the anti-discrimination agency level.

Ms. Logan’s practice specializes in representing and counseling executives, managers and professionals, as well as small businesses with the following: breach of contract; employment discrimination; sexual harassment; wrongful discharge; Family and Medical Leave Act; unemployment compensation; general human resource matters; drafting employment contracts and handling non-compete issues. She has worked as co-counsel with James Logan in nearly all of their cases.

In the mid 1990’s, she was selected to serve on the initial Employment Law panel of the American Arbitration Association for Western Pennsylvania, being one of the first women to be so honored. She is also a member of the Commercial panel of the American Arbitration Association, and has served as an arbitrator in many arbitration hearings. Since 1986, she has been a permanent arbitrator in the Arbitration Division of the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas. She has decided a number of arbitration cases, and also serves as a mediator for employment cases, and is President and CEO of Employment Law Mediation Services.

She is a member of the bars not only of Pennsylvania, but also of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia, and the Supreme Court of South Carolina.
