- Founder, 2000
Bobby Warner founded Warner Law Offices, PLLC in 2000. Since then, he has earned widespread recognition as one of the top trial lawyers in West Virginia and the United States. His firm has grown from a small office serving clients in Charleston, West Virginia to having a second office in Denver, Colorado and serving clients nationwide in 52 states.
Bobby has been recognized for his skills in the courtroom, leading to numerous seven and eight figure results for his clients. Most recently, he obtained a $12 million result for an injured worker and a $13 million result for a burn victim.
Bobby has received many accolades throughout the years from both his peers in the legal community, as well as the media. The National Trial Lawyers association named Bobby a Top 100 Trial Lawyer and he has been selected as a Member of the Nation's Top One Percent. Additionally, he has been named a Best Attorneys of America by Rue Ratings, which also named Warner Law Offices to its Best Law Firms of America. Most recently, the firm was selected as Newsweek’s Premier Law Firm, an honor limited to 13 firms across the country. He has been awarded the Top 10 Client Satisfaction Award for the third consecutive year.
In addition to national recognition, Bobby has earned honors from business leaders in West Virginia. In a statewide attorney survey, he has been selected as a West Virginia Super Lawyer for ten consecutive years. Bobby has been named Best Attorney in the Charleston Newspapers on multiple occasions. The editors of West Virginia Executive Magazine also named him as a West Virginia Young Gun in 2014, marking the first time the award was given to a trial lawyer.
What the news clips cannot measure or define is Bobby’s commitment to, and passion for his clients. Often motivated by injustice and a sense of fair play, he has sought to even the play field whether his client is an individual or a large corporation. His work has resulted in multiple front page and feature articles in the Charleston Gazette, The Daily Mail, The Dominion Post, Clarksburg Exponent and other newspapers throughout West Virginia. He has also been a guest on local, statewide and national broadcasts related to his legal cases.
Within the legal community, Bobby is a member of the American Association for Justice, where he served on the Leaders Forum. He is also a member of the West Virginia Association for Justice and has served on the board of directors, the executive committee and was a member of LAWPAC. Additionally, he is an active member of the American Bar Association and the West Virginia Bar Association.
Bobby’s experience and success has generated regular requests for him to speak at local and national legal education seminars. He is a regular presenter at the West Virginia Association for Justice's biannual educational conventions. In addition, Bobby has authored pieces in national peer reviewed publications. His most recently authored work is a chapter entitled Agency and Apparent Agency in the soon to be published Medical Legal Handbook edited by Bob Fitzsimmons.
Bobby is licensed to practice in all West Virginia state and federal courts and in the state of Colorado.
Bobby has a well-known reputation for giving back to the community. Early in his career he started a booster seat program for needy families after he represented a family whose child was injured in a car accident because the family was unable to afford a car seat. Since that time, more than 1,000 booster seats have been donated to families throughout West Virginia. For approximately 10 years, the Warner Family Foundation has been a generous supporter of programs and special projects in the region, providing much-needed sponsorships to help non-profit organizations achieve their goals.
Bobby and Warner Law Offices were awarded the West Virginia State Senate Community Award for their extraordinary efforts and commitment to serving and protecting the citizens of West Virginia.
Aside from the practice of law, Bobby is an avid outdoorsman. The experiences he shared with his family encouraged him to create Beyond The Backyard, a charitable youth foundation that promotes outdoors sports, such as hunting, fishing and camping. This small grass roots effort has grown to an organization with over 11,000 members.
