Finding What Burton Hunter Has to Offer

  At this stage, with 1800 blog pages, 470 articles, and three YouTube Channels, my materials and resources may seem a bit daunting to my readers.

What Don’t I Know? How Can I Find it?

One regret I have about my information sharing, particularly my blog at, is that while people may search for a topic when they have a legal problem, they really don’t know what I have in this blog and how valuable it can be, especially for West Virginians, in preventing legal problems and preparing for… View Article

Summing Up: Enhancing the Human Brain 2022. 3.0

The New 50%-50% WV Child Custody Law

Thank you, David McMahon: This link is too important not to post now and figure out how to disseminate better later. No, I am not “for the Mother”; I am “for the Child” and an advocate for my client, but this new “one size fits all” law which we successfully fought against for 5 years,… View Article

Finding the Right Lawyer

Let’s be honest here. When I pose this question, I am asking, “How can you find me?”, because, within my subject and geographical area, I am confident enough to believe that I am the lawyer you need. So, here goes: If you have heard of me and are within an hour or two drive from… View Article

The Internet Mountain Range I received this request from a person purporting to be a Dutch Lawyer practicing in Latvia. Since it arrived on the 50th anniversary of my graduation from the WVU College of Law, I used it as the launching pad for a “summing up” of what I have learned practicing law and… View Article
