He has become very active in social media including Linked In, Face Book, Twitter, and YouTube, where he has posted over 70 informational videos. He seeks feedback, questions, and suggestions from all sources.
Hunter has represented hundreds of personal injury victims, handled around 3000 family law cases, and handled hundreds of insurance claims, civil suits, and a wide variety of other matters.

Burton Hunter believes in hard work, protecting his clients, applying “common sense” to the practice of law, and staying current in his profession. For over 30 years, Hunter’s office light has been the first to come on in Buckhannon most mornings. Drive by before 7:00 a.m. and you can see it.
