After college studies, Mr. Burpee worked in Kodiak, Alaska, and while living there, assisted landowners and Alaska Natives with claims against Exxon resulting from the 1989 Valdez oil spill.

I endorse this lawyer's work. I first met Patrick Burpee in 1999 when we were both working for a large downtown law firm. In 2003, Patrick saw the light and went out on his own to practice. Eventually, I too saw the light and started my own practice in 2011. Since then, Patrick and I have joined forces to successfully defend our clients’ business interests. Patrick has a keen attention to detail which accelerates his ability to find the best leverage for settlement negotiations. When he can’t resolve a matter through negotiations, his trial skills serve him well. I highly recommend Patrick Burpee’s legal services.
