  • Jennifer L Keel

    Michael Burg is one of the most well known and well respected trial lawyers in the nation. He built our law firm from the ground up, starting as a solo practitioner with little more than a passion for helping people. Recently he was recognized as one the most influential attorneys of the decade--just one of a great many awards he has been given in his career. Mike's achievements set an example to which lawyers everywhere aspire. Most importantly, Mike cares about his clients and has a long-standing, proven track record for getting great results for them.

  • Christopher Daniel Leroi

    Mr. Burg is an exceptional attorney. I have been an attorney for 24 years and served as a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, law professor, and private attorney. However, even with all of that experience, I learn from his answers on Avvo each and every day. If you have the chance, hire him in an instant.
