Motorcycle personal injury attorney Bob Karney My commitment to bikers

Passion is where it begins and ends for me. Life is all about identifying your passions and living them out. I love to ride, and like most bikers I like to talk about riding as much as I love to do it. Early on in my career I discovered that what I enjoyed most about practicing law was helping people. My wife, Ginger, and I have made our home in the Carolinas and there is no other place I’d rather live or ride. These days, my passions have come full circle. It is a joy to practice law in a way that allows me to represent my fellow bikers which is where my heart lies.

Most of my clients, many of whom have become personal friends will tell you that I am an easy going guy. But when I defend my clients, I fight to win. I genuinely care about each person that I represent and I understand the obstacles we face as bikers, both on the road and in the courtroom. I enjoy getting to personally know each of my clients and understanding their burdens. Most importantly it is fulfilling for me to be able to harness my passion and bring justice for my clients.

See you out on the road!
