Best Lawyers

The Bollinger Law Firm, PC is located in Charlotte, North Carolina. We handle Workers' Compensation, Social Security Disability, and Serious Personal Injury matters, as well as general civil litigation cases.

Our clients are treated with integrity and respect for their needs, goals, and objectives. We focus on intelligent and aggressive legal representation and pledge to listen to and communicate with our clients. We know that "going to court" is sometimes necessary to get the best result for our client, and we are certainly willing to litigate aggressively when it is in our client's best interest to do so. However, we first try to resolve disputes through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution techniques such as mediation.

I am a Board Certified Specialist in NC Workers' Compensation Law.  A Board Certified Specialist has been tested and vetted by the NC State Bar in order to assure the public that the lawyer has a high level of competence in the specialty area of law.  An injured employee needs a competent attorney on a workers' compensation case.  An injured worker can be assured that a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law is indeed competent to handle the case properly.  Unlike some lawyers, I do not dabble in workers' comp law; it is the main area in which I work.
