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.

I have the good fortune of calling David a very good friend for more than 20+ years. And even the better fortune of having him represent me as my Attorney on a number of legal matters over time.
David has represented me in various legal matters, LLC agreements and stock holder agreements. Real Estate purchase agreements and legal disputes. My personal Non compete and Separation and General release agreement from a company that I co-founded and managed for some twenty-four years.
Needless to say, if you need an exceptional attorney, I could not recommend David more.
Besides being an extremely knowledgeable legal mind, you can count on David to be fair and thorough in all his dealings.

In 1996 my firm hired Mr. Burkett to represent us in a contract action against a supplier. Less than 10 days before the suit was to go before the judge Mr. Burkett contacted me and informed me that he had decided that he could not represent my firm. He gave no explanation for his action, and was insulting when I pressed him for an explanation.

David Burkett is a brilliant attorney and I highly recommend him. He represented me in a difficult real estate dispute, and from the very beginning, I was amazed by his confidence, calm, and encyclopedic command of the law. He provides superior service and follow-through and has a phenomenal attention to detail. He has an extremely sharp mind and never misses a beat. David is the consummate professional and the best communicator I have ever known. His perceptiveness and intuition practically border on a sixth sense. His advice is clear and direct, and he is brutally honest. David treats everyone with a high level of respect and consideration, no matter which side they are on. I trust him completely as my counsel and I would not consider using anyone else. Five Stars, and well deserved!

I walked in his door not even sure if I had a case. He assured me that I did and went to work right away proving it. While I didn't get everything, my judgement was fair and I am very happy. I would and will definitely use him and his firm again and recommend him and his firm to family and friends.

David and his partner Lee Burdette were hired by me to resolve a fee dispute with my divorce attorney. They discussed my case in a professional and comprehensive manner. I'm impressed with their intergity, work ethic and willingness to work with a clear and upfront billing system. Their understanding of the law regarding consummer affairs and the Washington Bar's code of ethics resulted in this case being settled within the budget/fee they quoted and within my settlement offer. I would highly recommend both of these attorney's because of their intergrity and knowldge.

David is exceptional. David has represented me in general business matters, business acquisitions, city and county bids, and real estate transactions. When explaining legal options, David has always treated me with the utmost respect and understanding. David has the big firm horsepower to get the job done, but without the big firm drawbacks. I highly recommend him.

David Burkett has represented our company for 15 years and has been an invaluable asset to us. His depth of wisdom and skill in multiple facets of the law are simply unparalleled. While many attorneys have a habit of running up their fees, Dave's advice and desire to do the right thing, has often come at his own expense, by solving matters quickly and efficiently. In my opinion, there simply is not a more qualified or more competent attorney than Mr. David Burkett.

We have multiple businesses ranging from maritime interests to office buildings to single family housing. We have been legal guardians requiring legal assistance and are property owners with sticky situations. Dave has helped us with it all. If he doesn't know about the subject, he learns quickly and comes up with straight-forward, no-nonsense advice. His follow-through is impeccable and to top it off, he's a darn nice guy. After more than 10 years as our attorney, we would not turn to anyone else.
