Citizen’s Spotlight: Keith Gould

Miley Legal Group

Have you ever known people who are “workaholics?”  They often spend hours at the office hoping to get ahead, but usually sacrifice their family in the process.  One person who has always found a way to balance his work and home life is Keith Gould.

After graduating from WVU College of Law in 1996, Keith married his college sweetheart, Bridgeport native Tracy Strother, and began his legal career for a small local law firm where he worked for 3 years.  Keith began to feel the need to spread his wings a little more and decided to commute to work for the next 8 years at a medium-sized law firm located in Weston, WV.  While working in Weston, two wonderful additions were made to the Gould family:  his children, Mackenzie, 6, and Jack, 3.

Growing weary from the drive up and down Interstate 79, Keith longed to work closer to home so he could spend more time with his family.  In 2007, Keith finally got the urge to “come home” and began employment at The Miley Legal Group on July 1, 2007.  “Keith Gould has been a wonderful addition to The MLG and has served the clients of the firm well,” said Tim Miley, owner of firm. “Keith has always been willing to put the interests of the clients above his own.  I look forward to having him be a part of this firm for years to come,” Miley states.

Keith was raised in the Adamston section of Clarksburg, the son of Gary (deceased) and Carol Gould.  He graduated from Liberty High School in 1987, Fairmont State College in 1991 and WVU’s College of Law in 1996.  Keith currently resides in Bridgeport with Tracy, his wife of 13 years, and his two children.  Tracy teaches 7th grade social studies at Bridgeport Middle School, where she is also responsible for working with WVU’s student teachers.

Keith and Tracy are most passionate about spending time with their children, who are active in swimming, baseball and gymnastics.  When Keith is not working on his 1920’s-era home (which he claims to enjoy), he likes to spend time walking on the beach at sunset with his wife and kids, and an occasional trip to the Clarksburg YMCA to stay fit. Keith is also an avid fan of the Mountaineers and the Pittsburgh Pirates, and dreams that they will both win championships.

Welcome home Keith, we’re glad you’re here!!!
