What some of our former client's say

"Skilled Trial Lawyer But He Is an Even Better Person. He's Intelligent Caring Attorney You Can't Go Wrong."

Typically I do not give 5 stars to anyone for anything, but Mr. Burkhalter and his staff have always gone above and beyond for me. Not only is Mr. Burkhalter a skilled trial lawyer but he is an even better person he is genuine in his want to provide you with the best legal representation possible. He does not "cherry coat" and lays out the case and your options for you. He is honest, hard-working, and diligent and over the past 22 years he has become a loyal friend to me. His staff are professional, friendly, and ALWAYS willing to answer your questions and work with you when you need to get things done.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance that you contact and engage his counsel if you are in need of the best possible representation you can find. Mr. Burkhalter is, indeed, that attorney.

"David Burkhalter is not only an attorney, but a gentleman."

My case was a very complex wrongful termination case, and he pursued it with gusto, to say the least. He was always respectful and courteous to me, making me feel at ease at all times. From the minute I met him, he gave me comfort and confidence that even someone as insignificant as I had been made to feel was important to him. He deserves the respect of his clients. I have never seen anyone in any occupation with the resolve and determination that David demonstrates. He is one of the finest people I have ever met, and I would highly recommend him to any client with a work-related case.

After almost two years of working with him, my case was settled yesterday (we won) but he dogmatically pursued until he got the best settlement possible for me, and I will ever be grateful.

"David is tough in the trenches"

When the bottom dropped out of my work world and I found that I needed an attorney to represent me, I consulted a number of friends who were attorneys. I asked, “If it was your father, your sister, or one of your kids, who would you have represent them?” Unanimously they all replied David Burkhalter.

My next question was why David? To a person they cited his ethics, his reputation, his comprehensive knowledge, his trial experience and the fact that he fights like hell for his clients.

In the trenches when it gets messy, David is tough. Never once did I feel alone or overwhelmed because I knew he had my back and was fighting for me. I knew he had a plan and a strategy which would win the day. And he was able to do that for me, too.
