If talking to a lawyer who is friendly and respectful to you is important, then call me.   I grew up in a blue-collar household, in a blue-collar town, and I know I am not any better than anyone else.  I am not going to talk down to you--I was raised better than that.   If you have questions about your on-the-job injury, call me.  I am an expert in workers' compensation law and I will give you a free, unlimited consultation over the phone or in person.           

If you are looking for an attorney to help you with your case, be sure to choose a "Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law."  Attorneys are are NOT all the same!  Relevant experience and specialized skills matter.       

I also have a FREE Workers' Compensation Information Package I can send you.  Just ask for it.  And I will be happy to talk to you over the phone, over ZOOM video conferencing, or by email or by text message.  Or contact me through the "chat" window on this page.    All workers' comp, personal injury, and SSDI consultations are free.      

Remember, the insurance company is NOT on your side.   It is your adversary.  Heck, let's be blunt.  The insurance company, and their claims manager or adjuster, are your enemies.  The adjuster may be nice to you, but her job is to take money out of your pocket, money that you need to take care of your bills and your loved ones.    But I am on your side!  You need to know how to deal with the insurance carrier.   So call or email me now for your free workers' compensation consultation -- with me personally, not a non-lawyer, minimally trained "intake specialist" -- and also ask for your free information package.          

If you end up hiring me as your lawyer, you will get my personal attention.  Unlike some larger firms that advertise heavily, you will not have virtually everything in your case done by a person who is NOT a lawyer.   Everyone's case is unique, and the "assembly line" approach that is used by some big firms just, in my opinion, does not produce the best results for clients.   And my goal for every single client is to get you the best possible outcome on your case. 

You will have my personal email address, that I personally monitor and use, and you can send me your questions and concerns anytime by email.  And I will respond.  It may be one o'clock in the morning, but I will answer your email.      

I will be doing the legal work on your case---unlike some law firms, I do not have a big staff of paralegals to whom the lawyer work is delegated.   You will typically deal with only one paralegal in addition to me.  At this firm we have three (3) attorneys and two (2) paralegals.   Check the lawyer to support staff ratio at some of the big firms, and you might be surprised at how few attorneys there are compared to all the support staff.  Why is that?  Well, with all those employees, who do you think is doing the work on your case?  

I want to protect your rights and add value to your claim.  I want you to be better off for having hired me to handle your case. 

When your case is finished, I want you to feel that I did a great job.  I want to earn your "Five Star rating" here on the AVVO client reviews.    

Many people need a good attorney for their workers' comp cases, because the insurance company does not have the workers' best interests at heart.   The NC Court of Appeals has stated that: "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity.....  Leaving injured employees without the representation they need to obtain the complete and total amount of their workers' compensation award would defeat the purposes of the [Workers' Compensation] Act.  In fact, employers would be encouraged to contest liability and meanwhile make voluntary payments less than that required by the Workers' Compensation Act."  Church v. Baxter Travenol, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991) (bold emphasis added).

I have practiced workers' compensation law since 1991 and have been a Board Certified Specialist in NC Workers' Compensation Law since 2000.  I am now a member of the State Bar Board of Legal Specialization committee that grades the exams of the lawyers who are trying to become certified as specialists in workers' compensation law.   

.    As the Court of Appeals said in Church, an injured employee needs a "competent" attorney on a workers' compensation case--not a traffic ticket lawyer who just takes on your workers' comp case hoping for a quick fee, and certainly not a "case manager" or legal assistant handling your case at the big firm.  An injured worker can be assured that a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law is indeed competent to handle the case properly.   My paralegal helps me with the paperwork and phone calls, but I am the one handling your case and making the judgment calls on your behalf.  I am putting my 30+ years of experience and expertise to work for you.    

I grew up in Newton, North Carolina, which was primarily a furniture and textiles town at the time.   I enjoy handling workers' compensation cases for injured workers, partly because I worked in "blue collar" jobs as a young man.  I worked in retail stores, in a furniture factory (tailing the rip saws), in a foam rubber factory (on the "Baumer slitter" cutting carpet cushion) and for a plant nursery and landscaping business.  I also taught tennis lessons in Hickory.  I have loaded and unloaded semi trailers and dug holes in hard ground with a mattock and shovel.  I understand hard, physical work and I have seen with my own eyes how employees are sometimes mistreated by management.  That mistreatment has always made me angry.   Now, as a workers' compensation specialist lawyer, I have the skills and credentials to do something about it for my clients.  I can level that playing field for the working man or woman.  I can usually make that big company treat you right.  And I love doing that for my clients!       

