Huntington attorney Frances Lazell joined Jenkins Fenstermaker in 2017. As a litigation attorney in West Virginia (WV), Frances works primarily in the areas of insurance coverage and defense and employment litigation.
A Huntington native, Frances graduated from Marshall University with a bachelor of arts degree in public relations. While attending Marshall, she was a member of the Honors College and the Gamma Beta chapter of Alpha Xi Delta.
Following graduation from Marshall, Frances attended West Virginia University College of Law. She was a member of the Moot Court Board and participated in the National Health Law Moot Court Competition.

As a WV general civil defense lawyer with the firm, Frances appreciates cases that present an opportunity to analyze, research, and evaluate complex problems and work logically toward solutions. She puts her innate curiosity to good use by examining legal issues and developing creative arguments, and she enjoys reporting back to clients with well-researched, reasoned solutions. She also applies this approach to her work in insurance defense and as a WV labor and employment lawyer.
When she is not methodically pushing through challenging legal concepts, Frances spends time painting and travelling. She enjoys experiencing new cultures and taking in the architecture, design, and style of places across the United States and the world.
Steadfast organization is a priority for Frances, both at work and at home, but she also takes advantage of opportunities to relax and recharge when she is able, so that when she is working, her mind is sharp.
