About Me

Gary Burger is a founding partner at the St. Louis personal injury law firm Cantor & Burger and heads the Civil Litigation Group. I devote my practice to helping injury victims and their families, providing financial recovery and protecting the future of those injured, and making our community safer through advocacy and volunteer work.

I have tried and won many complex civil litigation cases in many areas: medicalmalpractice, products liability, employment discrimination, auto crashes, motorcycle and truck cases, premises liability, class actions, and consumer fraud. I also handle claims and try cases in commercial litigation, probate, workers compensation, and administrative and arbitration hearings in both Missouri and Illinois.
