Romney attorney Charlie Carl was chosen today by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin as to fill the open judgeship of the 22nd Circuit serving Hampshire, Hardy and Pendleton counties.

Carl fills the vacancy created when Tomblin appointed then-Judge Donald H. Cookman to serve as state senator for the 15th District. That position had come open when then-state Sen. Walt Helmick was sworn in as state agriculture commissioner in mid-January.

“Charlie has a wealth of legal experience as a result of his years working and managing the small Romney firm his grandfather started many years ago,” Tomblin said.

A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and Capital University Law School, Carl has served as general counsel for The Bank of Romney and is a former director of The Potomac Center, the non-profit mental health residential facility in Romney. Carl is a member of the Romney Rotary Club, president of the South Branch Valley Bar, and a director of the Bank of Romney. He has also served the community as a youth basketball coach.

Carl is married to Lisa Heishman Carl. The couple has three children and resides in Romney.

  1. I am so happy to hear this! I live in boston now married with 2 children expecting a 3rd. I met Charles carl when I lived with my birth mom Catherine bean, I was perhaps 3 years old. Most wonderful man a person could meet. He used to laugh when I told him I wanted to be a cop so I could spend more time with him,he gave me candy and let me sit at his desk.. I was placed in foster care due to neglect and he wanted to be my lawyer. He helped my new foster parents adopt me and my life was forever changed by all he did for me. he deserves this for working so hard and being such a wonderful person to the public. I am so proud of all he has accomplished!!
