About Derek

Learn Derek’s areas of practice.

Derek K. Burch is a firmly rooted Oklahoman, but his reputation as a trial lawyer has taken him to courts across the country. Oftentimes, his own cases take him to other jurisdictions, but frequently he is called upon by lawyers elsewhere to assist them in their own local cases.

After receiving his J.D. from the Oklahoma City University School of Law in December, 1988, Burch began his legal career working for two law firms that handled insurance defense and commercial work, but it wasn’t the kind of law that he wanted to practice. Noted Oklahoma City plaintiff’s attorney Ed Abel gave Burch the chance to join his firm and handle personal-injury cases and Burch found what he was looking for. Burch’s old law-school friend, Kelly A. George, then also joined the Abel firm and they worked together there for several years before deciding to create their own firm, launching Burch & George in 1997.

Great Lawyer
Derek was our co-counsel in a major wrongful death case. He is a great attorney, and a true co-counsel. He worked very hard, and everything he did on the case was excellent. I strongly recommend Derek Burch as a 5 star attorney in OK!
