Personal Injury, Family Law, Civil Disputes and Mediation
I am Burton Hunter, a lawyer in Buckhannon, West Virginia. For the past 32 years, following four years as a U.S. Air Force assistant Judge Advocate in the JAG Corp, my law practice has been dedicated to giving individuals and families the representation they need at the time they need it the most. Whether you are facing a divorce, suffering from an injury received in a car accident or embroiled in a dispute that is headed for court, I will use my legal experience to protect your interests and serve as your advocate.
I represent clients in three main areas of law:
- Personal Injury — I represent people injured in car accidents, by defective or dangerous products, in industrial accidents, and by medical malpractice. I always represent the little guy against insurance companies and big business.
As an experienced Buckhannon personal injury lawyer, I know how devastating a serious injury can be for you and your family. I am here to even the playing field and help you get the compensation you need to recover your health, pay your bills and get on with your life.
- Family Law — Every family is different and has unique issues to resolve. I will work closely with you to reach agreement on disputes over divorce, child custody and support, and other family concerns.
I will work hard to help you obtain a favorable resolution through negotiation, mediation or a trial.
- Civil Lawsuits — I will help you defend and assert your rights in litigation over will contests, real estate boundaries, rights of way and other disputes. Not every case needs to go to court to obtain a satisfactory result.
I also represent clients in mediation and settlement negotiations. Mediation can be a good way to reach an equitable result without the cost and hassle of litigation. I know how important your rights and property are to you, and as your lawyer I will help defend your interests. Learn more about mediation.