Workers' Compensation is a complex and complicated area of the law.  I give injured workers a strong and aggressive voice against the rich and powerful insurance company.   That insurance carrier has entire law firms at its disposal to use against injured workers.   The insurance company just wants to make money--it does not care about you or your family.  There is nothing I enjoy more than taking on the big insurance company and winning a good award, or negotiating a good settlement, for a client who has been injured at work and still has children to feed and bills to pay.  My goal as a lawyer is always to protect your rights and to add value to your claim.  At the end of the case, I always want to leave you better off for having hired me to help you.  And hopefully, I will leave you a lot better off!   

Without a good lawyer, an injured worker is at the mercy of the insurance company and its lawyers.   Look at the web sites of the insurance defense law firms here in NC-- such as the "Cranfill Sumner,"   "Hedrick Gardner" and "McAngus Goudelock" firms.  They have dozens of lawyers in their workers' compensation defense sections who only represent insurance carriers and employers.   Who is going to be your legal advocate?   Me, that's who!   I enjoy being the attorney for all the hard-working people of North Carolina who need my help.   So get in touch with me!  If you need my expertise, I would like to help you. 

As I mentioned earlier, I am certified by the NC State Bar as a "Specialist" in Workers' Compensation Law.  Unlike some lawyers, I do not dabble in workers' comp law; it is the main area in which I work.  Those lawyers who lack my experience charge you the same fee percentage that I do.  Why would you hire someone less skilled and less experienced if the fee percentage you pay is the same?  

In addition to my Specialist certification, I have also earned the respect of the defense lawyers that I go up against.   My professional peers have rated me highly.  I have been listed as "AV Preeminent" (Top 5% of rated lawyers in the nation) in Martindale Hubbell every year since 2005.   I have also been selected as a North Carolina "Superlawyer" every year since 2007.  And I have been named in the "Best Lawyers in America" every year since 2008.  Best Lawyers named me the "Lawyer of the Year" for 2017 in the area of "Workers' Compensation Claimants' Lawyers" for the Charlotte area. 

In 2015 I was inducted as a "Fellow" into a national workers' comp lawyer honorary organization, the College of Workers' Compensation Lawyers.  Less than two dozen North Carolina lawyers who represent injured workers have been inducted into the College, and of those, less than six of us are located in Charlotte.   My peers in the Plaintiffs' bar, who also represent injured workers, elected me to be the Chairman of the Workers' Compensation Section of the NC Advocates for Justice, our statewide lawyer group, for the fiscal year of 2009-10.   All these peer endorsements mean that I know what I am doing.   Fortunately, I can use that knowledge to help you get what you need from your workers' comp claim.       

If you have a question about your North Carolina workers' compensation claim, then get in touch with me.  Consultations are always free and I will answer your questions in person, on the phone or by email or text.  There is no obligation on your part.  I am happy to answer questions because I know that if you need a good attorney to represent you, then you will likely allow me to do that job for you.   So don't hesitate to get in touch with me for a free discussion and free legal advice about your workers' compensation case!

Prompt Detailed Response
He responded quickly to my one question, and completely explained all options that I would have needed answered, had I been sitting in his office; very thorough. If I had the option of moving forward, I'd have no reservations of working with him.

100% recommend. It is not often that a lawyer can make you feel like you are relying on a trusted friend. Not only do they get the job done, they are efficient and give you the peace of mind you need. Bob was very timely with any questions I had no matter the time or day. I was terrified to call the wrong firm, but they are life savers. 10 stars

Honest straight-forward attorney
I spoke with Bob about whether or not I would have retaliatory discrimination case against my former employer. He spent about 15 minutes discussing it with me on the phone and made it clear to me that I don't have much of a case against my former employer. He did not rush to get me off the phone and did not charge me for his time on the phone. Also, he did NOT try to get me to come his office for a paid consultation. I think it is rare these days that an attorney would not try to "suck money" out of you, knowing that you don't have much of a case. I very much appreciated his honesty about my situation with my former employer.

