My office, Burman Law, is recognized as a leader in legal technology.  We are constantly training and looking for ways to use robust technology to lessen the time it takes to litigate a case, and to make litigation less expensive.  The Burman Law Client Portal is an example of our commitment to expanding legal services through technology.

My wife of more than 30 years, Lisa Burman, keeps me focused on the things that really matter, and my four children amaze me with their passion for education and drive to be the best.

I enjoy co-counseling with lawyers in tough cases, and helping people searching to “make right” a tough situation.  I look forward to talking about your case.
