Liberty Counsel, Pro-Family Attorneys, Endorse the
West Virginia Marriage Protection Amendment
Because of the comprehensive and precise wording of the West Virginia Marriage Protection Amendment it is supported by renowned constitutional attorney and Founder of Liberty Counsel, Mathew D. Staver, as well as several other pro-family constitutional attorneys.
Mr. Staver and Liberty Counsel, one of the premier pro-family law firms in the nation, have been involved in virtually every legal battle for the protection of traditional marriage since 2004. Mr. Staver has argued constitutional cases in almost every state in the nation and at every level, including the United States Supreme Court.
Mr. Staver stated: “As a staunch supporter of traditional marriage and Founder of a pro-family constitutional law firm, I strongly support the West Virginia Marriage Protection Amendment. This amendment will serve to protect not only the name of marriage, but it will also protect the rights, privileges and benefits of marriage from counterfeit relationships intended to confer those benefits of marriage upon same-sex couples, too.”
