Great Attorney
Mr.Bunn and his assistant JoAnne worked with me throughout this difficult journey. I had no understanding of how worker’s comp. cases could be so confusing and and intimidating and I knew after attempting to manage this on my own that I needed an attorney with expertise in this area. After consulting with others that had suffered injuries and used this firm I reached out to Mr.Bunn. He guided me through every step and knew exactly what was right and what was wrong. He contacted me by phone and emails weekly and I never had to wonder ifI had made the right decision. I would highly recommend this attorney for any Workman’s Comp. Injury.

Honest, Integrity and Kindness
I didn't want a big box lawyer to handle my case, I want someone who was going to care about me. Mr. Bunn took time of his vacation to speak with me. During my case I left my higher paying job for a lower paying job, Mr. Bunn helped me out when things got tight. Mr. Bunn was able to obtain a very settlement for me. Mr. Bunn and Ms. Joanne are kind, caring and honest people who will fight for you and your rights. THANKS AGAIN MR. BUNN! & MS. JOANNE.

What a great experience I had with Kevin (and JoAnne)! Honest, straight forward. Extremely knowledgeable. Made me feel at ease and informed through the entire process. Brought a sense of comfort that 'Big' Firms would not be able to emulate.

Look No Further, You've Found The BEST!
I was injured at work in 2008 and needed the best Workers Compensation lawyer I could find. After talking with others I received a suggestion to contact Kevin Bunn to handle my case. I consulted with Mr. Bunn and contracted him to represent me. I know that Mr. Bunn has represented and directed me to the best of his ability. I'm very appreciative of his legal knowledge, and that of his staff, especially Joanne Latta, in order for the outcome of my case to work to my advantage. Mr. Bunn and Joanne have always acted promptly in answering my phone calls and emails. I can't thank them enough and I would certainly highly recommend Mr. Bunn to anyone seeking a Workers Compensation lawyer.

A Great Lawyer and a Great Man
Kevin Bunn is a great lawyer and a great man. I consider myself very lucky and blessed to have had him representing and working for me over the past few years. I found him by word of mouth while I was looking for a lawyer to handle my worker's compensation claim and my application for social security disability. He was one of the only lawyers I found in the area who would handle both of these. I knew from the first time I met him in person that he was the right choice. Kevin is a straightforward, honest, rational, down to earth and very kind person who went above and beyond to help me and to bring forth favorable results on all fronts for my situation. He always explained things well, we were always on the same page before making any moves, and I truly felt like he put me as a person first and foremost, before lawyer fees or anything else like that. I honestly only have positive things to say about Kevin and my experience working with him. Also, his paralegal JoAnne is awesome, and it always cheered me up to hear her voice on the phone. I highly recommend Kevin Bunn to anyone who is searching for top notch representation for their worker's compensation claim or social security disability application. Thank you, Kevin and JoAnne!

Excellent Legal Representation
Very comprehensive and complete service was provided to me. Mr. Bunn answered all my questions and explained my options, from a legal perspective. Mr. Bunn was always available by phone, if I had to have a question answered. Legal issues can be stressful, but I am happy to say that my experience was pain free! I would strongly recommend Mr. Bunn for legal advice that falls within his area of expertise.

The lawyer with experience and empathy
I used Mr. Bunn's service on early 2000 first time. Then, I used his service couple more times during the subsequent years. He always listened carefully, explained clearly, investigated thoroughly, and responded timely. He is sincere and empathizes your situation and feeling. Most importantly, he protects your interests. He has my trust in full. In one occasion, I met Mr. Bunn with my son. After leaving his office, I told my son that Mr. Bunn presented a good example of making a decent living and doing meaningful things. Now, my son is also a lawyer. Thanks, Kevin!

Best Lawyer I Have Ever Come Across
I was referred to Mr. Kevin by another lawyer and Mr. Bunn took care of everything and he took care of everything. He got me what I wanted and am grateful. He took care of me like I was a member of his family. If I ever need a lawyer or anybody I know needs one I will refer them to Mr. Bunn.

Very helpful and experienced!
Found myself in uncharted waters with a Workers Comp injury and felt very overwhelmed! I called Mr.Bunn and after our conversation, I hired him to represent me. I found Mr.Bunn to be extremely knowledgeable and up to date on all the workers comp laws here in N.C. . He took all the pressures off of me so I could concentrate on healing and returning to a normal life again. Thanks again Kevin and Joanne!

An expert Attorney with sincere concern for my legal issues
When I contacted attorney, Mr. Kevin Bunn, concerning my work related injury, he was more concerned with my health and my need for medical attention, and eventual surgery, than legal issues. He and his legal assistant, Joanne, made sure every legal issue was handled with the most excellent expertise. They kept in constant contact, updating me with what was happening in every aspect of all legal matters. When I needed their legal services to obtain SS disability, they were there to assist and to take of all the issues regarding disability. Joanne, reminded me of my medical appoints when most times I would forget. Joanne made sure all records needed were collected and distributed to the right person or agency. Again< I am very happy I chose the law office of Kevin Bunn. I would recommend anyone who may have job related medical issues or SS Disability claims. Thanks to all

You want Kevin Bunn in your corner!
A great workers comp. lawyer for a difficult case. Many months I struggled on my own trying to receive compensation for an on the job injury only to be denied by my company's insurance dept. I found Mr. Bunn who reviewed my case and represented me. I won my case with a cash settlement. I felt very at ease in a very difficult situation with Mr. Bunn's help and guidence. He gets the job done.

A man of heart
First, Kevin is not about money, he helped my wife with his free consultation. With his strategy she won a denied unemployment benefits. Knowing she was unemployed, he did not charged her. That is a man that put his client first before any settlements. Thanks again!

Kevin Bunn Review
Kevin got a fair settlement and resolution for me in my injury claim. I was having difficulty with my employer in their willingness to provide the care I was going to require in the long run. Kevin negotiated strongly and satisfactorily on my behelf. I could not have done this without him
