Mr. Burkett was wonderful in resolving a difficult and ongoing contractor issue. I appreciated his professionalism, consideration, expertise, communication, and overall demeanor. He respected my time and money, and I felt confident that my best interest was always at the forefront of his priorities. I would strongly recommend him to anyone I know and use him again, should the need arise.

I actually consulted with David on a separate topic before I hired him on another topic. I was impressed and let him know if a situation develop where I need real estate representation, I would let him know. About a year later, I needed real estate representation, so I hired him.
He created an excellent contract for me and it was executed without a hitch. But even more than that, he gave me cost savings advice which I use to this day.
David is great for real estate representation, and I strongly recommend others to consider him for real estate scenarios.

David Burkett has counselled me for over 10 years. I own a small construction supply business and require advice on a wide variety of topics, often beyond my own ability to navigate. David is always there to provide thoughtful advice presented concisely and most important to me, swiftly.
David has provided excellent legal representation on partnership issues gone south, reviewed my performance related contracts and made beneficial recommendations, advised and coached me through performance claims to reduced reasonable settlements, assisted with collection efforts to speedy and successful ends and has been there for me whenever I needed a sounding board on general issues.
Always a fast reply to my requests, often within minutes of pushing “send” with a cut to the chase analysis of my issue, using sound reasoning to give me a plain speak solution. If you are looking for an attorney who will treat you as though you are his only client, I would highly recommend David Burkett.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I met Dave about 6 years ago. I sued a lay person who did not pay my lawyer-clients hourly fees in some litigation. Dave substitututed in this case for another lawyer against whom I had gotten an advantage. Dave proved to be much more adept and competent. He did a superb job of taking the deposition of my lawyer client. He was thoroughly prepared, and was relentless in pursing his inquiries from my client. I was truly impressed. I moved for summary jdugment and had what I thought was the better argument on the facts. Dave did a superb job in opposing kmy motion and I lost a part of my motion I did not expect to lose. As a result of this, I made a point of getting to know Dave socially and we have formed a good professional friendship. He now works with me in my practice involving disputed lawyers fees. I can always rely on Dave for excellent analysis, preparation and good results. He is one of the best against whom I have litigated.
