About Me

I represent the underdog against the big insurance companies.  I excercise my passion for representing victims of serious injury, wrongful death, brain injury and nursing home abuse on a daily basis.  My clients give me strength and fuel my desire to help them achieve justice. 


 


I have tried several important cases to juries, including cases that have ranged from serious personal injury to aggravated murder.


 


I enjoy rowing, rock climbing, writing and running. I am married to local real estate broker, Maddie Burnside, and have two wonderful daughters.


 


I am also the author of Look to Your Left: A True Story of Law School Survival in the Face of Impossibility, Murder, and an Appalachian Apocalypse. After entering the market to stellar reviews and compared with Scott Turow's One L and John Osborn's Paper Chase, it is available for purchase at www.jeremyburnside.com to which any profits will benefit the Appalachian School Law Sutin Blackwell Dales Memorial Scholarship fund.
