I walked in his door not even sure if I had a case. He assured me that I did and went to work right away proving it. While I didn't get everything, my judgement was fair and I am very happy. I would and will definitely use him and his firm again and recommend him and his firm to family and friends.
David and his partner Lee Burdette were hired by me to resolve a fee dispute with my divorce attorney. They discussed my case in a professional and comprehensive manner. I'm impressed with their intergity, work ethic and willingness to work with a clear and upfront billing system. Their understanding of the law regarding consummer affairs and the Washington Bar's code of ethics resulted in this case being settled within the budget/fee they quoted and within my settlement offer. I would highly recommend both of these attorney's because of their intergrity and knowldge.
David is exceptional. David has represented me in general business matters, business acquisitions, city and county bids, and real estate transactions. When explaining legal options, David has always treated me with the utmost respect and understanding. David has the big firm horsepower to get the job done, but without the big firm drawbacks. I highly recommend him.
David Burkett has represented our company for 15 years and has been an invaluable asset to us. His depth of wisdom and skill in multiple facets of the law are simply unparalleled. While many attorneys have a habit of running up their fees, Dave's advice and desire to do the right thing, has often come at his own expense, by solving matters quickly and efficiently. In my opinion, there simply is not a more qualified or more competent attorney than Mr. David Burkett.
We have multiple businesses ranging from maritime interests to office buildings to single family housing. We have been legal guardians requiring legal assistance and are property owners with sticky situations. Dave has helped us with it all. If he doesn't know about the subject, he learns quickly and comes up with straight-forward, no-nonsense advice. His follow-through is impeccable and to top it off, he's a darn nice guy. After more than 10 years as our attorney, we would not turn to anyone else.
As a trusted counselor David tells you what the law is and not what you may or may not want to hear. He is exceptionally smart and meticulous and never misses a detail. He is unfailingly professional and adheres to the highest ethical standards. When you have an issue you deal directly with David and not and associate and his response is always expeditious. I have used David for drafting and reviewing construction contracts, leases, purchase and sale agreements and other general business issues with great success. David's most valuable attribute is his ability to strategize with the client ways to avoid trouble. If a dispute cannot be avoided then David will fight for his client in the most vigorous fashion. If you find yourself having to travel down a dark legal alley you definitely want David on your side. You will not find a more competent and effective lawyer.
David has been my lawyer for 13 years. His knowledge and expertise have kept me and my multiple business interests out of legal trouble the whole time. He is always right, and never afraid to tell you the truth even if you don't want to hear it. He has worked on cases for me from timber tresspass disputes to estate planning to employee suits,always giving me good advice. He is completely thorough and never has to be reminded of anything. If you are looking for an attorney that knows his stuff inside and out this is the guy for you. Thanks Dave.
Mr. Burkett was hostile and unhelpful from the moment I entered his office. Perhaps it had something to do with my work benefits covering the visit at a reduced rate. Compared to my experiences with other attorneys, he ranks at the very bottom in terms of professionalism and responsiveness. Mr. Burkett should learn a little humility and patience.
