About Brett

Learn Brett’s areas of practice.

Brett Burmeister focuses on serious personal injury and wrongful death matters. He graduated in the top 2% of his law school class and has obtained several multi-million dollar recoveries for his clients.

At Burmeister Gilmore LLP, the law firm’s maxim is "Clients Come First." It is a fundamental principle that Mr. Burmeister follows in every case. He is honored to help personal injury victims and wrongful death surviving family members recover.

In 2017, Mr. Burmeister served as lead counsel in securing a $5 million recovery in a wrongful death case. In 2013, he had the distinct honor of arguing and winning a case in the Supreme Court of Missouri. Mr. Burmeister appealed a jury verdict in an automobile collision case on the basis that the trial court wrongly excluded his client from trial. In a 5-2 opinion, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Mr. Burmeister’s client and ordered a new trial. (Bair v. Faust, No. SC92904 (Mo. July 16, 2013)).

From 2012 to 2017, Mr. Burmeister’s peers named him to the Super Lawyers list—an award given to less than 5% of attorneys in the region. In 2013, the Kansas City Business Journal listed him among the Best of the Bar. Mr. Burmeister is also a lifetime member of the prestigious Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum (MDAF), whose membership is limited to attorneys that have demonstrated the ability to obtain substantial monetary recoveries for their clients. Fewer than 1% of lawyers in the United States are members of MDAF.

In addition to serious injury cases, Mr. Burmeister represents clients in business litigation, bankruptcy, and other practice areas. He is a licensed real estate broker and also handles property transactions and disputes. He is licensed to practice law in both Missouri and Kansas.

Great results
Brett was referred to me by a friend and he did not disappoint. Brett was easy to work with, very thorough, and the thing I was most impressed with was his communication. Whenever I left a message he was quick to respond. He also did not give me false expectations, even though my settlement was spot on. Would highly reccomend Brett and would use his services again if needed.

Very Knowledgeable, Extremely thourgh, Attentive to Clients needs
Brett handled a motor vehicle accident case for my family in which I sustained life altering injuries. Brett was very thorough, seeing the case all way through. He made himself available to answer questions in order to address any and all concerns. I have nothing but confidence in his ability as an attorney. If I ever have the unfortunate circumstance to encounter another legal issue I would certainly have Brett handle it. I have referred him to my family and friends. Any case he has pursued has had a positive outcome for me and those I’ve referred to him.
