About me

I am the Principal and Founder of the T.Burd Law Group. I enjoy working with clients to tell their story. Whether you are a business or an individual, I help apply the law to your facts in such a way that the judge, jury, or opposing party wants to agree with you.

Originally from Cerritos, California, I am a long term resident of San Diego, spending most of my time in the Point Loma and Ocean Beach areas. With experience from the file room to the courtroom - I have over a decade in the legal field.
