Kyle  R.  Bunnell

Biography

Having grown up in rural Kentucky, Kyle considers himself a “country lawyer.” He enjoys getting to know his clients and helping them navigate problems in both complex tort and commercial litigation matters. Before law school he was a public school teacher, and that profession taught Kyle the importance of listening to and communicating well with clients to ensure they feel heard and represented.

He received his B.S. from Western Kentucky University and attended the University of Kentucky College of Law.  Kyle was the Student Bar Association president and worked on the building committee, which helped oversee a state-of-the-art renovation of the law school’s building. He continues work closely with the UK Law community and serves on the UK Law Alumni Board of Directors.
