Casebolt said Robb was able to do some of those things, but said Brown and his firm can provide more comprehensive help.
Robb continues to serve as city attorney for the town of Marmet. He was mayor of South Charleston for 32 years.
Brown will be paid $3,000 a month as city attorney. Robb was paid $2,500 a month.
Neither Robb nor Casebolt said he had any hard feelings over the change.
"I have enjoyed my time there and wish them and Mayor [Casebolt] the best," Robb said.
"I appreciate Richie's service to the city over the past several years," Casebolt said. "We just feel we're getting a capable, full-service law firm."
