He opened a practice in Clarksburg, and was elected to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 1905 as a Republican. In May 1909 he was appointed as judge of the criminal court in Harrison County, serving until 1912. As of December 1909 he was, at the age of 30, the youngest judge in the state.[1] In 1912 and 1920 he was elected to eight-year terms as Circuit Court judge.[2] He resigned in 1925 to return to private practice. He was appointed to the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals on August 21, 1928, and elected on the Republican ticket to a full term in November of that year, serving until December 31, 1940. He was unsuccessful in seeking re-election in 1940 and 1944.
