  • Kathleen G Burke

    I had the pleasure of working on a dental malpractice case in Virginia with Ed. His experience and expertise both as a lawyer and a dentist were invaluable. We were able to achieve a great result for our client. I would welcome the opportunity to work with again and give him my endorsement. If you have a substantial case you should contact Ed!