Mr. Bollinger consulted me on my workers compensation settlement. He took his time and explained to me what to expect when settling my case. He answered all of my questions thoroughly. I was very pleased with the information that he gave me free of charge. He was very helpful and I will definitely hire him if I need him.

Will To Fight For You
Mr. Bollinger, and I talked and when he called I felt that crap here is another lawyer that will listen then say sorry our firm just do not handle those type of cases. So imagine my surprise and astonished face when he said yes to my case. I would have tried to do it on my own but I have to say I was already mentally tired. I was all but ready to give up on lawyers that still care about justice. I have tremendous faith in him he sounds very knowledgeable and from the reviews he puts it to work. I cannot say thank you enough.

Mr. Bollinger comes at things with the right frame of mind
Although my issue needed to be solved by an attorney in another state, Mr. Bollinger took the time to provide me with some insight from his experience as well as to provide some good positive moral support. So many other lawyers here either don't respond or send a canned "not interested" email. Knowledge of law is extremely important as an attorney. I would argue that the quality of the person is almost as important. (What do you do with your knowledge and skill to make the world a better place.) If I had needs in NC - Mr. Bollinger would be my first call as he has shown me to be accomplished in both realms.

Caring, Helpful and Honest
After meeting mr. Bollinger for my initial consultation, I could tell right away that he cares more about the client than any attorney I have ever dealt with. He is straight up and honest with you about about your options. Does not push you to hire him and only advises you to hire him if you feel like you would still need his assistance after reviewing your options with him. I would highly recommend him!

Excellent lawyer
Bobby Bollinger, esq. returned my call promptly. I was asking him about an old slip and fall accident and he took the time to explain things about the law and what was relevant to my case. He took more time explaining the law as it pertained to my case. He explain the law that the lawyer that got paid didn't take the time to explain. I will definitely keep Bobby Bollinger on my phone in case i need a lawyer in the future.

Mrs
My husband and I both went into the office to meet with Mr Bollinger. He was polite, professional and we immediately felt at ease. He gave us great advice during the consultation and didn't pressure us to retain his firm. Mr Bollinger has my highest regard. He is an enigma. Someone who cares in a profession that money is usually the motivation behind actions. I would definitely recommend him. If you're looking for a great attorney, you can trust, you've found him. I have a workman's compensation case and I work for an airline. His expertise has been invaluable. His office staff are helpful and efficient. Vicki, is a cut above the rest.

Excellent attorney!
Mr Bollinger is the most competent attorney you can get for your workers comp case. I fired my original big firm attorney after being treated like a case #, not a person- and I'm so happy that I did! Bob is super friendly, and down to earth outside of the courtroom but will fight for you against the insurance companies with all of his knowledge about the law. Bob will treat you with respect, and he cares! He will answer your questions and be in touch with you day or night! I would absolutely recommend him to help, he is knowledgeable, ethical, sharp as a tack and has a great sense of humor too, He is easy to talk to and most of all will fight for you. I have not settled my case yet but I trust Bob and highly recommend him! You can't hire anyone better, and his staff is super helpful too, thank you to Bob, Janice and Nick for all of your expert advice so far!

Workman's Comp
Mr. Bollinger, demonstrated exceptional knowledge and empathy in our conversations. He took the time to explain the Workman Compensation laws, their application and a strategy to maximize my claim. He has a rare combination of being very personal with a no nonsense approach. He is the warrior in your corner. These are qualities that can not be taken for granted. At a time in my life, when everything was in complete chaos and uncertainty with loss of income and severe injuries. He provide my family and myself confidence and hope that everything was going to be okay. I had someone to fight for my family. I truly believe he had our best interest at heart. I want to say thank you for all that you have done. You are a blessing.

workmans comp
Mr Bollinger was a real help in getting this case to settle. The employer tried everything they could do to deny this claim and was very difficult to work with, Bobby was able to keep the tension down and resolve this without the cooperation or concern from other party, this mater was highly conflicted and Bobby remained cool and level headed and stuck to the law to force this matter to conclusion. I would highly recommend this lawyer when most other lawyers would not even consider trying to represent me in such a complicated and conflict centered matter. Mr Bollinger was the true caring professional who is strong enough to stand up for his clients, IN SHORT he is the best at what he does.
