This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

I am very happy, he took the time to explain everything to me and did NOT rush thru my legal matter.

An excellent lawyer and person! I felt desperate and had called so many law firms in the Charles Town area. His office was the first one to respond and show true concern. Mr. Bottner contacted me shortly thereafter and helped me with the over complicated laws of our legal system. I will be forever grateful for his dedication!

Hired Kirk to represent me for a DUI case, after being refered to him by many people locally. During the intial consulation I was given clear information on how I needed to proceed and was encouraged to act quickly to show the court that I was serious about getting the issue resolved. I retained him as my lawyer and followed his instructions, which lead to me getting a deferral that will eventually be exsponged from my record. During court he always arrived on time and was calm, collected and concise. I will always recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice. A very professional and passionate representative.

Kirk is one of the finest criminal defense attorneys I have ever met. He thinks fast on his feet and is a bull dog at trial. In my opinion, Kirk is one of the finest trial lawyers in West Virginia. Kirk is equally adept in his handling of bankruptcy, family law, personal injury, and general civil litigation.
