  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I endorse this lawyer. Mike and I have been on opposite sides of several cases so I know from experience that he is a skilled trial lawyer who understands both the law and how the trial process works. He is very good in business litigation and if you need someone to defend you, he is an excellent choice.
