Business litigation
I had a business relationship with several other persons involving multiple high dollars projects. For years I not get the to deal with us in a fair and expeditious manner. I had tried a couple of other lawyers without success. I hired Mr. Burk and his firm. He was able through a lawsuit and negotiation to restructure my companies relationships, so I would be fairly treated and receive more money from the transactions. Moreover, he negotiated a major discount for us, if paid within the extended time he also negotiated.All of this resulted in my getting a far better economic result than we had hoped. I can highly recommend Mr. Michael Burk and the Burk Law Firm PC to others.

Excellent Representation
The Burk Law firm represented me in a complex Federal contracts fraud case. MIchael and his team of lawyers did an excellent job in researching, preparing and timely filing of the lawsuit as well as supporting the DOJ in their efforts to understand the full facets of the recent laws applicable to this complex case. Michael is an excellent communicator, and I came to understand that he had my best interests in the forefront of all of the legal efforts. I would absolutely use Burk Law firm again and recommend Michael highly.

Burk Firm Review
The Burk Law firm was very professional and extremely knowledgeable in the contracts and agreements area. They have assisted us with our corporate contract reviews and have brought to our attention several areas of concern, which we would not have identified. Their responsiveness to our requests has also been very appreciative, because some of the partners we deal with need the contracts/agreements turned around in a couple of business days.
