D. (Alex) Burkhalter is as personable as he is professional.
Alex Burkhalter earned my respect and confidence from the very beginning. My case was a wrongful termination against a municipality, which involved uncommon, technical environmental concepts. Just to understand the facts of this situation, the entire staff had to learn what must have seemed like a new language. Not only did they learn the environmental concepts and the proper, technical way to speak them, they became proficient in the specific details. Although I was certainly pleased in his understanding and adaptation to the language of my case, it wasn’t his proficiency in the details of this situation that impressed me the most. It was that each and every one of the staff demonstrated a very personal interest in my well-being and in correcting the environmental issues this case would address. From our first meeting, I knew that Alex Burkhalter was as concerned with these environmental issues as I was. I also knew that this firm was deeply concerned for my personal well-being. This review falls far short of expressing my gratitude for this well-accomplished firm. To you reading this review, I say - this law firm and its entire staff are the most dedicated, professional and personable you could hope for. To Alex and the Burkhalter Law Firm, I say “Thank you” from the depths of my truth.

Up and coming super lawyer
I was wrongfully terminated from a local government position. Because it was government it was very complex. After consulting with Mr. David Burkhalter and his son Alex they took my case. They worked together like hand in glove. They kept me updated and aware of things that would be upcoming. I was never “caught of guard” in the process of mandatory wait times or replies from the defendants. They were completely in charge of my situation and had the answers before the defendants could ask the questions. It was amazing watching how prepared Alex and the Burkhalter firm was. Alex was wise and professional above his years. Alex was always very honest with me and let me know what to expect at the next turn. I would absolutely recommend Alex and the Burkhalter Firm to anyone looking for the Best of the Best.

Alex Burkhalter is the epitome of an attorney and a gentleman. His determination to do the highest quality work for his clients is undeniable. My complex wrongful termination suits required many hours of research and fact finding. He was relentless in his pursuit of justice in this case. At all times, he was respectful to me and made me feel confident and comfortable. He also made several positive suggestions to the Sr. partner that strengthened my claim, and I am happy to say that David (I)) defeated Goliath (a large corporation) thanks to the hard work, diligence and dedication of the Burkhalters. Alex is still young in his career, but he displays the attributes of a seasoned attorney. He was invaluable to my case. I cannot say enough good things about this young man, who places the well-being of his clients first and foremost. I was always at ease and calm with him. He is not afraid to stand up to a Goliath!! I would recommend him wholeheartedly to any client with a work-related case.
