Bruce R. Bentley
As a successful Kentucky attorney, I believe in working hard, being involved in the community, and helping ordinary people who are struggling to make ends meet. I truly love my job, and feel immense satisfaction from helping good people in need. I understand that most of my clients are hurt through no fault of their own, and that frequently their injuries have caused them to lose their jobs and, subsequently, their insurance. That doesn’t sit well with me.
After earning my Juris Doctorate from the University of Kentucky College of Law, I immediately began practicing in the field, working hard to bring justice to the clients who needed me the most. Too often victims can’t get the medical treatment they need because of inadequate coverage, exclusions in their policy, or an insurance provider refusing to approve treatment. It can take months or even years to recover physically, emotionally and financially from a severe injury.
That’s where my trial and negotiating skills come in handy. I am a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a highly-regarded group comprised of attorneys who have won million and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements. Less than one percent of U.S. lawyers are welcomed as members, so when you choose me to fight for your rights, you’re choosing an attorney who has what it takes to get you the payout you need.

My name is Tyler D. George and I represent individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own. Throughout my career I have provided quality and ethical representation to injured clients from all walks of life. I have represented everyone from doctors to teachers to coal miners and take pride in achieving excellent results in each and every case. Not only do I achieve excellent end-results for my clients, but I also understand that your case isn’t only about the end-result. I take pride in ensuring that my clients stay informed throughout their case from the first time we meet in my office until the time their case closed. I always make it known to my clients that their case is personal to me, and that they will always be a person rather than just another file number in my office.
There are many important questions that clients need answered after they have been injured in an accident. Should I talk to the insurance company? Who will pay for the damage to my vehicle? Who will pay for my medical bills? I’m unable to work, how will I make up for my lost wages? I want you to know that I understand the stress you are going through after being injured, and I am here to make sure your questions are answered. I certainly believe that my clients reap the benefit of my considerable knowledge and the personal investment that I have in every case.
I’m originally from London, Kentucky, and a graduate of North Laurel High School. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Western Kentucky University and my Juris Doctor from the University of Kentucky College of Law.
Outside of the office, I enjoy playing golf, going to the lake, and spending time with family, friends, and my Bengal cat, Jazz.

I understand that each and every case will change the life of my clients, and I take that responsibility very seriously. My goal is to help people when they come to our office; to work towards making your situation better and helping you through the legal process. I am personally involved with every client at all stages of representation. I work diligently to ensure that my clients stay informed about their case, and to keep open lines of communication. I want my clients to feel that they can contact me with questions or other concerns at any point during their case.
I decided that I wanted to be an attorney when I was four years old. Already, it was clear that my abysmal hand-eye coordination ruled out professional athlete or ninja. I loved to talk and wanted to fight for the underdogs. I framed the rest of my education around that goal and graduated from the University of Kentucky with my bachelor’s degree in Political Science as well as my Juris Doctor.
