About Me

Beth is an associate at the Burdge Law Office in Dayton, Ohio. She joined the firm in 2004 and concentrates her practice on consumer protection cases, including: lemon law and breach of warranty cases for cars, motorcycles, and RVs, autofraud, debt collection cases, and bankruptcy.

She has also co-edited Chapter 7, Lemon Law, of the Baldwin’s Ohio Consumer Law Handbook 2011 and 2012 Editions. She has also had articles appearing from 2010 to 2012 published in the Dayton Bar Association Magazine, Bar Briefs.

  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I have worked with a lot of lawyers over the last 30 plus years and Beth is absolutely the best and brightest of them all. She knows the law extremely well and is extraordinarily talented in her legal writing skills and arguing motions in court. She has a sharp legal mind and cares passionately about helping her clients understand the law and win their case. She is not afraid to take a case in front of a jury and explain why her client is right. It is one thing to know the law, it's another thing to be able to handle a case in a courtroom, and it's an entirely different thing to be able to do it all well. She does that and she does it extremely well. If you have a lemon car and want to know what you can do about it, she's the one to talk to. I highly recommend her to you.
