About me

At the age of 12, I went through the criminal justice system as a victim. It was such a terrible experience that it motivated me to become an attorney. I realized that if I had an attorney who took the time to educate me about the legal process, I would have been more confident and better prepared. I grew more and more committed to becoming an attorney who genuinely cares about their clients.


 


I started my career as an Insurance Adjuster. Shortly after, I went to law school and practiced corporate law. In 1995, I came to Atlanta to open my own personal injury law firm from just $250.00. Since then, the Law Office of Sheryl Burke has evolved immensely, but our mission and values remain the same. We are committed to justice and ensuring that people are treated fairly.


 


In addition, I am a member of The State Bar of Georgia, The American Bar Association, Association of Trial Lawyers, Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and The State Bar of California. I am also an Introduction Leader for Landmark Education and a very active tennis player.
