Quick Takes

SELECTED: Weirton attorney Mike Nogay has been selected for inclusion in the 2020 edition of Virginia and West Virginia Super Lawyers. This is Nogay’s sixth time to receive the honor, which is limited to only 5 percent of the state’s practicing attorneys.

Nogay was chosen in the area of personal injury medical malpractice: plaintiff. The selection process uses a patented multi-phase system including peer evaluation.

Nogay practices with his son, Max, in the Weirton law firm of Sellitti, Nogay and Nogay PLLC. He is licensed to practice law in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. His primary focus is on medical malpractice, wrongful death and serious state and federal felony cases.

Nogay received his law degree from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va., in 1983. He earned his undergraduate degree from West Virginia University, magna cum laude, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.

Nogay and his wife, Robin, have been married for 34 years and have three adult children, Dr. Jennifer Nogay, a veterinarian in Pittsburgh; attorney Edward Nogay of Charlotte and attorney Max Nogay of Carnegie.

ELIGIBLE: Self-employed and part-time workers in Ohio can now apply for unemployment through the federal stimulus package, state officials said Wednesday.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services began accepting applications on Tuesday and some payments will begin going out by the end of the week, said Kimberly Hall, the department’s director.

Many who were denied regular unemployment benefits may be eligible for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, which allows for up to 39 weeks of benefits to those who are self-employed, part-time workers or 1099 tax filers.

“We encourage anyone who believes they may be eligible to apply. Even after you return to work, you still may be eligible to receive retroactive benefits, dating from as early as Feb. 2,” Hall said.
