Bruce R. Bentley Over 20 Years of Dedicated Experience

Get to Know Attorney Bentley

As a successful Kentucky attorney, Bruce believes in working hard, being involved in the community, and helping ordinary people who are struggling to make ends meet. He truly loves his job and feels immense satisfaction from helping good people in need. He understands that most of his 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 him.

After earning his Juris Doctorate from the University of Kentucky College of Law, he immediately began practicing in the field, working hard to bring justice to the clients who needed him 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 his trial and negotiating skills come in handy. Bruce is 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 him to fight for your rights, you’re choosing an attorney who has what it takes to get you the payout you need.

In April 2021, Bruce and theBruce Bentley, Attorney At Law team merged with Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer and became a Member of the firm.
