Rural Justice

On one side, 14 of America’s largest companies; on the other, a scrappy small town attorney and the sister of an opioid addict.

This is the story of a fight between rural West Virginians and the drug distributors that profited from their suffering. At the center is an unfortunately dying breed: small town lawyers.

If we want to attract new lawyers to these rural legal deserts, it’ll take a larger policy response than tax breaks and student loan relief. Do we have the stomach for what’s really needed?
