Recht Law: Serving Weirton Since 1952

For over half a century, our family has been helping families facing legal trouble in Weirton and the surrounding area, including communities in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Our founder, Arthur J. Recht, earned his law degree from West Virginia University in 1952 and immediately settled in Weirton. He opened his law office that same year and was a sole practitioner for four decades, representing thousands of people in a broad range of legal actions. Arthur's accomplishments included serving as president of the Hancock County Bar Association and lecturing before the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association.

Arthur's son and daughter, attorneys Steven M. Recht and Elisa Recht Marlin, grew up in Weirton and have deep roots in the community. Forty years after the firm's founding, Steven joined his father's law practice, and Elisa followed after earning her juris doctor in 2000. Today, Steven and Elisa carry on Arthur's legacy, making up an experienced and versatile legal team handling personal injury, criminal defense, divorce, disability and other cases.

People in Weirton and throughout the region know they can count on the Recht Law Offices to take care of their legal needs. If you or anyone in your family has been hurt, is facing charges or needs help navigating a family law matter, contact us today.
